I agree with the whole "if the saber is off, do not attack!" way of playing. Especially in Duel servers.
The nice thing is that most people who play in Duel know the rules and leave their saber unignited and bow before a match. Then there's the type of players who don't care and try to do the Strong stance at you when you are trying to bow.
One more reason why it is nicer to play on the Zone than the handful of n00bs who play on public servers
I used to be that way, but I got tired of people taking advantage of it. If they need to stop the fight to fix something fair enough, but if they turn off their saber just to keep me from attacking while they wait for the best time to attack--well I feel the need to teach them that that is a poor idea.
