I saw a match the other day (beijing olympics final ma lin vs wang hao) and noticed that in one of the rallies, ma's flick bounced on the net 3-4 times. The rally was allowed to carry on. However, in one of my matches the same happened but my umpire said I lost the point. What is the real rule?

The ball can bounce on the net more than once. Once it hits the table thought then the ball is only allowed to bounce once.
