I could argue that the longer I spend taking my turn, the more time I have to think and the more likely I am to make the optimal choice.  Therefore I will always take the maximum amount of time that the rules allow.  When do you draw the line and call it abuse if it's well within the rules and I'm simply exercising my right to taking my time?

It's not withing the rules to slowroll.

Not on this site, as I already stated it has been and will continue to be grounds for banning.

Not in the rest of life either. It's about an unwritten contract between all human beings - if you want to have fun together, like playing a game, then you will have to take each others feelings into account. If you haven't already learned that from the rest of life, it's a big problem. Not the kind of problem that gets solved with an additional rule.

The purpose of a rule is not to teach people human decency, that is well outside our scope.  It's to mitigate the impact those bad apples can have on others.  Sure, a blacklist will help perhaps...but having rules that are so easily abused is a welcome invitation for trolls and a big reason why they are such a problem.

You give people too much credit.  Of course we should all have human decency.  But that simply is not reality. 

Update: just beat a slow-roller.  Took me over 2 hours.  Said they were slow rolling because I got lucky drawing chapel with estates.  Do we really expect someone that deranged to know that what they're doing is against the rules when it's not explicitly said so?  And the game makes no effort to prevent it?

Do you remember their username? Was that an unrated game? Or was it your second game against that player?

It was a rated game. Not sure if it was my first time matching with them. I'm not a fan of public shaming so I won't post their username here.

So we can't publicly shame the slow rollers, etc, but then the moderators are not actively doing anything about the problem.  I'm still in a game with a slow roller.  I have been playing it for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  He is clicking on one card at a time as slow as he can since he is losing...  Hopefully you guys will come up with  solution for this soon.
