Why are chess players so rude?

    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.

    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. Smile
