The online games aren't so bad for me. There's a few people around with very low ratings who get worked up if they lose a game and accuse people of cheating and all that. Of course an experienced player knows you can get an online rating of 1800-2000 with two fingers up your nose.
The live players are a bigger problem. Some can get insulted over anything. For example if you're playing blitz and ram the button for a new seek after your game, the previous player may follow you around and leave comments. If I was only a bit better at blitz, I might not have to play those people. Unfortunately I'm not very good at it.
Because people don't treat each other like human beings on the internet. You're just another faceless computer opponent.
I dont look at my online chess opponents as just "faceless computer people"... because I know that behind the computer is a person... another human being. So... I treat them with as much dignity and respect as if they were sitting across from in an OTB tournament. :)
Oh, clms. You are so sweet, I'll feel bad if I beat you now so I might let you win our game.
