Not until the royal porcelain pointer gets here I am not.
OMG it must be detachable. You must like King Missile then? :)
Well thats some pretty thin skin. Was this his first day on the internet?
Chess.com is pretty tame next to, say, Starcraft. If I even hinted at the stuff I was called there I would be banned from here.
My response was usually to type "umadbro?" over and over.
It's just tedious. You got guys out there that can beat each other up and laugh about it in the end while in gaming forums guys stoop to the lowest possible levels over some disagreements about spreadsheets. I'm not expecting people to hold hands and sing kumbayah but I do expect a little decency.
The internet just seems to be a place where such disregard for others is supposed to be expected and it's all just tedious.
I was just about to start singing that!
Is the karaoke music on utube Kay?
... I feel like singing too!!
Actually it sounds good to the music of Auld Lang Syne
I am as well. This guy beats me and then berates me. Leaves demeaning notes and messages. When I finally tell him to leave me alone, he sends me a message after telling me he forwarded my message to an admin on grounds of verbal abuse. It will be quite funny if I get to explain the whole deal. I don't understand what compels someone to act that way.
He's probably a kid... I get that all the time... that's why I have over 200 ppl blocked :)
I joined chess.com yesterday. I coach kids and I wondered if this was a site I could recommend to them. I haven't played for a while but I am 2149 FIDE, so I know the moves.
Anyway, played a game and won and my opponent went into this long rambling argument that I was cheating using a computer. I shrug it off, then play a couple more games. I get 2 private messages below from another user
So, are many players on Chess.com such bad losers? I can't honestly recommend this site to the kids I teach if this is the sort of nonsense that goes on. What do the mods do about it?
As I say, I am very new here (1 day only) so I would be grateful for views.
Honestly, I've been on this site for about 3 years, and I only met 1 person like that...
Welcome to the internet!
It's the same thing at any site, trust me.
Bunch of twelve-year-old brats, shooting their mouths off, because they not within striking distance of you.
