It's called correspondence chess.

It's even the Wikipedia title for it.

Hmm before you receive your point is this true?

Not everyone is diuranl!  How about "Nocturnal Chess?"

Well AcivilisedGentleman (nice name btw), how about setting up a separate rated Centaur pool for all the engine lovers? For at the moment they only have one place to play here and it's with YOU.

They are in an engine haven now but give them a separate pool and you and all the non engine fans can be in 'more' of a non-engine heaven. :)

...chess_kebabs...I would play chess with you during a solar eclipse...

I can't believe it took 63 pages to come up with it. It seems so obvious in hindsight.

Bait me all you like, I don't think it's necessary for me to point out the folly of your pro-cheater agenda.

chess_kebabs

Can't quote you Grobe on my phone. I wasn't trying to bait you, was joking around. As far as it being a pro-cheater agenda, it's actually the opposite. :)

TheGrobe

Until you succeed in getting the definition of cheating changed, it's a pro-cheating agenda.

chess_kebabs

disagree 100%

You have a very good memory! 

Poor me, I was drinking (wine) and I was feeling a little reglected and I needed a little attention (I'm needy).  I need therapy Smile

Please explain how it is a "pro cheating agenda" if a separate pool here is introduced for engine users"?
