  Jim Bartle: Knight13 seems to be giving us all the Bird today.
Feb-23-08  MichAdams: Does <cg.com> hold stats on who the most ignored posters are?

I confess to having aspirations for a top 10 spot, but I recognise that I'm not in the same league as someone like <Knight13>.

  Jim Bartle: Ah, the sweet innocence of the newer kibitzers, who know not the legend that was...ferociousbeast.
Mar-16-14  Vermit: The failure of Burn to play d5 is all the more curious as he used precisely this strategy to defeat Bird nine years in the same opening. See:
