What I wrote at Lichess.org about resigning.

"On the contrary. People should mostly learn to resign earlier. When you are playing at a certain level it's just rude to play on."

I don't think it's rude. I appreciate the opportunity to practice how fast I can finish the game.

I have seen a game between 2 very strong players. The losing side would not resign. The player who had an easy win got careless and there was a stalemate.

Another game I watched, 2 strong players, one had an easy win. The loser would not resign. I appreciated that because I learned something about endgames.

Chess players with very little experience should never resign because then they can learn how to win.

I usually resign but only after it's totally hopeless. Sometimes I play until the end. If anyone complains they get blocked.

Numerous times I have lost my queen but I still won the game. Most people would just give up and I think that's wrong.
