Some are interested, so let them be interested, if you are not then you do not have to be, no need to force us to comply with your perspective now.
Resignation is a basic right for a chess player.
If you want a website to cater for the free will of everyone then how would you tally the whim of that will so that it suits everyone? This is not a democracy, this is a capitalistic enterprise, therefore it's simply more profitable for the proprietors of this website not to allow you to resign a game when it's not your turn, because as a subscriber you have an unlimited number of games, so the timing of your resignation is not important as you may simply start up another game any time. This is a motivation for you to subscribe, as being stuck waiting for a game that you're losing is more of an issue for non-subs who are limited to 6 games.
And, I believe I said You should, idealistically, have no real interest in the manipulation of your rating and instead you should just simply try to win every game regardless of the ratings effect is has.
I'm not trying to force you to accept my viewpoint, I'm stating what I believe to be an idealistic condition. I also believe that idealistically we should all live forever and have lots of sex with ridiculously pretty girls, but that doesn't mean that I'm forcing you to accept my viewpoint.
And also, if you don't rush your moves then you'd be able to make the decision to resign before you click on the move
