It has been 15 years sense I actively played. Just started playing again and have been playing here or a few weeks, when did it become never surrender chess. I was always taught from a very early age that surrendering was to show respect to your opponent and was never a bad thing. I am not talking about being down an exchange or a piece but when you are beat just say GOOD GAME and surrender. Don't wait the 2 or 3 days and let time run out just to be a jerk or same thing in a tournament when you have lost surrender. Show respect to the better player and learn from them. I always try to play better players because that is how I learn look at my game history and can see I am not a great player but I love the challenge. I always show respect to my opponent and that is the way chess should be.
Yes, most people here agree that you should resign in a completely hopeless position. But about the "GOOD GAME" part... you should definitely check a few of the threads here that are related to the topic. They shouldn't be too hard to find.
"completely hopeless" can mean different things to different folks, mostly based on the level of the player, so that has to be allowed for, but in general I will second macer75's post.
