Feel free to read through this case for the exact verdict on this. You'll see that both the sitter and the sittee were punished: viewtopic.php?f=239&t=145859
Though to be fair (as Ahunda pointed out) it's possible that an emergency happened that caused you to not be able to come back. This seems to be allowed as long as it is not consistently happening. However, this is not what Stupid was saying.
I have something written up and I went through most of the top of the case example you presented as well as a few of the examples of turn abuse. This case has no relevance of what I am referring, I mean read the case, it's not the same situation at all. I will probably state a long winded summary shortly. But to put it brief. The purpose of team games and clan mates is to play as a team, if one member is unsure of the best move makes some suggestions and the other 2 or 3 teammates are unable to give feedback right away but they make a best decision and one of them takes the turn for said teammate I personally dont have a problem with this as long as it is not every turn or every game. Since there is no moral objective on this situation like there is in rl situations (i.e. murder and rape is objective) the morality of turn covering will need to be decided from broad agreement of the community. Just because Lindax doesnt like a teammate covering a turn per example I gave earlier doesnt make it immoral. The reality is if the teammates were able to get together in real time and discuss the turn, the turn would have been taken exactly the same way, hence team game, hence intelligent teammates will agree on a plan and take the turn the same way, if they can discuss it.
