Does this happen a lot?

I have played 1,000 games and no one has said anything bad to me. My opponents who chat have been polite or funny.  If they have nothing good to say, they just say nothing. It's easy. 

Maybe because at my rating level anyone can look at my moves and tell I'm not using any kind of engine?  lol

Do you resign often. The thing I get the most hate for is not resigning in lost positions, bit ironically enough the complainers often end up losing the position. Another thing that keeps some people up at night is if you win and decline a rematch.

I told this to my friend in real life. He's a great person and really fun when you get to know him in real life, but on chess.com he insults the c*** out of his opponents, says racist stuff, makes fun of people's countries, and calls them idiots and losers. I just hope none of the people he insulted took it seriously (I know I could have)

Let internet be a free place. Many people use it to vent because they have an unpleasant life. A few nasty words on a screen are just a few bad pixels. I use focus mode, and if I get a bad comment on my profile I delete and move on. But let people vent as long as they're not hurting anybody.

I used to be strongly against verbal abuse but after reading this thread my opinion is beggining to change.
