When did it go out of fashion to be gracious? I have realised that losing brings out the nasty in people and that this behaviour is not frowned upon. When you loose, is the acceptable practice not to just congratulate, grin and move on? Is it acceptable to call another names and expect to get away with it?

Am I just old-fashioned or too sensitive?

I have always maintained that if you really want something you have to work for it – and if it so happens that you do not get it, be gracious about it. Sometimes you win – and sometimes somebody else wins.
