I agree with Jeroen that blitz is poor training for beginners, but can be useful to experienced players.

Although blitz is not always as pleasurable as fine whiskey, sometimes it is less harmful. I play it to get my fix when it is not my turn in enough correspondence games, and I play it when I need a drink before noon. :twisted:

The concerns about internet cheating border on paranoia. Most people don't have the time or inclination to learn to cheat and get away with it. The others quickly lose interest. Yes, there is cheating every day in internet chess. But with millions of games played every day, how many cheat? Infidelity is far more common.

I agree with the cheating aspect, now. I am involve in many correspondence games presently and it is obvious there isnt one cheat amongst them.
