Social experiment UPDATED
Hi folks, how you´re doing.
Being absolutely fed up with childish and unpolite behaviour in live chess (an issue which I really think is a huge problem on this live server, maybe more on this later...) I am just going to try something stupid, just for the sake of stats.
For the next say 50 games of 5/0 blitz I will be saying "Hi, have a nice day" before making any move. Then I will play the game normally as I ususally do. Later I will make a little post with people´s reaction. Anyone willing to bet?
Ok, it didnt reach the number of games I wanted to but still the conclusions maybe relevant (or not). Out of 23 opponents in blitz games (5/0) I got this responses to my : "Hi, have a nice day".
9. hi thanx
12. hi, you too
13. thx same to u
16. thx u2
23. hi, same to u
If I go back to blitz games anyday I might as well continue counting people´s response. Till that happens or we meet on the board, have a nice day everybody!
