May-23-16  posoo: HOW da MITEY have FALEN. I hope Niglus Shoat is enjoying beating up on poor young icelunders.

BUT I USE DIS FORUM to AGAIN call for da BANING of all games of and references to Niglus Shoat from da chesgames site. It is NOT FAIR to keep da games around.

Who has a thing about Short for some ridiculous reason; he appears to regard himself as Tony Miles' avenger, now that that fine player has gone to his grave.

Don't tell me you ignored posoo.

May-24-16  posoo: Niglus Shoat took da opportunity IN MEALS OBITARY to reveel dat he had been PHILANDERING with TONEY'S OWN GIRLFEIDN.

DO NOT BELIEVE ME? It is on da toney meals PAGE.

I WILL NOT REST until da Nyoozing Philandere is EXPONGED from dis site.

May-24-16  JimmyRockHound: Posoo should get together with Chris Owen.
May-24-16  posoo: Incorect Ruckhund. ChrisOwen dos not say ANYTHING. da old posoo however actually makes SENSE.


why isnt anyone DOING anything about dis?!?!

  ajile: What no French Defense Short Advance games??

: /

Dude why didn't you play 1.e4 and at least give Black a chance to play your signature deal?

May-24-16  LuckyChucky: soopo: why isnt anyone DOING anything about dis?!?!

I guess you have to be a crackhead to care.

May-25-16  posoo: LOCKCHOCK are you referring to me?? I cannot tell.

ANYway u do not have to be a CRAKHED to have basis human decency.

Niglus Shoat sits SMILING AND GRINING like a bafoon in front of da ocean. All while basmirching his "FREND" TONEY MEALS.

But do not engage me on dis anymore, for u clearly do not have da ENERGY to join da caus!

  HeMateMe: scintillating conversation, here.
May-27-16  posoo: HoHutMun,

Just becos u do not have da ethatcal concerns about Niglus dat da Old Posoo has, dos NOT mean you shod make snide remorks.

  offramp: Here is an example of one of <posoo>'s early posts:

A J Goldsby vs V O Popa-Matei, 2003 (kibitz #14)

<LifeMaster AJ trumpets about his "Ignore List" as if it were the most ignoble of sanctions. As if, by banishment to the IGNORE LIST, Shadout Mapes and all his keenly critical brethren are somehow relegated to a lower plane, to the catacombs of Perhaps I too, in time, will wend my way into these nether regions. But I suspect that there IS no such ignore list, and it is just a fantasy of Mr. Goldsby's. He is undoubtedly keen to see what every chessgames member has to say about him. So although the banishment may be advertised, I doubt it is ever effected.

Blessings to all.>

Devo used to call it Devolution.

  offramp: One thing you can say about Hjorvar: he's a Gretarsson.
May-27-16  posoo: Uffrump, how can u even SEE da posts on a game where da kibbitzing is closed?!?!

And ah yes u remminded da old Posoo of da times before da trubbles. I cannot write like dat anymore for it gives me da ONGST.

May-27-16  posoo: Also uffrump, dat is da SECOND time u have researched Past Posoo! u like?!
May-31-16  LuckyChucky: Why affect this ghetto English, when you can (probably) communicate in more competent fashion?

The last time was different. You are thinking of Nakamura vs Stockfish, 2014 (kibitz #32) where I wrote this:

<<Perfidious> <Aug-26-14 Big Pawn: <posoo: now dis - DIS - is precisely why posoo ONLY plays blits games. You can all pore over da lines and try to figure out what went wrong in Nukk's game.>

What kind of ignorant language is this? "Dis...da...">

It is weird, isn't it? Have you looked at User: posoo?

Here are some early posts of hers:

Gligoric vs Bidev, 1946, <Nov-10-05 posoo: Good heavens! Watching that game was truly a pleasure! Demolishing the pawns often depends on the ability to quickly maneuver a rook into play! I am just beginning to understand when kingside sacrifices are sound, and when they aren't.>

Geller vs Kholmov, 1957 <Nov-25-05 posoo: A classic case of taking away flight squares. Why attempt 33. Qd7 if the sixth rank is already off limits to the king? The 33rd is all about keeping the king off the SEVENTH rank. This is the kind of thing I need to become good at.>

I think I prefer the <old> posoo.>

May-31-16  posoo: LIKCHUCK, do NOT crittacize da posoo for being "ghetto." In adition to it being UNSEAMLY, it is also amosing to see it coming from a kibbitzer who usuaolly comments only about

"ghetto" "boners" and "queers."

DO NOT BLAME OR CENSOR me cg comunaty, just look at da man's profile! I am only a WINDOW ON DA TRUTH.

May-31-16  LuckyChucky: No, you just overrate yourself. Where did you learn to spell, Borneo Remedial Academy?
Jun-13-16  posoo: Lockachusetts,

There is no such place, I looked it up on da internet.

Da old posoo went to harvard coluge.
