    On Red Hot Pawn's blitz site, frequently my opponent lets the clock run out but the game is not forfeited probably because he disconnected. I have yet to see a message such as, 'player has disconnected, trying to reconnect", or something like that. After I give up, 'forfeit' and return to the waiting room, usually my opponent, if he has stayed around, is already playing another game. Does anyone know what is going on and how to deal with this?

    They are sad losers.

    Move on and ignore them.

    Play on a better blitz site.
