Disconnects, bot a player immediately

This has really become an issue.
If a player boots, disconnects, pc problem lags. Players are kicking and banning that player.
In no way am I saying, take the kick and ban away; it really helps with a lot of issues.
Is there anyway to program a timer? Such as 3 minutes for that player to return or a sub to take that seat.
Without making a player that's left, to play with a bot?

Easy wins aren't really wins. When they're dishonest.

I don't think it is fair to ban that player if they got disconnected. A player should be allowed to return within a minute or two if they had a techncial issue at home but are able to come back to finish the game.

Also, I strongly disagree with allowing the table host to seat a bot without even looking for a sub. This is unfair to the remaining player. It is also unfair to allow a sub that the remaining player objects to. If the host has the power to do that, the remaining player should have the right to leave the game without penalty.
