NO NO NO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NONO NO Stalemate should be kept.
I make that 37 NO and 3 YES.
Whats the point, not like anythings gonna change cause some guys on chess.com said so
Exactly, DaBigOne. And as explained earlier and more recently, thread was in response to 2 earlier threads advocating abolition of stalemate. It was possibly tongue in cheek, it certainly was not by anyone wanting stalemate abolished. I think what it has shown is that the majority of chessplayers who could be bothered to respond have no interest in changing the rule. The pointless thread is the other main one going at moment demanding that stalemate be abolished because its OP was daft enough to draw two games by stalemate.
I for one, think stalemate should be abolished. I see no logical reason for it to be kept. If you can't move, you've lost.
36 no. 4 yes.
The "nays" appear to have it, nearly 10 to 1.
No! Nee! Nein! Non! Ne! Na! Nie! Nyet! and Nay!
(a more or less random selection, in random order).
37 Nein. 4 yea
