    if we had an option that we could play games without time controls maybe people would stop whining about vacation flags and being timed out. They could just opt for playing without controls instead.

    What, do you mean like we could take a year for a move if we wanted?

    exactly. you won't see me playing any games like that, but since so many people get so upset when they lose a game on time that might be the only option for them to be able to play chess and live some sort of happy life.

    If there was a heaven, people there would be whining that the weather was too hot, the music's crap, why's there no meat? Why can't I indulge in kinky sex? WHy are my friends in eternal torture?
    I know i can't stop them from whining, they will find something else to whine about.

    This is just me whining back at the whiners.

    p.s. don't send me to heaven, all the do gooders are there, send me to hell with the rest of the party people

    Half the people on here would be dead before they finished a game - especially if they were losing. They'd just stop moving - no one would ever lose a game.

    Best way to stop the whining is to be non-responsive.
    A 21/28 game should be plenty for these type of players.

    i will try that

    but even with a 21/28 game they will start....'what if i go on a vacation for 3 months.....'

    i do not think that they will ever stop nagging about the vacation thingy
