Was (Player) a good sport?

With Ekaterina Ivanova...

Many times in a long play game, people repeatedly offer me a draw in a dead lost position. That's a sign of bad sportsmanship, because the window asking to accept / refuse pops up all the time. So they do it just to annoy me, I guess. After the game I give them thumbs down and block them.

Are there any consequences to "good sport" or "bad sport"?

If there are then I think it is one of the most stupid things to intorduce.

For me the worst behaviour is declining a second game when you won the first, yet it is such a common behaviour and lots of people genuinely don't see anything wrong with it.

I don't want to keep going if it is just a gimmick.

(btw..what are points?)

To me getting mad about a game declined is like the people who think you can't walk away a winner from a poker table but you have some sort of obligation to let them get back their money.

Don't understand the purpose of this feature unless the bad sports get suspended. Do they?

And then of course it would stink because it's uncorroborated testimony.

I think they get lumped with other similar bad sports when it comes to being paired for a match

A happy player of chess is worth the adventurous common game, which displeases many or all, or none or nothing, this pleases rummaging through remnants or creating new chances and choices, sharing the witless or wilful rubbing or traction or subtraction of ideas, ideals in chess games, for fun, nonetheless, annotation celebrates the game, so add ons help a good game, maybe introduce more, chatting, converse options, whichever you guys or gals like, i just play online for the fun sake, =funs' sake, as a cure of myself, forget

I beg to strongly disagree, but i respect your opinion. And,  I don't get mad (I am almost 48 and something trivial like this will not make me mad). I just don't like this behaviour.

Anyway,  the point I was trying to make is that "Bad Sport" is subjective. What might be "bad sport" for one is perfectly acceptable for another.

I wonder whether someone from Chess.com can tell us whether there are any consequences. (I don't use this feature whether I like the behaviour or not)

So you strongly disagree...with respect (whatever that may mean).
