This entire aborting/resignation/quitting thing is really getting old! If you can't play an entire game without QUITTING then stop playing chess! I have lost many games and I knew I was going to loose before the end of the game. Did I quit hell no. I'm a firm believer in"Even when you loose you learn something"!

 

Resigning is not quitting, it's respect to you as a player that you have beat them. Be glad and go to the next game.

this is all very stupid and people should just stop responding because players of all levels resign and always will and if you are ahead than you did earn it. and if you think people should not be allowed to do it than you are extremely stupid and should just stop playing chess. because i have seen 1800' s 1700's 1600's1500's and every one along the spectrum resign because it is just nice for your opponent to not waste more of your time. now i recommend that you stop talking about this because you sound more stupid than president trump and nobody wants to be that stupid.

If aborted games are an issue for many, I recommend playing on lichess.org instead. They have stronger anti-cheating measures and more active players. And sidenote to mr.devillish apples, trump obviously doesn't say stupid things if he got elected president of the United States.
Finally, I think you should never resign and always play the game until the end.

I don't like abort - Not here, not anywhere. That said, there are penalties in place for it here on Chess.com but yes: Lichess and some other networks punish it more severely. Let's be honest, though: Anyone aborting games to avoid playing black or against a higher rated opponent isn't too much of a threat to anyone anyway.

It's funny that people from the States call Trump stupid, well, he's your President, kind of represents you, so indirectly you are sorta making yourselves look stupid. Not to mention that all those who voted for him, (I am expecting it's the majority), are also being labelled as stupid.

 

Stupid.

I'm not American, but I know this anyway. Trump didn't win by majority votes among the general population. He got a higher number of electoral votes. I guess that shows that the people's opinions means jack**** in the US.

To people who believe that game abandoning players should be punished: You are either stubborn idiots or naive people. 

I live in Australia, and my internet connection has never failed me to date here. Not once have I ever been forced to abandon because of bad internet. However, when I went on a holiday a few months ago, the internet was horrid. I lost about ten won positions due to rubbish internet, and I even remember losing in a position where I had a mate in one because of the internet. I could only sit and stare helplessly at the screen as my timer ticked away. 

Since then I have become more empathetic to people who experience this away. In most cases, they may have been forced to abandon because of a lost connection.

However, I do despise people who refuse to play on and wait for the game to abandon or their time to run out simply because they are fools who have a hurt ego.

Yes: This is precisely the conclusion an educated, intelligent, worldly person such as yourself can make. wink.png

On the voting thing; If the electoral college wasn't in place then 6-7 major cities in the U.S. would ever vote. City size compared to some states is vastly outnumbered.

Loosing a game to bad internet is something out of your control, That I can understand.But when you take someones Queen and the other person quits immediately even if they still have a majority of pieces is stupid to me!

Since playing to the end is "stupid" (by some people) I suppose I'll be stupid and not a quitter!
