Well I was just playing a 5 day game and I was crushing the guy. Why don't people just resign? it would make my life so much easier (Chess life)
I don't know what's more ridiculous: the question, or the fact that people just keep asking it!? If you don't want to wait for your opponent, go play solitaire.
senseless question, nobody likes to lose; some people are calm, some are choleric; if you want to get rid of it, play shorter time controls
They've lost that lovin feeling.
I sympathize with players who are frustrated by stubborn opponents who play on in hopeless positions. But they have that right. You know that going in. To expect the other guy to throw in the towel when you think he should is unrealistic. Besides, he may not realize or believe he's losing. What was it Donald Byrne said after the so-called 'Game of the Century'? Something like most of the spectators thought he had a won game right when he resigned.
Anyway, let's not forget about Kasparov. Of course he's not competing now, but he was pretty well known to be somewhat of a sore-loser, on the rare occasions when he did lose. If the top-gun is kind of a bad sport, what kind of an example did he set? But to be fair, he's just a human being, and emotions are part of the human condition and quite understandable, and even predictable, in any kind of competition. Players are gonna' stall for a variety of reasons, including bad sportsmanship and downright nastiness...... Might as well get used to it.
