Insulting your opponent?

Chase_The_Knight
Why do some people on here feel it’s ok to insult their opponents? Yesterday I was called an “ignorant twat” for missing a move and I eventually lost the game(which, to be fair, I was already losing earlier on). Then my opponent just laughed at me. Now refusing to give me a rematch. It’s not the first time it happens. What do you people who behave like this get from this behaviour? I’m stunned by the level of immaturity.

Hahaha. “Ignorant Twat”. Thats a good one.

I remember some guy once told me, “Lets begin your lesson”. I ended up winning 😂😂

That sounds a very English form of insult. The best response is "I bite my thumb at you sir"

You might also consider calling him a "cloth-eared bint" (worked for Basil Fawlty).

I'm getting this for simply posting:

The funny thing to me is that the opponent whose game these people are mocking has about the same rating that he does. Mocking your opponent is basically mocking yourself.

It seemed to work for me. Where are you trying to post it?

I was trying to post it here.  I received the message the first 2 times i tried to post.  It worked the third time.

Any chance you had posted that exact message somewhere else recently?
