i just joined chess. com. I thought you could chat with your opponent but the system is not giving me that option. what is up with this?
People are also allowed to disable chat. Perhaps you were playing someone who has his chat turned off. People do this sometimes when they don't want to be distracted.
I'm just the opposite I apologize (saying "sorry") whenever I capture their queen. That event rarely happens although.

That probably pisses-off some people, winerkleiner
I use chat for psychiological warfare :D
For folks using mobile clients, chatting isn't really convenient at all.
Yeah I can see how that might be taken that way, but it is sincere, on the small chance it occurs.
It wouldn't make me mad, but we know that "gg" pisses-off some people. I personally don't like when people say, "Do you want to take back that move?" It's annoying
Chatting during the game can be easily misinterpretted as stalling, or distracting.... Wait until the game is over, IMO...
IThere was someone who was beating me like 5-1 and said to me "sucker"... wow. Okay, if someone is losing and is getting annoyed I can understand it, but they are winning by a lot... and feeling the need to insult their opponents still?
Are these miserable people ever happy? They should be glad if they're winning, not taking it as an opportunity to abuse their opponents. If I am winning lots I'm generally in a good mood, and might start to feel sorry for my opponent.
There are plenty of smart ar##es here as on any site like this. They are not so great when getting beaten though. Came across another one of these dim wits today who thought it a good idea to start sledging during the game because he had such a high rating - way above my lousy standard. (Not the first experience of this). Well he was getting beaten eventually and then promptly disconnected from the site.
Who cares though. It's just a little board game. I would not waste my time communicating with these juvenile intellects from the trailer parks.
Well that must be hilarious when you cannot spell.
Anyway, good luck with that.
I sometimes respond "do you want to take back that face?"
what's the hardest thing to do ?
(2) take the chit-chat
seems to be option (2) hahahaaaahhhh !!!
Well I for one find it very easy to lose.
Would you like to take back that post?
Yeah they're poor sportmenship in every type of games.
I rather enjoy it when someone takes the time to chat during a game. Some of the more interesting players can be met / friended this way.
As Siegbert Tarrasch stated before his match with Emanuel Lasker for the World Championship: "I have but two words to say to Dr. Lasker: 'check' and 'mate.'"
Lasker blew him away in the actual match, of course, and didn't even have to listen to him whine about it.
