Please place a limit on making draw offers.

    Why is it annoying? It makes no difference, just keep playing. I don't understand, you can just ignore them completely.

    Because that's what she does. Now she'll insult me based on my rating.

    had a numbnut offer me a draw every move after he dropped a piece, then wrote garbage notes after the game and blocked me!

    Lol

            I was offered a draw the other day in an "online" game, once upon me taking my opponent's last rook, leaving only his King and two pawns against my rook and three pawns, promoting one of which was a simple task and then again once I had promoted a pawn to Queen and his last pawn was gone. Even if I had blundered once, I was still virtually certain to win. He may have had in mind a possible stalemate, for which I was carefully watching out. He may have hoped that I would accidentally click on "accept", instead of "no draw". Whatever his reasons, I was left feeling somewhat annoyed.

    I mostly play on my iPad and the draw offers pop up and block you from moving until you make a selection

    " My opponent began offering a draw nearly every move, which was very annoying."

    I never offer a draw. Instead I try to repeat the position 3 times, or claim a draw after 50 moves and there were no pawn moves or captures.

    It's not ethical to repeatedly ask for a draw and it's even worse to ask for a draw when the opponent has winning chances.

    The solution is just block that opponent.

    Just make a move, and the draw offer goes away.

    CM DavidReti, by playing a move the draw offer gets instantly rejected, so why do you care? Just ignore it.

    There should be no limit, it is psychological warfare.

    Like "notmtwain" said, no wonder I wanted a draw!

    "insomnian" is also right, I was trying to achieve a 3 repetition draw, in the middle of all those meaningless rook moves.

    Imo, it is your kind of behaviour that is very annoying, to continue a dead drawn game forever, maybe hoping that I would resign or abandon the game or disconnect somehow...

    I know you were probably expecting to win in the begining given the huge rating difference and that, because of that, you were/are pissed, but some fair play from you instead of accusations would be more appreciated...

    There is a slight chance that he wanted to play on because he was completely winning after move 58 or so...

    No?

     


    That said, there is no rule for the frequency of draw offers- e.g. the official FIDE rules leave it under the arbiter's discretion.

    I suggest it would be more accurate to call it being childish.

    This is interesting: "dividendinvestor closed their own account on Jan 5, 2017"

    Well, yeah, most of that 3 vs 2 endgame was a win for black. Maybe if you weren't so busy being rude offering multiple draws you'd stop to evaluate the position properly.
