i agree with Daily Chess
"OMG!! Sooner, Did you just call my comment Irrelevant??!!!" .....(as a true histrionic would reply)..... "I Can TOtally NOT BELIEVE You Just DID That!!!"
Now try to calm down, motherinlaw. There must have been a little misunderstanding. I'm sure it was my fault, not yours. We will get you one of your anxiety pills and take you to have a little visit with your psychologist about it, and everything will be aaaaaall right, I'm sure. Okay? That's a goooood girl. LOL!
my vote is "Daily Chess". because you play with "day" time controls. second would be "Slow Chess" :)
I am voting on, "Daily Chess", as well. Sounds good, to the point, and it is a daily event for most of us, who signs on to make a move or two. Day Chess is an option, even though it doesn't sound as smooth as "daily chess".
"Daily Chess" sounds like a newspaper. Very mundane name. Quite in the mainstream of the banal. Really ho-hum.
"...what has me rolling on the floor laughing..."
Having a fit of histrionic personality disorder, ChazR? Although, I understand the book you quoted to use as a means of insulting some unnamed person instead of as a serious reference work of an academic discipline for a legitimate purpose refers to speech in association with the personality disorder you cited, perhaps it could refer to ones style of expressing mirth, as well? If so, I think your laughing while rolling around on the floor would fit the bill perfectly.
CORRespondence + ELectronic + ONline = Correlon Chess (or Correon).
(Plus, you can carry on the game a bit later.)
Pardon my candor, but that's just plain stupid.
To capture the war-like nature of the game:
1. online chess -> siege chess
2. live chess -> skirmish chess
Blitz, of course, comes from the fast-paced war tactic called blitzkrieg. It seems to be a fairly popular way of naming chess related stuff.
Very visual metaphors!
Preventative is disputed.
Authority? I didn't think you needed authority to dispute something, but regardless, no.
More to the point, I meant that there was a lot of contention (aside from mine) about the validity of preventative. I've also always subscribed to the view that this is an evolving language, however, so common usage should be given a lot of credence in these matters. My preference is still to use preventive.
All that said, up until yesterday I honestly thought it was not even a word, but a little digging shows that despite the contention both are acceptable, however:
Curiously, if they are truly interchangeable, then it's interesting to note that preventive is apparently the preferred form in common usage, at least as far as google trends is representative (or should that be representive?) of that, and that in addition, the form "preventative" is much more prevalent in the US than anywhere else.
PP&J = Proliforation of Priorities and Jargon. Not a good thing.
For anyone this may apply to:
There is the bona fide condition of Histrionic Personality Disorder (section 301.50 of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychological Association (DSM-IV).
This disorder is characterized by an excessive attention seeking behavior where the person is uncomfortable in situations when he/she/it is not the center of attention. The person consistently uses physical appearance to draw attention and also uses seductive or sexually provocative behavior inappropriately and prematurely believes relationships are intimate. The style of speech is impressionistic, lacks detail, and show a theatrical (drama-queen/king) exaggerated expression of emotion. Such a person displays shifting and shallow emotions and is easily suggestible and influenced by others or circumstances. The prognosis is guarded in the case of this disorder, due mostly to the person’s lack of insight and awareness into themselves. This is compounded by the person’s failure to face reality and recognize they are just not so special or important.
In other words, opinions are like belly-buttons, everyone has one. The oppressive need of one person to be the best is rather childish.
Is there a site called "Chess Zone"or "Chess Mates", "Chess Friends ''or ''World Chess " does anybody know ? "Correspondence Chess " title has now dropped a little in percentage terms by the way
Thank you friend ketchuplover!
Correspondence chess implies correspondence of some kind between the players, such as traditional postal mail or email. This is turn-based chess. You make a move when it is your turn and your opponent does the same - and there is no direct correspondence between players. The server does that. Just my two cents...
In divorce law, the "corespondent" is the mistress or lover of the unfaithful spouse. Might be quite appropos for many of us--- depends on the number of hours/day spent playing chess and posting brilliant, informative, relevant and supremely witty comments in forums ... like this forum ........ hmm.........
