Yes he does, agreed.
Like I said earlier, no matter what it's called it will not explain how the games work, the time controls etc. So best to go with the term many are already familiar with and that is logical, Correspondence Chess. Still would like to see a link in the title Correspondence Chess that takes members to a forum which explains what Correspondence Chess is exactly, how it works, for those who don't know what it means, as it would make the site more user friendly, and I'm a believer in the more user friendly a site is, the better that site is.
Still, if it's the perfect adjective Erik's after then perhaps consulting a thesaurus would have been easier than the community. I have to think that his coming here signifies that there is an element of finding "the right brand" at play in his thinking.
What is "the right brand" is obviously subjective, and as he likes to emphasize himself to others they need to add "IMO", so in this case it will be "IHO" - in his opinion. :)
Of course it's subjective, that's why it's ultimately Erik's call.
Im a member since 2009 and used already on that name. So isuggestto stick toonline chess
You might be right about a thesaurus, but the name given to what we know as cc is about advertising and marketing. Read; money.
I've got it! "Chess for Shut-Ins!"

Thank you Sandra......"Chess for All, 24/7"
"Play Anytime" Chess for "Masters" And "Newbies"
(that's right--- you got it --- I'm suggesting we call it "Pac-Man!")
Ahh, but it's available on a mobile device (which, incidentally, also works from my basement).
The way I see it Erik could call it some big corporate name and they could pay for the right to use it...or have a guest host weekly chess name like they do on the telly.
See what happens when I skip coffee.

And this is a survey question.
Correspondence Chess sounds long but official.
Echess is too short.
