Once I am in the right location, i am ready to receive serve. If i am still walking to get into the right location, i am NOT ready, and will indicate I am not if the server tries to serve.
I get what you are saying, but I've played against quick servers too... as I am walking back to receive, as soon as I turn around to get ready they are in their service motion. Was I in the serve spot? Yes. Was I ready? No. Was I causing an un-reasonable delay? No. Quick serves are a tactic I don't use, but I could see how it would give someone an edge... its another form of gamesmanship.
