    My opponent(who will remain nameless) didn't move within the time controls and used up his/her timebank. I then saw the skull thing and clicked on it. Afterwards i got the following messages

    *why lost ?? you are unfair player !!
    *why lost ?? you are unfair player !!

    Am I really unfair player for claiming the win? lol.

    Time controls are a part of chess. I don't see what his issue is.

    I always take them....always.

    Maybe the lad does not understand time controls and thinks he lost
    because you did something underhand.

    (if you did please tell me the secret. I'm in dire need of some help.)

    Though I did like this one Game 11823707
    How I shuggled my Rooks and Bishops into the kill position are gumming up the Queenside.

    I have discovered that there is a way you can avoid being timed out. It works 100% of the time and is totally legal...

    Move!

    The silly thing is, the idiot who you timed out, has won by timeout himself, nine times. So how has he got the nerve to complain?
