There are indeed sufficient 'current' forum threads available, without the need to ressurrect old ones. To compare a defunct forum thread to a past game doesn't really hold water. On a chess site, old games will always be a source of interest and discussion. Random discussions from the past however will seldom hold the same longevity or interest.

Well, the main irrelevancy here is replying to a poster who is no longer with us. I really don't see the point in that, as he's obviously not going to respond to you, but your point about manners is well put.

On one hand, Earl, etiquette and good manners pay no attention to time, be it past, present or future. Neither to whom is addressed.

On the other hand, how is it that ChessWorld places posters whose reply, as you say, may not be relevant? Should not they eliminate posters after certain period of time? Should not be that a perfect and sound “administration of bites”?

Come to think of it. . . then, what´s the sense of analyzing and correcting a past chess game, if it has already been played. . .?

The thing about replying to a post that is over a year old is that it may no longer be relevant. That is especially true in this case, as the original poster hasn't been on the site for 388 days.

Amigo kjjr:

I think it would be a good idea to inform new opponents (as they come in) that you, rather the game, might have “time inconveniencies” due to medical treatment.

It is not so much a mater of etiquette, as of fair play..

Bye

Exactly.
If you aren't prepared for an opponent to take the time allowed, then choose games with shorter move limits.

I understand the frustration that players face as I've experienced this myself on another site.
Again I apologise for taking so long and I will not take on any more games until I am able to give them adequate time.

I'll admit that I get frustrated with opponents who use most or all of the time limit. Waiting months for a single game to end so that a tournament can be finished seems ridiculous. The fact is that people who use all the time allotted to them are doing nothing wrong. If I don't wish to wait ten days for a move, I shouldn't be in a game with that time limit. Opponents who have been making moves at a reasonable pace, and slow down when they find themselves in a lost position, are the real problem.
There can be any number of reasons why an opponent takes the full amount of his allotted time. Of course, the end result is the same. I avoid playing in most tournaments with longer time limits. I also avoid games with those opponents who have been prone to use all their time in past matches.
