    Can't castle into, out of, or thru check.

    Dumb rule. My king got away, deal with it.

    Lots of rules feel unfair. Taxing death, for example. Deal with it.

    It is interesting that a rule designed to aid in King safety can't be used in a situation of immediate need. But them's the rules.

    Same reason my you can't use the two space pawn move to avoid a pawn attacking the first square.

    Casting was allowed to speed up the game just as the two space initial pawn move was allowed.

    Why should I deal with it, it wasn't my game.

    Your opponent has to obey the same rule, so perhaps it's not so unfair.

    Good rule. Your king got stuck, deal with it.
