    Is there any "referee" or "judge" or "higher authority" here that a player can appeal to get a win, as a result of unsportsmanship play? To adjudicate unsportsmaship play by one of the players? 🙄

    This would be better placed in the "Help" Forum.

    In fact if there has been harrasment you can sent site feedback.
    What exactly would constitute "unsportmanship?
    If it is the old, "They are moving in other games but not in mine": no need to complain.
    Is it the old: "They should resign but don't": no need to complain.

    Can you tell us what you thought was unsportsman like in that game? Whatever game it was. Is that game over? Did that player win because of whatever you thought was unsportsman like?

    You have games going 9 pages deep, must be over a hundred going on at once.
    30 time 9 would be 270 games minus the completions so you must be making a large number of moves per day. I guess it helps where you are playing those 14 and 21 day time rules but how many hours a day do you spend on those games? You must have a lot of time on your hands to play that many at the same time.

    Everyone is afraid?
    How many people are really willing to get beat by a guy with a score as low as mine, after all?

    On the site four months...12,000 moves.

    That's 3,000 a month, maybe 100 moves a day.

    A bad sport is almost guaranteed to show up once a week.

    Smells like engine to me. Playing what amounts to simul at expert level in hundreds of games? In USCF talk, expert OTB is 2000 to 2199.

    I thought it was going to be something awful like being on vacation too long.

    One hundred moves a day is small for a person obsessed with chess.

    But the first thing you offer is engine?
    SMH.
