: 2|12 ? I never saw a time control as weird as this one. And what is the logic behind this choice of time control? I mean, 2 is so much smaller than 12, and 12 isn't even a very round number in base 10 (thought it's a good number, being a highly composite number, and the first to have as divisors 1,2,3,4). Why not choose 17|42 while we're at it? I mean, something like 5|10 would be almost the same, but the numbers would be more rounds...
: To know at what time control I should play. I want to find a time control that I like and simultaneously that is very popular on every chess websites.
: This is very insulting.
Firstly, nothing forbids anyone from posting in the forums without playing any games here. And if you think it should be made illegal, than go ask a moderator to ban me. But my guess is that he'll just laugh at you and think you're a little disturb.
And secondly, I am certainly not a troll. Do you even know what that insult means?
"In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
Ironically, you're the only person here who corresponds to that definition.
