    + censor [the player that sent the tell]

    after many thousands of such commands no one will be able to talk to you.

    (It's been a few years since I played on ICC, but I recall learning to ignore tells during a game. It is possible to set up the playing environment so as to be unaware of personal tells on FICS, where I use BabasChess; on USCL, where the default software is now an option for ICC--I think that's what they're now calling Dasher; and on playchess.)

    They are immature cretins, but they play everywhere.

    I've seen plenty at FICS, US Chess Live, and playchess, too. However, as I recall, they were a bit worse at ICC. I've heard that they make up the vast majority at sites like Yahoo.

    My last year or two at ICC (2001-2003), I played in the 5 0 pool almost exclusively. Rematches were never an issue, nor was lag, and verbal abuse was less frequent.

    The verbal abuse that has been hardest to forget was when an ambitious FM took issue with me having the gall to comment on a game during the Kramnik-Kasparov WCC match: "I'm an FM, and I have no idea what is going on in this game, how can a mere 1500 have anything to say." He spent the next 15 minutes sending me private tells telling me how stupid I was, while all I said in reply was he should know who he is talking to before rendering such judgements.

    You can remove all talk by setting away message and busy 2.

    I have created an alias that does just that:

    +alias mute multi set busy 2; away is here to play, not to chat.

    You need to activate this setting every time you login by typing "mute", after that anyone who talks to you will get message "Not sent SicilianSmaug is here to play, not to chat"

    In main console you type:

    +alias mute multi set busy 2; away is here to play, not to chat.

    This only needs to be done once

    and then you type

    mute

    This needs to be typed every time you log in.

    after that nobody except admins are able to send you tells.
