    Nope. Shook hands and recorded the result. Then I noticed it.

    Scary that a few people think throwing burning gasoline in someone's face is funny.  Over a chess game.  So did you guys think the whole napalm thing in Vietnam was a hoot?

    He doesn't actually do that Yell

    @joeydvivre - I don't think the napalm would be as effective since I don't see it coming out of the coffee mug as easily and cleanly.  Plus, there is more chance of residue for the forensics to pick up.  Just a thought.

    I'm going to have to call you guys (joey, snakes) on your use of the word "hoot".  Since I was the first to use it in this thread (I believe),  obviously its reuse is strictly forbidden (which includes quoting it as well snakes).  Please follow protocol and replace "hoot" with "flying @#$%" at every occurrence.

    Your cooperation would be appreciated, but, is not expected.

    edit - By the way, don't think you've gone unnoticed scottrf, ditto.

    Thanks Snakes!  I hate to have to be such a killjoy (or whoever), but, a little decorum goes a long way.

    Who wants to go first on this one?  My thoughts were either "Stop, your killin me dude" or just the simple "Harsh."

    You are all missing the point ! !  It is rude to slam your opponent's king down.  If we do our on king, we are just mad at ourselves, which should be understandable considering most people have no idea what sportmanslike conduct is to begin with.  But the king falls down when he is dead, no?  Yes. I still don't do it.

    it isnt rude to knock down your king at all really i get satisfaction out of the fact that  my opponent knocked his/her king down so therefore he isnt being rude to me

    Tipping a refrigerator over a railing is bush league.  You actually demonstrate some talent when you push it out a window, in my experience. Never have done it while "occupied" though. Could be tricky.

    I think that it defidently depends on the attitude. I think that if done politely, it is a nice tradition of chess. When done with abuse toward the chess pieces, I think it is disrespectful.

    If my opponent slams his king down, I did a great job beating him and he can't stand it.  Gawd, I love it !  Do it again, tell me how much better I am than you.  See why I don't do it?

    How many people do this? When resigning, knocking your king down?

    I think it is quite rude if this is done rougly, and disrespectful for the pieces and the game of chess.

    But the thing is, I have yet to meet someone who puts his King down respectfully.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    There was a video where Irina Krush hit her king and it went across the board and she stormed off when losing to Anna Zatonskih...
