I'm confused. Should I shut up? Because I wasn't saying anything. And what about you? Should you shut up? Because you weren't saying anything either. So why should you shut up?

I have played against thousands of chess players on the internet, rarely talking to any of them.

I’ll be the first to say it. You all can have your chess.

Definitely not the first. Chess.com is a graveyard of posts like these.

Perhaps we need more positivity. Never forget.

I like TMNT!

And how come nobody resigns nowadays? Must be an online thing because in person to person, you don’t play out 70+ moves smh. There’s a reason why I promoted a rook.

I resign, always. But if one wants to continue to the end, what’s the problem ? I don’t understand where the scandal is.

Just to say, I always promote to Rook to avoid stalemate; yet once, perhaps due to exhaustion, or pressure, or imbecility, I don’t know, it happened that I could not to checkmate: K+R vs K, I almost reached 50 moves !   If my opponent forced me to draw, I would have well deserved it.

If he wants, one has every right to continue the game until its conclusion ( to test your ability to conclude under stress, to try to win by flagging, or hoping for a blunder, doesn’t matter ):  it’s the Regulation, the only Sacred Rules of Chess that everyone must respect.

Unless one does so with clear provocative intent, not resigning is not offensive. Maybe it’s not very stylish, but it’s fully legitimate.

My opinion, as always.
