This topic is old but still there is no fix for the problem.
As a new user I find GossipBot very irritating and complitely useless. Also the endless crusade against droppers is a vaste of time.
If the other player disconnects or leaves unfinished match he should just automacally lose it. This happens in every other bgserver why not here? There could be five minutes time to reconnect but that's it. Saving should be allowed only if both players agree to do so.
If you start a match you finish it or resign it. If you have any personal reasons or connection troubles that's you're problem not the opponents. How funny it would be if you were allowed to "save" matches in real tournament. "Sorry, I don't feel like playing now. Let's see in week or so - maybe."
Propably someone have suggested this million times before but someone should until this problem is fixed.
