Why Internet Backgammon Frustrates Me

You're playing a game of backgammon. It's going well, the randomly selected opponent seems to be fairly well matched to you, then:

You roll a double (they bail)
You send one of their pieces to 'the jail' (they bail or say "that was luck" with the darn pull down menu messages")
They take forever to start their turn, but are on you if you waste a second moving your piece

It makes me long for the days of playing against my siblings.

Don't even get me started on the frustration of internet hearts. I'll play against the computer, thanks...
