    why does a player accept a open invite, makes one move then, vanishes for days? they are mostly non subs too... you would think they would want to finish the game since they are limited.

    Short attention span?

    Maybe they have a life outside this site?

    They are pondering the position up to 30 moves?

    At least at that point you can still trash the game if you want.

    What I never got was why people will accept the open invite and then trash the game right away. Although that's fixed somewhat now by the invite being reopened.
