Ok, will investigate.

I believe it is handled between the client and server internally, and perhaps in the ca game type it doesn't exist but was issued by the client anyways via some glitch.
It may not have anything to do with the problem you experienced.
I honestly think that it's more likely to be a glitch. Timeouts are always buggy. If the server is in timeout no one can join or they will get an overflow error. I would surmise that pause suffers from the same problems, but I haven't tested it.
I'm certain this person was messing with this server.
This is about as unlikely as it gets.
It's possible they are an ID employee abusing their powers,
Only the server owner, and _maybe_ ops have the ability to pause the server. Random clients cannot do this. They wouldn't need to 'take over' a server since they would arguably already have the ability to control it.
but more worrying is that it may be possible to take over spawns, or possibly any server for that matter.
Your opponent is there, it just shows that he quit. Click the 'switched/quit' bar to see who is listed there.
I thought I'd even see if that match existed in my stats...and it does. The stats are way off 'considering I had no opportunity to play', but I won apparently. Where did these numbers even come from? Also I have no opponent:
Very likely none of the above.
So hack, or ID employees being terrible trolls?
