  offramp: <onedog: LIFE Master AJ: I may not be a chess master, but I am an expert in the English language, so if, as you claim, you intend or intended to write a book on this or any other subject, I seriously suggest you polish up both your grammar and your vocabulary - assuming you intend to write in that language. Perhaps what you write sounds more lucid and fluent in Hungarian or whatever your native tongue is.>

<Onedog> you are barking up the wrong tree. LMAJ is one of those people who refuses to learn or to be told he is wrong.

Here is an exchange you can see at User: LIFE Master AJ. In response to someone's post LMAJ wrote:

<Feb-27-14 LIFE Master AJ: Your welcome ... (what did I do?).>

He always gets that wrong, and I decided to mention it:

<Feb-28-14 offramp: < LIFE Master AJ: Your welcome...> You mean < You're welcome>, short for <You are welcome>.>

That doesn't seem too abrupt, does it? I didn't think so, but it enraged LMAJ who threw his hat to the floor, jumped up and down on on it and screamed:

<Feb-28-14 LIFE Master AJ: haha What are you, an English prof?>

Whereupon I made the following brain-stoppingly brilliant riposte:

<Mar-01-14 offramp: <LIFE Master AJ: haha What are you, an English prof?>
I'm surprised you think that only a Professor of English can tell the difference between <your welcome> and <you're welcome>!>

Which left poor LMAJ in a terrible state; a morbid acuteness of the senses; the most insipid food are alone endurable; he can wear only garments of certain texture; the odours of all flowers are oppressive; his eyes are tortured by even a faint light; and there are but peculiar sounds, and these from stringed instruments, which do not inspire him with horror.

So you see, there is nothing to be done!

My eyes are bleeding after reading this run-on sentence. An expert?

  TheFocus: <onedog> should learn the proper use of punctuation.
Apr-03-14  landogriffin: @ <patzer2> thanks a lot for this, although I think you are giving me more credit than I deserve! :)
Apr-03-14  LIFE Master AJ: <off> As your handle implies, you are simply "OFF." (center)
Apr-03-14  LIFE Master AJ: off target
Apr-03-14  LIFE Master AJ: ... and just about everything else as well.

Chess players can analyse anything; you should see my brilliant and scathing criticism of <Zukertort's headstone> at Johannes Zukertort.

Apr-03-14  onedog: OhioChessFan: My eyes are bleeding after reading this run-on sentence. An expert?

Yes, my dear, an expert. Just because a sentence is long, doesn't make it a run-on sentence. Check your grammar. I know you belong to the three-second attention span generation, but does that mean you can't follow a sentence of more than ten words, even with punctuation there to help you? Poor you.

Apr-03-14  onedog: TheFocus: please point out one punctuation error in one of my kibitzes. I would love to learn the error of my ways from you.
Apr-04-14  LIFE Master AJ: <My eyes are bleeding after reading this run-on sentence. An expert?>

I almost lost control of my senses (and some other faculties) ... after reading this. ROFL!!!!!

  TheFocus: <onedog> <TheFocus><please point out one punctuation error in one of my kibitzes. I would love to learn the error of my ways from you.> From <Simon Kim Williams vs The World>: <I believe white is far from lost, in fact I think those who think we are winning might be a little optimistic.>

You might want to buy a semi-colon to place after "far from lost,". Or a period instead of a comma. You could also have placed a comma after: "in fact".

This would have looked better: <I believe white is far from lost; in fact, I think those who think we are winning might be a little optimistic.>. Or this: <I believe white is far from lost. In fact, I think those who think we are winning might be a little optimistic.>

In your run-on sentence, you should have used a semi-colon (again). I will leave it to you to figure out where.

  Castleinthesky: Despite all the mindless blather below, this is a great game in the truest sense of the Romantics.
Dec-13-14  TheBish: Yes, thank you Castleinthesky! This is supposed to be a forum for discussing the above game (or so we would be led to believe, if we believe the rules and guidelines of CG.com). And this is a classic game, so it's a shame to play over it and expect to see some great analysis or historical insight or whatnot -- and have to wade through so much ego jousting! That and idle chat seem more appropriate in Kibitzer's Cafe. (Why does that sound familiar?)

  plang: No modern player of the Pirc would play 8..e6? (or 7..Nc6?! either) - still a nice attack by Marshall.
Dec-18-17  The Kings Domain: Sterling attack by Marshall and a neat finish, more so considering who he vanquished.
Dec-18-17  Granny O Doul: Sorry I'm late, but I see nothing wrong in onedog's sentence on this page. I do agree the old example could have been better punctuated. It is quite a bold dare to volunteer one's whole history of kibitzes to grammatical and orthographical scrutiny.

As for this game, Black's ...Nc6 looks too committal. Were it part of a plan to pressure White's center with ...Bg4 or to hunt down White's light bishop with ...Nb6 and perhaps ...Na5, it would have made more sense. Castling instead looks better.

Ok, I'm only reading plang's note now. I agree with him.

Sep-20-18  RookFile: Black may already be lost after 8...e6. 7....Nc6 was inaccurate too. More natural and active is 7....Nxc3 8. bxc3 c5.

  beatgiant: "Castling into it"! Instead of 17...0-0, how about 17...Bd7 18. Rf2 0-0-0 19. Raf1 <h5>, with counterplay (20. Nxf7 Nxf7 21. Rxf7 Qg5). I'm not even sure White has the advantage.
Sep-23-18  RookFile: 17....h5 is a try. Marshall had let some of his advantage slip.
