I have had a number of hands in which I have used Disconnect Protection for the right reasons. But keep in mind that I normally play Limit and the site I play at does not offer All-in Protections for NL tables. Having that protection has probably helped me save about $750 over the last few months so I am glad to have it. Although I do run into a cheater doing the same thing you mentioned earlier every once in a while.

How does doing it less often make it okay??

He probably means he used it the way it was intended, that his disconnect was beyond his control(crash, internet clog). He would have lost alot of money had he been folded for not responding.

I think that having the protection is a double edged sword. I've lost a few pots at Full Tilt because my wireless would crap out and their time bank is so short that when I reconnect I have folded. However, I don't have to deal with wankers who abuse the system. I'm glad that Party has ways of disabling this for reported cheaters.
