That's because the competitive chess community is full of nerds who are arrogant and judgmental perfectionists with over-inflated egos bragging about their extremely impressive ratings in hyper-masculine fashion like a chest thumping gorilla.

In general, there are no nerds because chess is not about IQ or something like that. 
It's a myth.
Chess is about work and skill. If you want to be successful at chess, you need to hate people.

And that's normal because we're hateful animals. Maybe.

 I agree with this up to the hyper masculine part.

It's not "toxicity", but I have started blocking people who ask me to "play quicker" or however else they choose to phrase it.

You can pick a lower clock time or resign. 

I can take all the abuse under the sun but petty things like that irk me.
