What's the matter? If the tournament is 48 hours per move, why should that player move faster, and if he has vacation time left, why shouldn't he use it?
I have the solution to anyone complaining they cant play enough chess because of vacation time.
In fact, in my solution they might even complain of too MUCH chess!
Send me money and I will tell all. I accept like PayPal and other scams like that.
"Giraffe", Palm will do. Thank you.
Hey i will send you some Monopoly Money my friend. Those Gold 500 bills will look nice in your hand. I can sell you a hotel and 3 propeties or better 2 properties. The Boardwald and Park Place. How does that sound?
Great...you are going to mix threads. Thats worse villiany than mixing metaphors. You, my friend, are a wolf in cheap clothing. You can post "Giraffe" until the cows turn blue.
Oh all right, here is your precious palm -
Hey, he is drinking my beer! Ah, I could have known that the beer was in the neighbourhood of the Giraffe.
"Just don't join tournaments" would have been a more concise response. Or "just go to another website" would be another workaround. (hence my question). Fundamentally it probably does come down to: Those who don't care how long games or tournaments drag on, and those who do.
I still don't get it. Are 1d no vacation tournaments really too slow for you? If yes, correspondence chess is not for you. If no, what's your problem?

I fail to understand it myself.
I just play games as they pop up. I don't even know at any time who is on vacation, because I don't look down that far, I just look at the games where its my turn to move. Every once in awhile, a game pops up that I havent seen in perhaps weeks, because the name and the board are no longer familar. Then its like "Oh...he must have taken a long vacation." Who cares?
solutions for those who get pissed off at others who take advantage of things that are perfectly in their right to use:
1) play live tournaments only (chess.com now has live tournaments)2) play in online tournaments with no vacation time allowed (a simple option)3) don't play tournaments at all (it really isn't necessary)4) play tournaments in real life only (maybe make some new chess friends)
