  3. Letting Time Run Out Bug

Ive gotten a few warning “~letting time run out instead of resigning will result in a temp ban.” This is great except that I get them when I have seconds left on the clock and time runs out while I think. Im not the kind to make random moves without thinking eith 6 secs left. Theres no point in that. I look for a good move that helps my position. So if these warnings are in fact taken into consideration I would say thats a BUG. I understand something of the like with 2+ minutes left. Usually even 1 minute. But 20 secs?! 6 secs?! Thats not tome wasting. Even with 1 minute ideally the algorithm shouldnt warn if its not frequent and not a clearly lost position.
