comment Checkmate in response to a check
Yes, that is an example, regardless of your view on who gets checkmated. (Note that it is not really a matter of opinion. En passant, just like any other move, is illegal when the player is checkmated. E.g. from the final position, it is Black's turn, and he captures White's King before White can capture his. See my post here.)

comment How should I tip if the food is good but the service from the waiter/waitress is terrible in the USA?
I see I should have said "you are lowering the server's pay by not tipping versus tipping". My point was that the restaurant will not tip the server when you don't. See curiousdannii's comment above. Also, I disagree that any tips they get are more than should be expected. Tips are a major part of a server's pay, so it's starkly dismissive to consider them optional.

There's also convo.

@Andy - to be pedantic, you are lowering their pay whether or not they earned it. The point here is that some people think if they don't tip, the restaurant will step in, at least somewhat; but that's not the case 98% of the time. Your tip decides their pay.

comment What is an appropriate term for being habitually put down by criticism?
It makes sense except for being in control of everything and anyone in my path being an obstruction to my greatness. I am glad that is not so :)
