|Jun-01-10|| ||I play the Fred: And for Schiller, too.|
|Jun-02-10|| ||offramp: Get well soon!|
|Jun-02-10|| ||FHBradley: This is sad news. Get well soon.|
|Jun-02-10|| ||anandrulez: Hi eric get well soon .|
|Jun-04-10|| ||PinnedPiece: Foot amputation may not be the end of it for a diabetic with capillary problems: kidneys and retinas are also at risk.|
Eric needs not only good wishes, but close supervision, & dietary encouragement as well.
|Jun-04-10|| ||TheFocus: Eric, sorry to hear about the foot. Hope you have a good recovery. Get well and get back to posting soon.|
|Jun-04-10|| ||MaxxLange: <PinnedPiece> is quite correct|
|Jun-04-10|| ||BobCrisp: No wonder that Eric was so in favour of socialised medicine. Let's hope this doesn't end up costing him an arm and a leg.|
|Jun-04-10|| ||SufferingBruin: <BobCrisp> Because we are encouraged to avoid personal attacks against users (guideline #3), I cannot say...|
Oh, what the hey: you're a jackass. But then again, you knew that.
|Jun-05-10|| ||BobCrisp: Don't worry, bro, please feel free if it gives you so much pleasure and me so little trouble. |
But I am concerned that you, as an English teacher, albeit one in South Central Los Angeles, apparently have such poor comprehension skills.
My message was evidently a magnanimous one, displaying none of the spite that, for instance, Eric spewed forth upon the recent death of Campomanes.
You may recall that a few years ago, John Watson suffered a stroke that incurred substantial medical bills and a financial appeal was made to the chess community.
|Jun-05-10|| ||wordfunph: <BobCrisp>
here's my post on page 90..
<wordfunph: here's your post on the death of Campomanes..
<Eric Schiller: An evil man who is not going to be missed. Thoroughly corrupt persecutor of those who wanted chess to move forward. Destroyer of our beloved World Championship. Some champagne with dinner tonight to wish him good riddance!>
now are you happy <Eric Schiller>? your post is sick and no respect to the dead..
may bad karma won't cross your fate <Eric Schiller>..>
bad times for Eric...may Campo rest in peace and forgive Eric for his wicked remarks..
again i repeat...Campo rest in peace. Let go of Eric..
|Jun-05-10|| ||SufferingBruin: Bob,
1) I'm not your bro. I think you used the word "bro" as an epithet but one would not want to assume, would one?
2) The "albeit in South Central Los Angeles" line? A condescending touch, spoken like a true conservative.
3) While I appreciate your concern for my comprehension skills, I really think you should clean your own house first.
I love how wingnut conservatives make an outrageous comment (usually an insult) and then raise their hands and say, "who, me?", usually in the midst of making yet another specious if not entirely spacey attack.
Looking forward to your next post.
|Jun-05-10|| ||BobCrisp: <I'm not your bro.>|
Sorry, sis, it didn't even occur to me that you were female.
Something like 98% of <cg.com>'s readership is male.
|Jun-05-10|| ||SufferingBruin: <BobCrisp> Oh, snap! How will I recover! |
I'm a guy, friend. Just not your bro.
Shoot, this might be fun. Post another one.
|Jun-05-10|| ||wordfunph: <BobCrisp> <SufferingBruin>, nice to see you both playing the mind game...chess! peace brothers.. :-)|
|Jun-05-10|| ||SufferingBruin: <wordfunph> Yeah, we should both put this to rest. I'm going to go outside and see if I can scare up a game. With my rating, I assume most will be fighting to play me, if nothing else to improve their self-esteem. (sigh)|
I love this game. Peace right back at ya.
|Jun-05-10|| ||keypusher: Eric, I am a bit late, but please accept my best wishes for a full recovery. I am sure you don't need to be told, but you need to take very good care of yourself with diabetes.|
|Jun-05-10|| ||tud: Best whishes for a good recovery Eric.|
|Jun-06-10|| ||Eric Schiller: I am feeling fine and cooperating with the pros. I am already resuming teaching here at the hospital and online. |
I am playing online and looking for a new place to live when I get out, as driving will be out of thge question for some time.
Main thing I look forward to is reaql food and coffee.
|Jun-06-10|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Glad to hear you're on the mend. Get better soon. Currently enjoying your book on the Cambridge Springs Defense. Any recommendations on other sources?|
|Jun-06-10|| ||Eric Schiller: <wyatt> There is a very good book by GM Jangava, I think (off the top of my head). The opening deserves more attention in elite competition.|
|Jun-24-10|| ||Dumby: I have no idea what is being discussed here, but the guy's name is Lasha Janjgava...|
|Jun-24-10|| ||wordfunph: <Eric S> <Wyatt> GM Lasha Janjgava's books..|
+ The Petroff
+ The Queen's Gambit & Catalan for Black
+ King's Indian & Gruenfeld Fianchetto Lines
|Jun-25-10|| ||Eric Schiller: <word> aLL good books|
|Jul-01-10|| ||Jamboree: Did anyone see the article by Edward Winter in today's Chessbase which links to this page: |
I don't know when that page was originally published, but it seems to document a particularly egregious case of wholesale plagiarism!
Some excerpts from Winter's essay:
"The Encyclopaedia of Chess Middlegames (Chess Informant, Belgrade, 1980) was appropriated by Eric Schiller in his volume The Big Book of Combinations (Hypermodern Press, San Francisco, 1994). It is customary for writers of such works to ‘borrow’ widely from each other, but Schiller went far beyond that. He plundered hundreds (many hundreds) of positions, and gave himself away by indiscriminately repeating countless mistakes from the earlier tome.
[dozens of examples given]
Readers who own the Encyclopaedia of Chess Middlegames and The Big Book of Combinations will see for themselves that the copying perpetrated by Schiller is so extensive that a series of further exposés of his conduct could easily be written, each with a different set of examples."
Perhaps this issue has been answered in the past, but I was curious to hear what Mr. Schiller himself had to say about it, or at least someone could provide a link to a previously published rebuttal, if any.
