Yes, it's fair to resign after a few moves if you're playing against someone marked as computer assistance. Your rating won't be affected because of their mark.

You technically can abort the game, and it won't affect your rating. However, after a lot of "abort game" the lobby will ban you for 15 minutes. :(
