That's not true. People would much rather I won than the opponents shouting obscenities. The etiquette came from my heart. Considering that I'm the only reason some games take one year and not two, I think you might be onto something though.

I love rhetorical answers. They're unquestionable.

It's said that I'm so wry that it's indistinguishable whether or not I mock. I'm serious. It's similar to being cloaked in transpositions, the meaning of which are encrypted for their shear multitude.

Now is there an improvement on that sentence structure/move order? I'm appreciative of that sort of thing and always buy dishes and utensils I'm unable to understand the purpose of.

If at times I open my mouth to speak, and there's just some howling sound coming from it, try to decipher it. (edit) out of/from. Chess, mirroring life. Being diminished from appearing to have a vast wealth of knowledge to the status of Tarzan lord of the apes, and playing from that poor position more determined than previously had been the case.

Some people may choose not to for their own good reasons; for example, if they are playing a very interesting game, and they'd prefer to see how it plays out; or maybe it's an unrated game with a new member.

But there is no etiquette which says it's more honourable to give your opponent just that bit more time. So please don't ever feel bad about just claiming the win!


I realize, and yet it was more to magnify the aspersion that someone had run away in so doing. I like the way the angry few identify themselves by being angry at it's mention. That's an empathetic oxymoron. (edit) empathy/empathetic. I should really study English. We're barely able to speak it in these colonies.

Exactly. The time limit is part of the deal struck at the start of the game. I would deliberately not claim on time about as often as I would deliberately choose not to take a piece that my opponent has left en pris.

I'll just answer my own question. I will wait a few days beyond but no longer. After all, I've moved into four different apartments waiting for some people in a single game.
