  shalgo: He had a profile here: User: goosey3.

If you look at his games collections, he had curious dislikes of Tiviakov, Short, and Carlsen. I wonder what was behind them?

  tpstar: It's more like a running joke:

User: goosey

User: goosesmack

User: smackgoose

User: cksmasooge

User: ontocaustic

Nobody seriously believed he was a name player.
