Welcome to the online world. I've played entire matches without exchanging a word.
You don't need a list of "bad" players, that is too judgemental. Instead a list of good PBEM partners is a good idea.
PS Either of you two looking for another game?
I agree that we don't necessarily need a list of rude players who quit without notice (it has happened to me too...), and while chatting in game or with PM messages/e-mail messages is not required to enjoy the game, I personally think and feel that it helps in terms of building a friendly relationship that not only has value at a personal level, but also at a community level which helps to support and ensure that great games like this continue to be improved and developed.
A list of players people recommend, on the other hand, may not be a bad idea!
I could personally think of a few right now...
