This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Does simply stopping play and saying, "Game over. I'm done. I will not be hosting another session, and if you guys want to continue, I am not interested in joining you" count? If so, I did it with my 5e game last summer.

I have done this once with a group of players a long time ago. They were just horrible.
Fighting with each other as characters and players at the table most of the time.  Attacked just about everything moving.
Lots of shouting, fighting, bickering etc.
I ran one session and at the end of it I told them I would never run a game for them aver again.

Not really a rage quit, as I finished the session barely. But I knew I was wasting my time and made it very clear I wasn't returning.   
That's what you get I suppose if you answer an ad in a games store looking for a GM. This was pre-internet days, late 80s.
