Leaving via quit doesn't result in probation, dashboarding does. I quit, not dashboard.

Exactly. Still not a fan of it but I understand why it happens.

At least you are doing it the right way. If you do it the right way, Probation is not an issue.

The folks who complain are Dashboarding / Doing it wrong.

Ok, first off, don't talk to me like I'm one of the people dashboarding. Second, leaving a game doesn't give you probation. Read what I post, don't make assumptions based on your "superior" status.

18+ days and zero probations.  You need to take going negative and a lose for a game that you had very little to do with not so seriously.  You house payment isn't going to get missed, you will still have food on the table, and your loved ones will still love you even if you have an unflattering match here or there.  As an added bonus, if you stay in the game more often then you will not be joining so many matches in progress and consequently not feel the need to leave matches so often.  Thereby likely taking you out of the realm of probation and then you can spend more time enjoying the game rather than watching the 5 minute clock count down.  Or you can keep doing what you are doing and getting frustrated with a game that is supposed to be fun and relaxing.  Your choice either way.

Whats funny to me is these folks don't realize they are creating and intensifying the very problem they are complaining about.

The times I stay in the games and the next lobby splits up the players into teams I get stuck with the same sad saps that provided the other team with all those kills I'm in no better position. I do try to play with others when I can, however not many people on my list are on the same schedule as I am.

I think that it all depends on the quality of the "sad saps" left in the lobby.  I've seen blow outs where my team obiviously had a couple of good players on it that just couldn't overcome the odds.  In those cases, I'll stay for the next round because with 3 good players, the odds are that we'll be able to turn things around.  However, if nobody looks to be even remotely decent then I will move on to a new lobby at the end of the match.  That is unless I'm working on a challenge that is easier to achieve when not playing the objective.  In which case I'll gladly stay another round and work on my challenge guilt free.  Odds are the really bad players will move on after the second match and then I can get back to going for the win with my new randoms.  You have to figure that most games that you join in progress are going to be on the losing side.  So if you're going to take a loss anyway, you might as well make the best of it.  Besides nothing irks the killwhores and stat guys more than to take a good kd lashing or keep them off of their scorestreaks.  The odds are pretty good that they will leave the enemy team after the second match as well.
