  saffuna: Yeah, <jbc> And you can no longer harass and disrespect a GM so insistently that she leaves the site.

It's really terrible.

<Jim>, as usual you understood nothing. But I will NOT call you an "idiot".

  Susan Freeman: Actually an idiot has an IQ of under 25, and it might be impossible to post anything on here. I am quite sure a high functioning "moron" could, based on pure speculation and not evidence of course....:)
Mar-14-19  nok: Leela rather. Morphy didn't play for money.
Mar-14-19  john barleycorn: < Susan Freeman: Actually an idiot has an IQ of under 25 ...>

Well, 25 is less than 80.

<I am quite sure a high functioning "moron" could, based on pure speculation and not evidence of course....:)>

there is daily proof here. However, some admins/moderators got shy.

An IQ of 25 would put you in a 1/1.000.000 bracket (given a standard deviation of 15) and is not measurable in a meaningful way. You would be in a vegetative/brain-dead state.

Your number is probably from the now defunct Levine and Marks 1928 IQ classification. https://forum.wotlabs.net/index.php...

  Susan Freeman: <Diademas> Correct! I used "license" to make my point. It has become political here is the US. (I do not think I need to explain.) I wonder if half wit would be better? Idiot Savant? We all love those. If you call someone an idiot you must explain by what standards. The point is moot.

Not by posting <guideline> #3

  Dr Winston OBoogie: <'There are three geniuses in football: Pele, Maradona and Messi. Period. Ronaldo is very strong as he lets you win everything, but <<Messi is a genius and something else>>. 'Ronaldo's an extraordinary footballer, but Messi is a genius,' Capello told Sky Italia.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/f...>

Messi is the undisputed 🐐!

Mar-15-19  rogge: True dat, <Winston>, but Ronaldo is better in the biggest international games.

  Dr Winston OBoogie: Say that when Ronaldo drags a team to the <World Cup final!>. I'm not saying Ronaldo isn't an exceptional football player but he's just not Messi! Messi will go down as the greatest player of all time and I have no doubt about that, I've never doubted him since I first saw him in the same team as Ronaldinho and Henry - to stand out above those two <aged 19> makes him very special. World Cup's are now irrelevant.. You get better players in the Champions League!

Of course I'd love to see England win a World Cup in my lifetime, it's just the <ultimate patriotic rush> when your national team wins, but I'm English - we're not used to winning WC's. I couldn't give a rats ass about CL teams because I don't support any of the teams, but I acknowledge it's the superior tournament.

Ronaldo is amazing. Messi is an alien!

Mar-15-19  rogge: I agree with you.

With international games I mean CL as well as the national team. My impression is that Messi's best games are in La Liga.

  Dr Winston OBoogie: Would you like me to show you his <non la Liga> goals? You need to check out the stats, I mean - he's the Champions League top scorer <ever> and he's got <2 years> on Ronaldo, those goals weren't scored against LeCrape!

Lest never forget... "Here <he> is again. Here <he> is again.... That's ASTONISHING - that's world class!!" https://youtu.be/xc7VpKgGkyU

Messi v Bayern Munich in the CL semi finals 🤷‍♂🤷‍♂🤷‍♂
