    Yes he did, and then he somewhat undermined his well-written post with those last few words.
    Yes let’s focus on that, because otherwise....

    Yes, and thank you, because I now realize that my rhetorical advice might have been wasted on someone else who whinges about metaphorical ax handles. ;-)

    Is it just me or is there a preponderance of Metallica members in this thread?
    It almost seems like some kind of Marxian proof about accumulation of power.
    J/K -- it seems more like an attempt at mob rule.

    Well I guess you had to say something, and that was it.
    Just letting you know, I was the first one to give that a like.

    That fellow caesar-salad seems to spend a lot of time in this thread. Perhaps he has some kind of axe to grind?.....hmmm....

    Well, there is perhaps a Dostoevskian influence, but I promise I don't even plan to throw even just ax handles.

    I think you mean dostoevsky influences! 😉

    Feel free to discuss.

    "Dostoevskian" would be the adjectival form.

    May I recommend "Underwhelmed" by Sloan? No slight intended by the song's title -- it's just a great song.

    Caesar salad cited the rule in his OP. Clan games cannot be deleted and shall be played to completion.

    The issue is whether resigning drawn or won games violates "game completion" in the spirit and sense intended by the RHP rule caesar salad quoted, or whether, as dive intimated, any resignation regardless of board position or challenge status, legitimately fulfils the criterion of "game completion." Because we do not know what site admin intended when the rule was made, we have to use common sense and search for some benchmark, what "game completion" might be taken to mean.

    I suspect that it did not occur to site admin when the rule was made that anyone would resign a drawn or won game, much less employ this systematically as a clan tactic.

    If resigning games in drawn or won positions does not fulfill the spirit and intention of "game completion," then Metallica has violated a rule. If, on the other hand, dive is right, that any resignation completes a game (and does not merely 'terminate' it), by definition, than Metallica has not violated this rule.

    Until site admin weighs in on this, we are in a quandry.

    Had you of just given me some well meant advice in instead of posting some unsolicited “rhetorical advice” intended to deflect from an on-topic, thought-through post, then perhaps your efforts wouldn’t have felt wasted.

    I nearly agree except that my advice was at least partly well-intended and I thought that "and desist in this metaphorical crying in the street" kind of derailed the rest of the fine post that preceded it.

    It is quite obvious to me now, you have a bone to pick mainly with Metallica. I believe you've been on this site before. Are you a former site member who was banned at one time for something. Your focus seems to be concetrated on Metallica members.

    You are just aligning yourself with the same attempts at humor, or not, in comments veiled in innuendo without merit. Congratulations, you are now a member of the mob.

    Jeez, you seem to be an intelligent fellow. I cannot understand how in the world you cannot see that the stated rule indicates that the games cannot be deleted and an outcome will be occurring in each game.

    A win, a loss, or a draw constitutes an outcome. PERIOD.
    If a game is resigned, one side gets a win and the other gets a loss. An OUTCOME.
    You are splitting hairs attempting to weave your own desires into the solution.
    It does not work that way.
    Because the outcomes are achieved, the action is legal.

    Pretty simply stuff really when you cut through all of the crap being added by others

    Well put.
    I am putting together a response to Moonbus' well written post, even if somewhat off base.
    The key word here being "off base".

    This thread is distracting from the real issue that is pervasive within this clan feature.

    Why is resigning games in decided challenges such a sore spot ?

    This is a sideshow issue that was imagined out of thin air by the few malcontents that have been around for years.
    The main posters in this thread are the newcomers to this issue and are playing into the hands of those who are trying to push this tiresome narrative.

    For some background, have a look at the profile of this individual.
