Although the idea of a boxing chess thread has potential, I'll admit. Whoever loses the chess match has to travel to the winner's house. It'd be like a meet-and-greet except with a bunch more punching.

I concur. Browsing the site from work with the name as it is might be just a bit too much of a minefield.

I changed :tomato: to 'queens' for obvious reasons. The thread title works on two levels now.

There used to be a thread on chess.com named Chess Queens that was essentially the Open Site Blathering of that site. It was in the "Values" section of the site, which they retired in 2008 or so (and much drama was had), so unfortunately I can't link to it, but basically it was decided that, unlike other pieces, there was no real way to determine if a Queen was worth 9 points*, so the thread quickly devolved into a spam thread with the notable exception that the posters there were, well, posting on a chess bulletin board so they had already admitted they had no lives and therefore the thread was an epic testament to all things nerdery, especially considering that in its hay-day the site got over 3,000 unique posters. The thing I remember most is the ongoing "is it okay to hit on your opponent" debate, followed closely by the Pro-Fischer/Anti-Fischer debates and the Kasparov-Humanitarian discussion, and of
course the "is it okay to pee your pants if it wins you the game" conversation, but in reality it just gave me a reason to appreciate spam on levels most of you whippersnappers will never know.

*-The thing about trading a queen for 9 points worth of other pieces is that, of course, it also involves using moves to do so.

Spoilered 'cuz related but walls of text cut into game time
Well, perhaps I can answer your question best with one of my own. What is an "internet mad?" It's something I never understood very well, and outside of the MTGverse I haven't heard the phrase used un-ironically since, like, 2006. It doesn't really make sense to me that the transfer medium for the angering stimulus should make one bit of difference as to the reaction to it (if simply from an evolutionary standpoint), and this is a view shared by almost everyone I recognized to be of worth over on chess.com. See, you couldn't flame people, of course, and
trying to convince someone that they're being an asshat was an uphill battle, so the most common response to any sort of asshattery was to spam the everliving hell out of them, which (again, considering that these were chess nerds who didn't differentiate between IRL mad and Internet Mad) proved an effective method both for letting the person know they'd pissed you off, as well as letting them know you found their stance... questionable.

There was one memorable incident where some chess dad posted in the Queens thread musing on the justification of, get this, abusing his kid to make him better at chess. It was, as you can imagine, a galvanizing issue divided quite clearly between the people who wanted to know the guy's address so they could call Child Services, and the people who could produce quite a body of evidence that, yes, giving your child strong negative response to failure made them fail less often. Now either side couldn't just say "You're a terrible
person" or accuse the other side of lying, as those were both infractable, but it was for some of us an important enough topic that the idea of simply walking away wasn't a desirable action. Thus spamming the opposition into oblivion became our weapon of choice, and it worked well there, especially the practice of using far too few words to validate your own stance; I've always had a problem understanding why that form of attack pattern loses its validity when someone can just seemingly turn their brains to "internet mode" and dismiss your veiled accusations.

Yeah, I don't understood why some people do that. I've never seen it work out.

Maybe Pendulum can come in and tell us all the advantages to the "whatever it's called" opening.
