Absentee: <HeMateMe: Now, no one has any respect for the women's FIDE title.> Because it doesn't translate to performance. Which makes it meaningless.

Absentee: <The Rocket: My moves are not the first choice by any modern engine in the game. I go beyond their horizon.> <The Rocket: People will remember me for humiliating the machines, at a time when grandmasters needed odds games to be given any chance.> So... why aren't you ...

Absentee: <HeMateMe: Simon Webbs seems to think it is na´ve to ask about another culture. Usually I have to read the New York Times to learn about these things.> This explains a lot of things.
