It depends. If they are moving slowly from the start then that is their prerogative. What I find frustrating is when people make several moves a day until they get into trouble and then slow the game down and wind down their timebank, while still moving in their other games.
All but one of my opponents are moving pretty slowly at the moment - I think three of them are hoping I'll offer a draw out of frustration, lose track of the position, or are waiting for my rating to go above 1,800 again. They'll be disappointed - I want my rating to go back over 1,800 so I won't offer draws in won positions, I know exactly how to beat them and am more likely to mess up if they move quickly, and my rating is only going to go down if my wins come more slowly than my losses.
You've only got 5 in progress games, why not start a few other games?
