Should have added ffl in the end. For faul language
No joke. I just had a guy send me a PM asking if I shaved my genitals. (edited)
2. It also doesn't stop you from placing a piece on a different square; you can just "accidentally" drop a piece and place it on a different square, if your opponent isn't paying close attention.
3. It also doesn't stop you from taking back a losing move; you can pick up your queen, for example, and place it on every legal square without letting it go, and then let it go on the best one.
How do you define "placing" a piece on a square?
"Touching" is easily defined and seen by the opponent (or even the guys playing their own games on the next table). If you have to involve a complex combination of time spent in the same position and distance to the center of the square it gets harder.
Why should I be offended? I just get a kick out of see people banned
Yeah. I ban myself sometimes!!!
Let's jest get to the point!
Hi sweetie, you are under arrest for digging through old threads and bumping them. Put your hands on top of your head so I can tickle you freely.
Ever heard the proverb, "don't beat a dead horse"?
It's flog. Just saying.
Americans say beat. I guess Brits say flog?
I believe Kaynight is Scottish. Correct me if I'm wrong.
British. Rule Britannia!
Thanks for the clarification, my lord.
Very well, don't flog a dead horse either.
Just noticed from looking at earlier posts in this thread that MrDamonsmith's account was closed. Anybody know why?
If your oppenents hand keeps blocking your view it could disrupt calculation.
Gawwd.... A new member... Wind up alert....Wind up alert.
You don't even get the question, do you?
BTW, I'm just a new member on this site. I've been playing chess for much longer than you think, and probably longer than you.
But not long enough to understand why touch move is important...
In casual games it isn't. I could play chess casually for 20 years, and it might never occur to me that a rule like touch move could be useful.
