    There is nothing we can do about players that want to drag it out...I've done so myself when the person has said nice game before it is actually over. Dislike very much someone rubbing in a victory that way...but nothing I can do about it, except make him wait for it as long as I can without timing out which I don't do often. 😉

    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.
    Hm... on the one hand, yes, that is juvenile. On rhe other hand, isn't it even more small-minded to get worked up about it enough to conplain in a public forum?

    Somebody else has raised the subject, and it's something which interests me within the context of the website, and so I am expressing an opinion. You imply that anybody who does so is by necessity getting 'worked up' about any given subject, and I would disagree with you. Your question asks whether anybody who expresses an opinion about something is being small - minded, and I don't think that they are.

    This post comes to you in an un worked - up spirit.

    N. My remark was about the general attitude in this thread, and about the several people who complain about them. It wasn't about you personally; your post was merely the point at which I joined in.
