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".

1. Nothing

2. Nothing. 

3. Nothing.

4. Nothing.

5. Nothing.

6. Nothing.

7. Nothing.

8. Nothing.

9. hi thanx

10.Nothing.

11.Nothing.

12. hi, you too

13. thx same to u

14. nothing

15. nothing

16. thx u2

17. Nothing.

18. nothing

19. nothing

20. nothing

21. nothing

22. nothing

 

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!
