Opponent one has 15 seconds left on their clock to play a move,it was a tricky situation and demanded some time but the clock ran out.This player was accused of time wasting and a ban imposed was likely.

Opponent two, In a 3min game my opponent has 80 seconds left to play their next move,i can see that they have become disconnected but not until the clock runs out does the exact message come up
Why the same message for two different situations?
