    I have recently begun playing on the live chess site.  I'm sure this has been covered many times, but please show some class.  If you are lost, resign and say good game.  I'm sick of having a won position and then having to wait for minutes after you sign off.  We are here to play chess - when you have been outplayed, admit it and resign.  Chess shoud be a gentleman's/gentlewoman's game.  Act like an adult.

    I have recently begun trolling on the forums. I'm sure this has been covered many times, but please show some class. If your opponent is lost and wants to play on or make you wait just say good game. I'm sick of having lost positions and then my opponent complaining about having to wait for minutes after I sign off. We are here to enjoy winning- when I have been outplayed I admit it by logging off. Chess is free. Adults act like jerks, too.

    Adults are self-absorbed bores; I'd much rather act like this child: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUJIgkPoiBg&feature=player_embedded

    Some thoughts-
    Its not over till its over/ Never say die/ Patience is a virtue/ What if you suddenly died/ If sick, get well soon/ Games are like busses: there's always another one just round the corner (but probably not where you hale from)/ Noble sentiments butter no parsnips/ Resign your own game - that'll fox them/ Who gives a toss anyway/ Don't be so bossy/ and finally, with all that spare time, you might at least proof-read your outraged post!

    The OP can use this advice how he pleases. But as he's a gentleman he probably wont.

    Smrex13 do you think attempting to manipulate your adversaries into resigning so that you can earn a victory a little faster is a demonstration of class?
