|Mar-23-06|| ||Jim Bartle: I want to know, too, since it's called "Grudge Match," and what does RGCP stand for?|
|Mar-23-06|| ||Calli: Who is Sam Sloan and why would anyone have relations with him? ;-)|
RGCP is an internet newsgroup; rec.games.chess.politics. Probably to settle an arguement started there.
|Mar-24-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Who is Sam Sloan and why would anyone have relations with him? ;-)>|
<Calli> He's definitely an interesting fellow you should know about. Here are some links to get you started:
|Mar-24-06|| ||Calli: <EmperorAtahualpa> He is a crackpot that I try to avoid knowing any more about. |
|Mar-24-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <<EmperorAtahualpa> He is a crackpot that I try to avoid knowing any more about.>|
<Calli> I think you're making an unfair judgment. Sure, I acknowledge he is peculiar, and that is even an understatement. But to call him a crackpot is not even realistic.
Would you say a crackpot is able to orally argue a case all by himself in front of the United States Supreme Court and even win the case 9-0? Without a a law degree? You've got to respect things like that.
Also, there are more people out there who are or were peculiar, but brilliant. What about Leonardo da Vinci for instance? Would you call him a crackpot you want to avoid knowing more about?
|Mar-24-06|| ||KYENNY139: Who is Bill Brock? Why is his rating 2000? Would <CHESSGAMES.COM> post my games? I am almost 2000 and I am playing like an expert! I am beating 2000 players. By January First I am gonna be an expert. I will be 2100.|
|Mar-24-06|| ||Calli: <EmperorAtahualpa> Sam Sloan and DaVinci?? See how even a little exposure to his ravings affects a sane person. Proceed at your own risk! Thats my warning. Whenever I stumble upon a Sloan page or newsgroup posting, I qucikly run away. :-)|
|Mar-24-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Guys, I'm not saying there are no reasons to hate him, but what I am saying is that that there are reasons for admiring him.|
|Mar-24-06|| ||Calli: I stand behind my original comment.
"An eccentric person, especially one with bizarre ideas." -dictionary.com
Even Sloan could not disagree with that.
