    People have been known to play up to 2000 games at a time without losing a single game to timeout. After all, you can only make one move in any game, then you have to wait for your opponent. A lot of tournament games allow 7 days per move, what are we frequent-movers going to do in the meantime? Our other games, that's what.

    Blitz isn't an option for everyone, real life intervenes and so do timezone differences.

    If your opponent is holding you up, that's got nothing to do with how many games he's playing.

    When it comes to ridiculous (that's the correct spelling) 25 exclamation marks in a two-line post could fit the description.

    Can't DaleP express annoyance with high-volume users without being told to "shut up"?

    Not really, they pay for the right to play as many games as they wish... if he only has 6 game and is playing someone who is playing 100+ and taking their time with the game that's his fault for agreeing a game with time controls he wasn't comfortable with, not the other players fault for playing slowly.

    I agree, but none of that deserves rudeness.

    You are right! More than three or four games at one time is absurd. It makes no sense and there is no reason to allow it. Let me be among the first to "sign" your petition.

    END THE MADNESS!

    At least he's contributing something, even if it's just some entertainment in the forum.
