You are absolutely right - some players try to win games despite their lack of skill.  

The will try to run down the time by playing in hopeless positions, they will make live stones as dead and all to 'win' the game.  They lack respect for their opponent but ironically they also show how weak they really are.

The dead stones issue should to be fixed - other Go servers determine dead stones and count automatically after the end of the game,  this one should too.
Thank you for the posts on dead stones. They were informative, I lost a game marking dead stones incorrectly.
Thank you for the dead zone clarification. I marked my dead stones which were less than my opponents and he still won. Did he mark zero dead stones? That seems like cheating to me, unless I am just to inexpierienced. This has happened to me twice.
