Two weights and two measures
We received indications that have deliberately delayed the games, and after analyzing their hand histories, we confirm that this is true. Some of your hand histories have been added below. In them it is possible to verify that it has used the total time allowed to act in basic decisions of desistência. This is unacceptable as it demonstrates a poor degree of etiquette, and is against the spirit of the game.
It may take time allotted for difficult decisions, or when you need to decide how to play the hand, but delaying the games deliberately is not tolerated. Your game and chat privileges have been suspended pending your acknowledgment and agreement with our requests.
In order for your privileges to be reinstated, please respond to this email with an exact copy of the following statements:
1) I agree to stop this abuse and will never again delay the game on purpose again.
2) I am aware that depending on the case, any future breach may result in the permanent termination of my account, at PokerStars' description.
Note that you will be asked to resubmit your response if the statements were not accurate.
Thank you for your cooperation.

But both were free games, so I really do not understand the parameter for analyzing
I am in favour of some kind of time clock for live play. Online, it depends on whether a player is delaying to avoid being on the bubble, or if they were really disconnected. I have had hands with AA and KK that were disconnected....man, that hurts....in one case I was in the middle of a hand with AA and got disconnected after the turn....my opponent could see that I was disconnected, and had to bet the minimum to win the hand. That was heart-breaking, as I lost about $25 I had already put into the pot.
Often the delay also represents the waiting for the bubble to burst, I have played several tournaments in which the participants when it was very close to the bubble burst were taking time to guarantee some awards.
I like the idea. Some people take so long even folding. Maybe not all tourneys. But I think poker should try it out. For 90% of hands it shouldn't take long than 60 seconds to act. Plus the time extensions of course with shot clock. For the hard hands .
