When the position is sufficiently lopsided you could compel your opponent to resign. Before I write about the details I ask if anyone thinks this warrants discussion

You can try but I don't see how it can be forced.

I can't try. I am not a site administrator but a site could have criteria. Once the game is sufficiently lopsided it would be adjudicated. For example if you are sure you are up a rook you could request immediate ajudication. If your advantage is deemed to be greater than a rook game over you win. If less than a rook the penalty for an inaccurate claim is a forced draw offer. Whoever owns the site can do almost anything they want.

Now that the how has been explain I invite comments on the pros and cons.

Apparently this site is no longer supported. So, discussions about pros and cons would be in vain here.

Mate is the only certain victory unless the site is fubar :-P

So in a game of football if one team is winning 5-0, should the ref stop the game?
