Toxicity in chess.com

sakissfougaristra

An hour ago i played a game against on erandom opponent where i think was one of the best king's indian defences that i have played( do not judge me from me other games i am quite weak). I made one blunder i think and i won. My opponent did not resign he let the time run out. During the game i made one blunder and my moves most of the times were not the best. After the game my oppomnent messaged me he accused me of being a cheater and told me to go f***k myself. Why do people do this? Why so angry for a loss? It truly disappoints me that some people are so toxic.

I'm sorry to hear about your experience. I have also been insulted by a number of players when I win. So what I do is report them to admin and request for disciplinary action to be taken. When reporting, I usually specify exactly what the offending player says so that admin knows precisely what the nature of the offence is. Sometimes I send a message to the player informing them that I have reported them. Perhaps that would make them feel remorseful. In rare cases, I simply ignore and block such abusive players.

Yeah but it was quite disturbing. I was really happy for my win and then he started insulting me

I had someone who (after a bullet game, of all game modes) said:

"Gaaarrrbage player. Learn to play chess like a real man. f.a.g.g.ot"

it made my day, I laughed so hard.

 I would hope that almost any level of player would see things like 14... Bxg4 - no computer assistance needed. Some players are simply not good enough to be a judge of whether or not there is cheating involved.

Things happen. I just wrote a black guy in a site mentioning how he can say the N word and I cannot. I meant no harm but the horrendous response I was given back compelled me to block him. How can we ever get things accomplished when people choose to be violent?

How can anything be accomplished by blocking people who aren't violent? 🤔

I always have the chat off.

Group of 100 persons who are not violent.
Group of 20 persons who are violent.

 

One in the group of 20 continues being violent. Conclusion, how can there be peace when the violence continues? Blocking is a side-line.

One in the group of 100 being blocked does not address the continuance of violence.

 

Something like this..........anyway, I know the intent and unblocking now. The blocking came about from being part of a group effort making untoward comments directed at myself. The memory has dwindled.
