Have your opponents ever trash talked you?

I’ve never been trashed talked by any of my opponents. The reason why is that I don’t allow chat at all , from anyone before, during, or after a game .

One called me a "US *******" during 4 player chess lol

Another started sending me videos of someone eating flaming hot cheetos after I put a game of them accusing me of cheating, then starting swearing profusely on the forum on a alt account created solely for that purpose

So, I've had my fair share of accusations and "trash talk"

However, the majority of people who chat (99%) are actually nice people that I friend.

Just turn off chat and be done with it.   You might miss a few cool interactions with nice people, but you avoid a whole lot of trashbag personalities trying to get under your skin while concentrating.

I only notice trash talking in blitz. Never in rapid, and I guess there just isn’t time for people to do it in bullet.

If it were "good-natured ribbing", such as one might find in a real chess club OTB, then "trash-talking" would be ok...but as things stand in Chess.com, trash-talking here is anything but good-natured! The problem lies with anonymity; players say what they will without identity exposed. They would almost assuredly NOT negatively trash-talk in person, because of the obvious risk of physical injury to themselves.

People have called me nasty names after losing games

Yes, I have experienced that a couple of times, but not during a game yet.

This is very common in any online gaming unfortunately, although chess is a game for the mind, some use it to throw their anger at others.
This happens in forums as well, with non solicited attacks and aggressions in an environment of peace
I hope for better days and will work on my patience and second chance giving, hoping for a better future.
Maybe things will get better soon and all the trash talking and forum agressiveness will be banned

A time or two, but only in rapid when i tried that. Never in longer games. More than a dozen or so times on the “other” site, all of them in longer time controls.

Well, I do—most of the time. Usually, it's Joe MAMA jokes

I don’t recall being trash talked. One person did write some not nice things in chat when I disconnected but I didn’t see it until after the game ended. No one chats with me in games really. sad.png How do you guys get people to talk to you in games? I want some friends, sometimes.

You all are trash and if we play together and I win, I obviously am the best and if I lose, it's because I am not trying.

One of my recent bullet opponents lost in the opening and requested a rematch. I refused, as I was already playing a new opponent. He responded by spamming my inbox with 50+ profane insults and threats, telling me I was wasting his time by refusing to play a 2-minute game of chess with him .. after he spent more than an hour insulting and threatening me over messages .. lol. He called me a "waste of life" and a "s**t human being" .. btw our game didn't even last more than 10 seconds. I can't imagine how miserable life is for people who take such a simple board game so seriously.
