Just as in an over-the-board chess e-chess requires patience, and deference for one's opponent. Rude disturbances in over-the-board chess like unnecessary motion, as well as, rude chat in in e-chess lowers the moral and ethical character of the chess player.  Furthermore,  immediately taking unfair advantage of your opponent without fair consideration, and even discussion may win you the game, but will not win you the respect of your chess peers.  Lastly,  not losing graciously is a stain on one's character, and contributes to one's reputation.
