Is it worth trying to discuss Chess on here anymore?

Vlad, by worrying about trolls, you are drawing them in.

Ofc Chess is worth discussing. Anything else seems irrelevant.

Let's restart the discussion. When will the Chess Virus epidemic ends? Will GM Trump retain US Chess Federation Leadership?

GM Chump will claim it was a "perfect game" and then the arbiter will release a score sheet he himself redacted which shows upwards of... a dozen legal moves were made. "Wow, a dozen is impressive" remark his fans.

GM Chump challenges anyone to Chess Wrestling! His wrestler partner is the same person he used against McMahon.

I'm not buying it.

I was surprised at the level of idiocracy (basic social media nonsense) in these forums when I joined last month. 

 

I'm 100% disabled due to spine injury,  so playing a word game in a "non topic" thread gets my brain thinking about vocabulary. But still,  I found this an odd place to be playing a word game; and even that thread has people talking back and forth rather than staying on topic. 

My biggest question to chess.com is, why is there even a place for non chess related questions in the forum section? Save that for Facebook or other social media sights that cater to such queries. 

I would prefer this to be a chess forum, period. If people want to be friends and strike up a non topic communication in a questions's comment area,  they have the option to be "Friends" and take their conversation to their private account areas. 

Just my thoughts. I really was surprised at the lack of respect and forum moderation when I first joined.
