    hahaha This thread became a troll thread. Might as well say "KMA" to your opponent. At least your not ignoring your opponent. Laughing

    "People reveal their character in their actions". I think this quote is from Taoism, but it's profoundly true. "Tao te Ching" is a useful book for chess players...

    I read that one, and another which applies the Tao and Te to warfare.

    Does taoism mention gg? If so, I might have to check it out.

    Confucianism probably mentions "GG" somewhere; it is Taoism for the man or lady of society.

    I don not consider "GG" to be a sign of respect. It' is just internet slang to me.

    I would rather get a comment like: "Nicely played!", "Good luck!", or "Good job."

    That would be a compliment. The "gg" thing is just really impersonal.

    But didn't you just tell the kid asking about OTB that you prefer the impersonal online chess?

    Make up your mind, if any!

    I would try not to take it too personally if I found myself having similar thoughts.
