    It's becoming all too common for members to randomly abuse other members after a game.

    Personally I think the players that do that should be banned for violating the T&Cs. What do other people think?

    Removal of offenders happens often. If you have an issue with specific members scroll down and click on Help and Support.

    Yep. Someone said some disrespectful and abusive things to me in a chat window during a game. So I just took a screenshot and sent it in to support and they were banned. The system works. :-)

    I suppose the topic could be seen as a bit of a flame magnet, but that's not my intention. I disagree with xGrendel though.

    I don't think I should suck it up. I think chess.com should cultivate a friendly, respectful atmosphere. If I ran the site I would issue a single warning & ban people for a second reported offense.

    I'm interested in learning how strict chess.com is with sanctioning this type of behaviour and whether 'the membership' think there should be a zero tolerance type purge. I joined the site 2 years ago and things were much better then...

    If that's a good example of "British" sarcasm, then I'm a Dutchman.

    It's only the imbicils and nincompoops that do things like that.  Maybe they think they're being intelligent or something else as misguided.  It's only them and those as idiotic or more idiotic than them that do it.  How people speak to others reflects upon themselves and if it consoles any of you, by not stooping down to their level makes you the better person.
