More or less by accident I read about a certain type of rule violation in trading card games (even as official terms in the online version of Yu-Gi-Oh!) which is called Rule-Sharking.

“Attempting to force a non-existent rule or policy on an opponent who has made a small and repairable error.“

- Asking an opponent to admit defeat after they have drawn an extra card by accident without shuffling their hand.
