   Sep-01-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Absentee: <DrLecter: Then you're forced to shed your aura of invincibility to get parties interested in funding your matches.> Obviously. It's all a clever ploy.
   Aug-31-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
Absentee: <HeMateMe: As we age, pensions will be smaller and will take longer to achieve. Full social security benefits will be pushed up to a higher age. People will have to work harder to maintain good health as seniors. All good.> Sounds thrilling.
   Aug-31-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
Absentee: We should vote and decide democratically what is Caruana's TPR.
   Aug-30-14 Caruana vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <Karposian: This is nonsense. No matter the circumstances that led to him moving to Europe and representing Italy, look at the facts. All his four grandparents are Italian, he hasn't lived in the US since he was twelwe and he represents Italy. He has Italian citizenship and even

   Aug-28-14 Nakamura vs Stockfish, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <posoo> Why does posoo refer to posoo in the third person?
   Aug-28-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <perfidious: It is far easier, though, to stereotype: Tal only knew how to play combinative chess, Petrosian positional, ad nauseam.> My favourite's the one about Lasker intentionally playing bad moves to trick the opponent "psychologically".
   Aug-28-14 Chess Olympiad (2014)
Absentee: I would never have suspected Kramnik was a furry.
   Aug-28-14 Topalov vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <pietah: But chess needs attractive games.> Why? And attractive how?
