please check this game out
and tell me whether it is supposed to be a draw or whether casper has
won. It has always been my understanding of chess that if it is stale
mate then it is a draw yet my only option now is to retire as a draw
offer has been rejected!!!!

You are right, this is a draw. I will look into why the system as not
recognised it as such as soon as possible.

histerically because he was so sure he was going to beat me?

I have to disappoint you. That game was not finished because of the
en passant rule
Your opponent moved P h7-h5
So there was one possible move for you: P g5xh6.
RHP was right to continue the game.
I guess you both haven't been aware of that rule.
