    Pawn moves also reset the 50-move rule.

    Not resigning and waiting out time in live chess is a gesture, I often see.

    Even if it's just the last 20 seconds, they will let the clock run down without making a move = GESTURE.

    Yeah there's not much you can do if they shamefully just let the clock run down, but if they keep giving you the move...

    Because you head a group which encourages troll-like behaviour; trolls are the plauge of internet forums.

    listen guys, the hardest insult of all times. Make sure you are sitting on a safe seat: " hi Rainbow, nice troll games. You are the bullet king!"

    Well, to be fair, he doesn't "head" the group. He's a member. Which of course is no less prestigious, but it means it isn't fair to criticize him for heading the group.

    Understand that you dislike people who do not resign in lost positions; nevertheless i think it is bad sportmanship to mess with your opponent the way you did, especially in game 1.

    I think it is bad sportmanship to use premove to run your lone K around the board ;)

    I think that when your opponent gets a fifth queen, you'd better resign.
