The Fight against Inconsideration

    I have done something similar to your opponent.  My opponent took my queen very early on and it set me back on my heels.  I could immediately have resigned but decided not to do so until I'd looked at the position to see whether my opponent and I might still get some pleasure from playing out some more moves.  I did not give a high priority to this but a day or two later I had spent a few minutes looking at the position and decided I would play on. I had read a couple of articles about the queen for two rooks exchange and wanted to see how dominant my opponent's queen would be. I did not have a plan and another day went by until I bothered to find another couple of minutes to settle on some way to go about further play.  It was a three day time limit and I think I had four or five hours left by then.  I subsequently played out the game with my usual rhythm.

    Which means I am not so sure as you that your opponent was motivated by spite.

    My opponent held no grudge because we subsequently played a couple more times together.

    Chess.com should create new time controls for exactly this kind of problem.

    Instead of a simple time control of 14 days, for example, they should have composite time controls like 14/7/3 days: you get up to 14 days per move when you're being considerate, up to 7 days when you're being neither considerate nor inconsiderate, and only 3 days when you're being inconsiderate.

    Once again people try to change time controls retroactively after a game has begun.

    There is nothing wrong with using your allotted time. In fact, intelligent players who have been around the game a while understand that if you don't use your reflection time wisely you lose the game on the board, or lose the game on time.

    That's chess.

    Whiners go elsewhere.
