I love Chess.com. If you ask for help, everyone will do what they can to help, if you make some dumbass complaint, they will beat you down.
Just like a good father.
OOPS Edit: I didn't mean to say a good father beats his kids.
I assume you meant it metaphorically
My father always beat me. He'd put me over his knee and use his belt, a hazel stick (broke multiple) or his hand.
Eventually this didn't work anymore and it was the other way around. Except I didn't use those kids toys.
No! You're fine, bro. It's helping either way. This is where the mods are, IMHO, greatly confused because they were instructed by some upper authority that ALL trolling is bad. When in fact it's not.
Now OP can look through this thread and say, "Boy oh Boy! I sure did get trolled! I wonder why? OH. I see now. Perhaps I should be more careful with the topic of discussion next time, and maybe google the question first, THEN I can ask unbiased questions later if I reasonable feel my question justifies anything. If I still get trolled at least I can provide an explanation to show how my question was generated in the first place."
People who don't like silly losses on time should play to sensible time limits.
What if you have a guaranteed victory with your pawns and the enemy runs his own time out?
