    A while back, an unsolicited game with 1. e4 appeared in my inbox from a provisionally-rated player. Why he chose me, I don't know, but as it was the weekend, I thought "whatever" and replied with 1....c5. His reply, 2. Bb4 had me rather stumped. What the **** was he playing at? While I pondered this (all of 3 minutes) I received no fewer than FOUR pm's from this guy, the first of which said "If you don't move soon, I am going." My instinct was to delete the game, but my better nature prevailed and I continued. After every move, he messaged me (not in the message panel, but a pm) urging me "faster! faster!" &c., like some bored girl in a 1970's grumble-flick. After the seventh move, and the umpteenth message of this type, I lost patience and messaged him: "OK, if I play faster, will you play any better?" "Sure!" came a message by return. After the game was over (very soon!) he started a rematch, which I deleted immediately. Then I received a pm saying: "If you are humman bieng [sic] you play me again. Youll [sic] see."

    O tempora, o mores!!

    Have a look at this game if you all want a damnably good laugh!

    Does your rating go up or down when you win.
    my rating was 1231 and I won 2 games and it went down
    to 1209. I thought a higher score was better ???
    Please if someone can explain. thanks in advance.

    When you still have a provisional rating, that is when you not have 20 rated games played (now you have exactly 20 rated games and one unrated), the rating may seem having an erratic behaviour.
    But from now on (as your rating is no longer provisional) you will gain rating points at every win and lose points in every loss in your rated games.

    This is possibly one of the most amusing threads that I have read in the help forum. 🙂

    I totally agree. If you can't even say Hi, why not just play a machine.

    I'm only talking about the initial greeting, it's nice if at least they greet you at the beginning of the game.

    After that, if they want to chat, then it's fine by me, it's fine also if they don't and I won't initiate a conversation.
    Some people come here just to play chess, not to interact with others.

    If i want a real person to play chess with me, I won't sign in on internet.

    You cannot expect a reply from everyone. But if you do get a reply, it should be polite.

    I'm here to play chess too, not to chat. However I expect players to acknowledge me as I acknowledge them. In other words, we're not playing computers on here. There is chess software out there for those who don't want to play real people.
