Why I Shouldn't Play Correspondence Games

Chess has a long history of people playing by mail, or in the present day, email. I've generally avoided these games because I don't have the patience. However, when challenged by a friend I couldn't say no and ended up a in a mess. I played a bad opening, went on a sacrifice binge and still somehow won. White was probably winning until the last two moves and equal until his final move blunder. After Rd8 white is getting mated or losing substantial material in all lines.
