    Is it possible to filter out people who block chat in live chess?  I feel very uncomfortable when I cannot type "gg" and other bits of chit chat.

    You might want to brace yourself for an onslaught of abuse, given all the abuse I took when I said essentially the same thing:

    I have disabled chat based on my experiences when I used to previously play - on ICC.  I ran into so many abusive internet Rambos that made we wish I could reach through cyber space and strangle their little pencil necks.  When I got back to chess, I made the decision that I am here not to socialize but to learn and play chess.  If I want to socialize, I'll go to a party.  I do notice that many players abort when they apparently discover that chat has been disabled.  I guess the endless texting that I witness supports the notion that people these days have an inordinate need to communicate.  If I want to do that, I'll partake of one of my other hobbies - amateur radio.  Do you chat when you play over the board in tournaments?  I'm interested in concentrating on my game and not on what some anonymous person with a need to chat has to say.  I have sent messages after a game - both complimentary and questioning my opponents heritage when they, for example, let their clock run out for 20 minutes.  The other day, I sent a message to a chap who offered me a draw when I had a mouse mis function causing me to drop my queen two squares short of its intended target.  

    As long as we are discussing the chatty inhabitants of this website, I must say that I find it amazing during a live TV presentation, that some just cannot keep their keyboards quiet and seemingly feel the need to make constant inane chatter rather than listening carefully to what is being said.  

    BTW, I am a very social being, but not when I'm trying to play chess.  I make too many stupid moves as it is when I'm concentrating and I'm sure I won't improve by chatting with my opponent(s).

    I find it annoying.. Yes but I still play people even if they disable chat.. I see where they come from and maybe are just tired of abuse

    Some people might have difficulties with foreign languages,so disabling the chat might be an easy way to solve that issue

    If you disable chat it's because you're getting ready to do something cowardly like running after the first match and you don't want to hear the truth--you're a coward!

    Perfect example of why chat gets disabled ! Smile
