Isn't opening 1.e4 a sign of disrespect?

    I faced somebody who had the rudeness to play e4 against me. I said that is a stupid move take it back. They replied it gives control of the centre. Activates my kings bishop which will enable me to castle and even move my queen to take advantage of any mistakes you might make. I said yes that's all true but pawns can't move three squares in one go and the white pieces move first.

    You have a problem with e4? Yes it may be less advantageous, but what about it? Many players start out by playing e4, and e4 reasonably strong. Saying people playing e4 are disrespectful is like saying their style is disrespectful. Sure players won't take the advantage but what if they like coming from behind, or like more tactical games? Are people not allowed to play what they're comfortable with? Saying I can't play e4 is the same as saying I can't play the french defense. It is our style and a part of us. Sure it may make it easier for black to equalize but in all chess games after the first moves doesn't it all equalize if they are players of equal strength? Not everybody is a positional player either. Don't judge. And you can't say fischer is a genius... sure he was talented and things might have come easy to him. But everybody can be a genius if they apply themselves.  "Geniuses are made, not born" -Laszlo Polgar

    It's not OK to be disrespectful! personally, I just block e4 players so I don't get bothered again.

    If you don't like 1. d4, start with 1. a4! Not only does it show your good manners, it opens the way for the rook to enter the game, and develops a pawn.

    one time i started 1.b3 and my opponent laughed so hard that he wasted 2 minutes on his clock and lost the game on time because it was a 5 minute blitz game.

    I once fell to the temptation of playing e4. Oh, what a terrible decision that was... I quickly fell into a deep depression, baffled by my own lack of morals. It left deep scars in my soul and a part of me died... I can no longer find joy in life and I don't think I will ever have that back... Be warned, brethren. Do not succumb to such a horrid display of humanity's foulest sins!
