i agree its unfair you get zeros points just because the king couldn't move

well good luck on changing the rules of chess

Or understanding them... Draws are 0.5 points, not 0.

Why am I blocked Keifer?

Similar to what @EndgameEnthusiast2357 said, this is not a won position for white. I don't care what you say.

You aren't now.

That's odd, I don't remember ever blocking you.

The main misconception with stalemate being a win is that the stalemating side is the one winning. The stalemating side could literally have a lone king, which is insufficient mating material, so why should stalemate be a win when checkmate isn't even possible? Not to mention the endgame would become a joke as a side with a pawn, or even just a king and knight could win!
