Hm, this thread seems to have become a Question of Honors Math(s)...
Ok, sorry, I'm partly to blame for that. Let's get back on track.
To quit, or not to quit. That is the question. ????
I think if a player chooses to resign or doesn't choose to resign it should be up to that player. When I go into a game I believe my opponent has the right to play until checkmate even if their position is hopelessly lost. What annoys me is when they play at one pace until they realize they are in a seemingly hopeless situation and then they slow down to one move every 3 days. I don't believe in dragging out a game if it is lost. If you are going to continue the game, continue it at a reasonable pace. If you want to try something to see how it works out, then go ahead and try it, but if you are just dragging it out unnecessarily hoping I will get tired of waiting for you to move and either resign myself or forget about the game and let it time out I feel that is bad sportsmanship.
