Aren't these type of opponents literally the most annoying? (Lichess)

Like I blundered my queen during the end of the middle game and it just went downhill, so as usual I tried to just fill the rest of the game up with some friendly banter/chat...

Especially when people are like "just resign man" or "you should just resign" ..... God those are the worst. Except one time some guy said that and I stuck it out and he blundered a couple times and I was winning and then he was like "lololol I suck" so at least he was able to look at himself and what he said and laugh at how badly it backfired... I still lost purely on time though.

But the game from the picture was from Lichess... Ugh. I try not to let it get to me especially during the game but I don't understand that mindset.. like why not make it fun for both players?

Here's what I would have said: "Yeah you did blunder, but that's ok man it happens to the best of us. Just keep playing your best you never know how a game will turn out"

?? Thanks for the advice... Although I see stuff about Lichess all the time on these forums... Not sure how you could advertise for a free chess service. Also I'm venting about the attitude of one of their players... I guess nothing screams advertisment like "look how much of a jerk these Lichess players are!! Everyone! Let's goto Lichess instead of chess.com!!!"

If anyone other than some chat bot thinks I'm advertising then Idk what to say to that person. I pay the highest subscription monthly for chess.com and use Lichess too. Not sure how people would see this as an advertisement but 🤷

I much prefer just turning chat off. I don't have lichess, but I do that on here, and it avoids these scenarios.

What you are doing is ABSOLUTELY WRONG. LIKE 1/10 STARS MAN, I’M SERIOUS. DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM UNTIL THEY DECIDE TO SPEAK TO YOU. IF THEY’RE MESSAGE IS BAD TURN CHAT OFF AND HANG ON. PROB SOLVED BOI

I have to agree. Turning chat off is usually a good idea. 

I like to chat with people too, but online is different that Real Life (tm). The thing about chatting, even making such a harmless comment as yours, is that you leave yourself open to anything the opponent might say. Once you open the door, just about any response is valid. So don't open the door.

Yep, just turn it off and leave it off. These are the kind of people who steal a chess set piece by piece, wearing each one out of the store as a butt-plug. Btw, can you you turn chat off on that other site?

I like how I got a downvote but the person who agreed with me got an upvotee

People can chat if they want. Who made you the authority on playing online chess? If you don't have anything to say, don't make up stupid sit just so you can post something.
