I play chess for fun. Do not misunderstand me, I like winning more than losing. However, there are ways to win & lose with class & most importantly, honor. Class & honor are too often found in short supply among a great deal of the players on chess.com. Chess is a game of one person's mind overcoming another person's mental capacities. It is not a pugilistic endeavor or recreation, except in an imaginary realm of one's mind. So people who believe while playing chess that they should behave & chatter like thugs, are not only idiots, they are additionally devoid of class & as a result of their obnoxious actions only reinforce the image that is apparent to everyone; you are a pawn in a world kings, queens & knights, & you will always remain that way. -------------> Always remember this important concept; A Pyrrhic victory (/ˈpɪrɪk/) is a victory with such a devastating cost that it carries the implication that another such victory will ultimately lead to defeat. Someone who wins a "Pyrrhic victory" has been victorious in some way; however, the heavy toll or the detrimental consequences negates any sense of achievement or profit. Napoleon had his Waterloo, & General Custer found hubris at Little Big Horn. An offhanded negative comment today may one day come back to haunt you, & you will find out the true definition of humility among your peers.
