    Trash talk is ok if you're both doing it for a bit of fun?

    As long as both players agree on what they want to do they may do whatever (commenting, teasing, talking trash).
    As soon as one player is not comfortable it should stop.
    There is alsoi the possibility to add a person to a "ignore" list. In that case you won't get any in game messages any more.

    If it's mild and good natured, yes. When you deliver a crushing move and there's no way out, ask them if they've ever played chess before, that's usually good for a chuckle. Put a doo00OOOD ! at the start of the question.

    A little trash talk is OK if it does not distract, and both players
    have no objection. Just be careful...when in doubt, silence is
    golden!

    Chess is 98% trash talk, 2% skill.

    I only trash talk with one person, a buddy of mine that I've wargamed with for 25 years. I'll get the advantage and start telling him what I'm going to do to beat him, then do it. We both have this really ugly competitive streak when we play...

    I only talk trash when playing casual blitz games.

    If a person is n00Bish enough to force you to deliver mate, when you make the last move say "Checkmate, phaaaaag"! Then put them on your ignore list.

    Is white trash (trash talk from the white player) better or worse than black trash (trash talk from the black player)?

    I'm sorry but I just couldn't help chuckling when you wrote "white trash"...
