Is arguing about whether chess is a sport or a game a sport or a game?

    Or is it more like a way of life?

    Or perhaps it is a science...

    Or a matter of semantics.

    Only to lampoon it mercilessly (believe me, you can keep your stupid idea...although I'm not sure how it can be yours, since it's been coming up for years around here).

    Okay, is judo a sport or a game?  Or is it just a really sneaky way of tripping people?

    Are the Olympics games, or are they sports?  Are sports games?  Is art all one big game?  Is science an art?

    This is absurd, what, are you going to say chess players are capable of sensible argument next?  Have you actually read these forums?

    Arguing on the Internet, in general, is a way of life.

    Hey! Don't call me Peedee Andy, especially since I've been nice to you. I might start making fun of your post count or rating.

    isn't it a [poop]load of pieces running around inside your head, so it's an athletics sport right?


    Actually, in mine it's more like they're jogwalking (okay, more like they're waiting at a bus station).

    I can't stand you?! I don't even know you. I'm a pretty calm dude, not much rattles me. I certainly wouldn't say I can't stand you. You said something about me campaigning to have chess made a synonym for tiddlywinks or something like that. For that I would consider you a bit odd but I have no hatred for you.
