Well, when someone displays the icon that they move "all day" and then they don't, and don't claim a time out, then they should get booted. I don't need to look at anything, thank-you. Players that say one thing and do another should not be allowed to tie up other players.
This is a correspondence chess site. If you want your opponents to move more often on your games you have to have shorter time controls on your games. If they don't move in time you win by claiming a timeout.
I'm sorry to say that you tied yourself up in a game with long time controls. No one else tied you up. If your opponent is moving within the time you two agreed upon before the start of the game you have nothing to complain about.
There are many players on this site that have hundreds of games in progress at one time. And they display the "move all day" icon. And they do move all day. But they might not move on our game everyday.
I like faster games myself. And I wish alot of my opponents would move more often. And I know sometimes it can be frustrating. But it is something you are just going to have to learn to deal with on a correspondence chess site.
Otherwise you are just going to have to play chess OTB. Or follow some of the suggestions in the pervious posts of this thread.
