2019 UPDATED RULE ON DISCONNECTERS, SNEAKY REJOINERS, AND ABUSIVE TIME WASTERS

Last year's new enforcement, begun as a trial in August 2018 (January 2019 for SR) and carried on after that is hereby made an official part of the GS&FR. Two major aspects of the original rule are being updated here:

1) We are adding a severe penalty step at a 5th offense for disconnecters and abusive time wasters.

2) We have shortened the offense recognition time for the 15 second move timer offense from 5 minutes and 90% of moves to 2 minutes and 75% of moves.

Beyond this, there's been some streamlining of language, and overall shortening of the original.

The updated DC,SR, and ATW rule, spoilered for quick view, will read in its entirety as follows:
