Is bullet indecent?
Yes, of course it is, absolutely indecent!
You know who also likes to play bullet chess? That's right, the devil. :P
There's no honor in the game.
I've played over 100 opponents who run around the board in 1 min games if they're losing, and believe they've legitmately won if they win on time. They take every win to their name.. if they're up one piece they feel they've won the game.. even if you win on time, but if your up every piece on the board and they run around and win they beat you.. or get one cheapo capture that ruins your attack.
No offense meant, but why waste your time with speed Chess? I know, some like the quick action but your complaints seem to show that it is not for you. Not for me either. I`ve gone the other direction and my only rated Chess these days is USCF Correspondence events; it suits my temperment much better and nerves being that I`m 66.

...Correspondence events; it suits my temperment much better...
I think speed chess suits the temperament of some people and slower chess, other people. It's subjective, so can't be said to be a waste of time. (In point of fact, technically, it's a gain of time - playing speed chess).
When it comes to blitz and bullet, winning on time is just as valid as checkmating.
Perhaps you might want to consider more traditional-like time controls. You will find yourself in many more games where the win is earned through other means.
BTW, chess is very respected. I think the issue is that many blitz players don't actually respect or understand chess. They just like to push pieces around the board.
I agree 100%. I see that in my own Chess club. Most of them are the lower rated players. A connection, perhaps?
