Harassing players by a loophole in the system

In a recent game, "not craw CRAW" got hit hard with the queen and decided to harass the players in the game.

He would disconnect. Then, return before the 2 minute timer would kick him out.
Then, after returning, he would repeat the disconnect.

He did this, seemingly, forever.

During this time, the game was locked because we would have to wait for the 2 minutes while he was disconnected.
But, when he returned, we could not kick/ban him because he was not repeatedly stalling.

So, he would keep disconnecting and reconnecting over and over just within the 2 minute window and the game could not proceed.

His obvious intention was to (1) harass the players (2) get them to abandon the game so he would not get a loss on his rating.

This went on for 40 minutes and the other two players quit. I was not going to let "not craw CRAW" get away with it. So, I stayed till the end.

BTW, there was no guide on line at the time to assist.

There are two reasons for this post:

(1) I hope the developers can close this loophole that allows such behavior
(2) If anyone has experienced this behavior from "not craw CRAW" or others, then please report it. Join in here, what ever. I reported it. If enough reports surface, maybe something can be done about it

This should be fixed now.
