    Playing a ladder game. 1/7 time control. I challenged but opponent has not moved and all his time has expired. What now, the board is just sitting there. I now see that my opponent has not moved in sixty days..Thanks, Ron

    A skull just popped up which I promptly took. However his rating was 1484 & mine 1335 & I dropped 10 points. Is that normal?

    Because there were no moves in your game against pbodine I suspect it is classed as unrated under the "three moves minimum" rule even though all ladder games are supposed to be rated.
    Therefore, I don't think your rating can have been affected by this game that never was.
    Pbodine has now been removed from the ladder under the 60 day rule.
    You've also moved up the ladder 5 places which also suggests your rating drop was down to another game.
