    Much like playing a musical instrument, you have to start slow to learn to play it right. 

    I think if you check around, you will find that most high rated blitz players are also quite good at longer time controls.

    Couldnt aggree more. Strong long time control players are good at blitz because they have the main lines of everything on the top of theire heads.

    No clocks and chess with a friend or something like that is also fun I guess.

    I prefer the FIDE time 90 minutes + 30 sec increment in real life. I don't have much patience and those slower longer time controls kinda put me off.

    Online I do prefer 2/1, 3/0 or 24 hour pr move. I've really starting liking online chess long games! And barely pay live anymore.

    It is interesting that people are talking about increments as opposed to delay for OTB chess. Online, we see increments, but in the US, most tournaments use delay(at least every one that I have played in), not increment. (The difference being that with delay, you clock time can never INCREASE as is can with increment. A 5 second delay means that after your opponent hits the clock, your clock does not being again for 5 seconds.)

    What about the rest of the world?

    True, over the board is better.
