    Trolling in itself is a matter of opinion. I could only call myself a troll if other people around me have experienced butthurt while being in my presence, and they blame the butthurt they have experienced on me. They take their insecurities and inability to adjust their attitude for the situation on me. So in a sense, these people who become butthurt are allowing me to control how they feel, and thus they depend on me to say the things that makes them feel warm and fuzzy. But if I fail, then they are miserable because they are unable to think for themselves.

    For example, if I called someone a cocksucking piece of shit, it us up to them to sense the butthurt...and when they do, it's all my fault. They can put on their grumpy pants and go out to experience road rage, cut the neighbor's tree down, respond to my post with death threats and so on and so forth,

    or

    They can think for themselves and look at the cocksucking piece of shit comment in a different way. They can ask me, "How can a motionless piece of fecal matter suck on a rooster?" or, "Does the cock suck on the piece of shit?" And by thinking for themselves, they avoided butthurt all together and therefor not think of me as a troll, but, as an opportunity for sarcasm, a chance to make grammar and spelling corrections, to countertroll, and so on.

    So a troll is only a troll if the person feeling the butthurt had nothing to counter the comments with, and therfor calls that person a troll.

    The touch-move rule produced an even more disastrous result for Fischer in his game asBlack against Wolfgang Unzicker at Buenos Aires 1960.[2] In the position diagrammed at right, Fischer touched his h-pawn, intending to play 12...h6. He then realized that, because of the pin on the g-fileWhite could simply play 13.Bxh6; 13...gxh6 would be illegal, since it would put Black's king in check by White's queen. Having touched his h-pawn, the touch-move rule required Fischer to play either 12...h6?? or 12...h5??, an almost equally bad move that fatally weakens Black's kingside. Fischer accordingly played 12...h5?? and resigned just ten moves later—his shortest loss ever in a serious game (Mednis 1997:110–11).

    This rule is sensible and fair. And it is often abused in casual chess. Many players, particularly those who are not very experienced, will notice that something is wrong about a move in the process of making that move or just after making it. Then the temptation to change the move is often hard to resist.

    But it is simply bad manners to change the move in the process of making it, and even poorer manners to change a move that has already been made. Besides, changing the rule is against the rules of chess, as well as against the rules of good sportsmanship.

    "changing the rule is against the rules of chess, as well as against the rules of good sportsmanship."


    does this make sence to anyone? changing a rule can not be against the rules, that is why you change it. And good sportsmanship is following the rules and etikets that is there. Once the rules or the etiket changes, sportsmanship follows.

    It fixes the grammar problem, and it points out that TOS = Terms of Service.

    This post clearly shows that the swearing in my earlier post was opportunity for him to point out, that, yes indeed, that I broke some rules. As if I were the first.

    In addition to TOS, allow me to add YHJBT and HAND.

    I'm guessing yhjbt is "You have just been trolled", but hand I dont know?

    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.

    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.
