    Is there anything more annoying then someone who stops playing one turn before checkmate?

    non subs can only play 6 at a time ... this sort of behaviour will affect them greatly ...

    by you are a sub ... you can just ignore this game now ... putting it in you bag of wins ... and get on with new games ...

    get over it ...

    and yes there is worse ... when you are losing in a tournament game ... but continue for an extra move or two ... then you opponent gets themself timed out ...

    Can't comment on games "in progress".

    Your opponent's move was made about 30 minutes after your post. I'm curious; when was your last move before that?

    I"m not sure what this means, "without interruption..." How long was it since your opponent's last move and your post about the delay? What is the time control for the game? Without knowing at least that much, it's hard to judge whether your opponent was trying to annoy you or not.

    I used to work with a guy, who whenever someone would say "is there anything worse than XYZ ...", he'd say "Yeah, XYZ and being on fire"

    What if XYZ is being on fire?
