    I have a priority list when selecting what games I play first.

    1. Clan Games.

    2. Tournament Games/Club Games.

    3. Any matches I may be playing for fun.

    Over 300 games at once are a lot of games. I once had over 600 being played at a time. That was just plain crazy, NEVER AGAIN!!!

    Now that's funny !

    I think I made a similar point in my post. The seriousness or otherwise of it isn't the point either, it's the juvenile and mean - spirited attitude of people who just can't bear to lose a game until they absolutely have to. We win, we lose, and none of us is Bobby Fischer (unless Bobby Fischer is reading this, in which case you are in fact Bobby Fischer). Say 'well done', or 'go f*** yourself' if you want to express something, but resign, and give the person who just beat you some respect.

    Sounds like you take the game more seriously than you say in your profile.

    Don't sweat the little things in life!

    Thanks for the game you just sent - I will certainly do my best.

    Not to hurry you dude, but I played the last move in our game back in early March. I had put your absence down to alien abduction.

    I always had a hard time with British humour!

    Don't take it personally! 😉

    If you were to see me you would change your description, I am far from a stick of celery.

    It ain't about the game, it's about attitudes to the game, and I'm only 'sweating' about it because it's come up in conversation.

    By the way I just checked your public profile, and note that from 10,000 + games you've lost none by timeout, so respect for that! Whoever my diatribe is aimed at, it clearly isn't you....
