hopefully it is programmed that way you do not get paired with the same player again after aborting the game (on chess.com I aborted games vs. morons who opened 1. a3 and 10 seconds later I was paired again with them, counted as 2 aborts and sanctions started from number of aborts no matter if the same opponent - only a year ago or so chess.com stopped that nonsense)
#9 Certainly, although lichess.org/terms-of-service already warns players to not be jerks:

Why did you abort when playing as black when your opponent opened with 1.a3?
Kochnitski favoured opening on the a file.
I don't know how it is on chess.com, but on Lichess when creating a game, you can choose the range of your opponent's rating. Thus there is no excuse to abort the game because you don't like your opponent rating or opening or the color you got.
But I often start a game with a missclick because i dont pay attention at the rating and then i get 1200 guy ... do you understand ...
Well, maybe he's 1200 because he misclicks and doesn't pay attention.
@polylogarithmique Touché! :)
