Debate: What to call "Online Chess"...

motherinlaw

In divorce law, the "corespondent" is the mistress or lover of the unfaithful spouse.  Might be quite appropos for many of us--- depends on the number of hours/day spent playing chess and posting brilliant, informative, relevant and supremely witty comments in forums ... like this forum ........  hmm.........

Thanks, motherinlaw, but the astute reader will surely see that "co-respondent" is spelled with only one "r"...

How about "slow chess", since you have days to make a move; or perhaps "untimed chess".

Has anyone suggested "2-D Chess?"  If not, perhaps it's because you all have better judgment than do I.

Anyway, my vote is for Daily Chess. Correspondence Chess probably sounds cool to those old enough to remember using the telegragraph.

You youngens make a big deal over nothing, and want to make everything sound like a playstation game. :p   Just KIdddingggggggggggggg :)

CORRESPONDENCE CHESS

It is what it is.  Don't call it something cute. 

It is a rook!  Not a castle!

It is a knight!  Not a horsey!

It is Correspondence Chess!

Except that, unlike correspondence chess , replies can be virtually instantaneous 24/7

Compudence chess.  Half computer half correspondence.  Sounds better than Corruponter.
