Thanks to User: jessicafischerqueen for generously presenting me with a year of premium membership!

I want to thank the User who presented me with another year of premium membership!

Akiva Rubinstein, Jose Raul Capablanca, Vladimir Kramnik, Anatoly Karpov and Judit Polgar.

Thanks to User: technical draw for one year of premium membership (2008.03.30 to 2009.03.30)! It was a nice experience.

For my article <Research about Rubinstein’s mental stability prior to the First World War> have a look at Akiba Rubinstein

Interesting quote:

<Eric Schiller: <Hehateme>Sorry, I forgot about the ridiculous"plagiarism" charge. Winter got his knickers in a bunch because in my combination and tactics books I never said where the game combination was first published! Nor has anyone else, ever! It is indicative of his "scholarahip".

That's why I have a Ph.D. and he doesn't and never will.> Source: Eric Schiller

LIFE Master AJ: <A.) You are nothing more than a loud-mouthed, rude little fish ... a punk with a bad attitude. B.) You are igmored, (again).>

On Essent 2006, Round 2
AdrianP: <<Danailov Press Release> As can be seen from the Essent tournament, Kramnik has no right to call himself the world chess champion. After all, his contender for the title is being roundly trounced by players not even in the top 10. We, that is Topalov and I, refuse to recognise the recent match in Elista, meaning that Topalov remains the true world chess champion. Keep those loo doors closed.>

  perfidious: <Karpova> There are different levels and definitions of proof, come to all that.

You may recall discussions of Occam's Razor in which that poster held forth in typically simplistic, good guys vs bad guys style:

<Like I said before, the Internet is full of pure lies and absolute junk. (Viagra, spam, "you just won a billion pounds," etc.) The tough part is knowing what's real and what is not.

Ockham's Razor ... (an accepted scientific principle for hundreds of years now) ... says that - without any proof to the contrary - that the simplest explanation must be the correct one. (I.e, its all a lot of absolute, unmitigated bunk ... complete and utter nonsense ... mostly delusions of grandeur, etc.)>

May-15-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Karpova: <perfidious>

he should start with the basics first and learn that the burden of proof is on him. And instantly refutable claims don't strengthen his position. Immediately resorting to personal attacks in order to intimidate the dissenter or destroy him in public is merely a hindrance to learning how it is done.

May-15-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Karpova> It should also be noted that he appears to be in the slow reading group despite all pretensions to the contrary; for his attempts to intimidate me have come to precisely nothing--this despite all his whinging whenever he feels hard done by--which seems to be whenever he faces dissent of any kind, away from his treasured forum, whence he crushes all attempts at freedom of expression.

  Karpova: <perfidious>

There is no way out for him. Whatever he proclaims, it is always in the end about him (he exposed all the cheaters, he is a master, he is a great chess historian, etc.).

He not only garnishes it with outrageous claims, but no one else (except for authorities he acknowledges, i. e. he himself, Soltis, some anonymous professors and chessplayers) counts - because in a discussion not the arguments and insights matter but only the persons uttering them, according to this mindset.

It's only natural that this causes people to oppose him. And now the transformation takes place: Suddenly, all of this criticism of his person becomes criticism of the matter in question (the matter itself, not his claims). Now he acts as if it was not about him but, as we could see here, about cheating for example. He acts as if he was surrounded by people who were either too blind to see a cheater when he spots one, or cheated themselves. That he, who made himself the centre of attention, is now the object of the discussion has to be hushed up. Although the others were merely genuinely interested in the subject and not naive enough to not gather more information first before judging. The result is that he manages to sabotage the discussion.

  perfidious: <Karpova> This quote from Marco cited by you caught my attention:

<(Fame in chess is only achieved in international tournaments or - up to famous sample - by indefatigable tam-tam, i. e. blatant self-worshipping and devastating critiques of opponents.)>

Sounds like a certain <Fractious Floridian>.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Karpova: <perfidious>

Good catch!

The quote comes from the introduction to Flamberg vs Rubinstein, 1910 - Flamberg unexpectedly won the tournament ahead of Akiva. Later that year, he lost a match to Akiva 0.5-4.5, though. But this game shows how talented Flamberg was. Still, he was relatively unknown and this induced Marco to make the quoted remark. It's not clear who he had in mind, but I'm pretty sure it must have been Tarrasch, e. g. see <chessical>'s post: Georg Marco.

While it mostly fits quite well content-wise, it was still about someone actually famous. <AJ>'s claim to fame instead merely consists of such a mention:

O. G. Urcan: <A site at which A.J. Goldsby occupies a prominent place is not a site that can ever be reliable or classy.> http://www.chesscafe.com/urcan/urca...

  Karpova: An off-topic discussion about plagiarism and copyright was kicked off on the Anatoly Karpov page, although with breaks - there's another bit here Anatoly Karpov and then it livened up again after the belated reply Anatoly Karpov.

The discussion didn't get too far, as several different issues were mingled and different expressions used as if they were the same. The most blatant case was <violation of copyright> and <plagiarism> which are both not necessarily connected to each other, let alone the same.

<Copyright> protects the holder of the copyright, usually the author or publisher, from others copying their work.

A <plagiarist> claims authorship of other people's work for himself.

Obviously, these two are not the same. You can plagiarise work which is not copyrighted, e. g. publish Capablanca's 'Chess Fundamentals' and claiming to be the author. If you print your own copies of Judit Polgar's 'How I beat Fischer's record' without permission, you are violating her copyright without plagiarising her.

Also thrown in, despite being irrelevant for the discussed case, was the copyright of the game score (for discussions surrounding this, see especially Dr. Lasker around 100 years ago, claiming copyright for the Janowski match (he also held it for the Schlechter match), and later Sveshnikov). A game score can hardly be plagiarised, except for when you claim to have played a game you didn't.

Why annotations to a game should not be copyrightable themselves even if the game score isn't, was not sufficiently explained and the matter merely avoided. Neither why the copyright status of a game is relevant for cases of serial plagiarism.

Again, this is not connected to the main problem, but professional chessplayers do get paid for playing chess, so even if they don't have the copyright for the games, they make money of them. But the consequences of the wrong logic applied could be absurd: In her 'Judit Polgar teaches Chess' series, Judit annotates plenty of her own games - so according to these people it would be fine for everyone to freely copy and distribute her annotations and even claim authorship. After all, she doesn't have the copyright for her own game scores, so how could he have it for her annotations then... By the way, her books are marvellous, and there are others with great annotations, which leave no doubt that annotations are independent, creative and intellectual achievements and should be protected.

  perfidious: <Karpova> Now the <Fractious Floridian> has favoured us with an explanation why his wins are no longer being posted on CG: A J Goldsby and a post from <Appaz> at The Kibitzer's Café.

Strange indeed how a player who was no stronger than I at his peak has a clearly better record here, but I will not waste time and energy on submitting games which are replete with weak play, solely to boost my winning percentage--far more interesting to have games with stronger opposition, even with losses thrown in now and again.

  Karpova: <LIFE Master AJ: haha

Actually, my record is not that accurate, as many of my losses are not here. And I don't care anymore ...

A.) My games cannot be kibitzed upon.

B.) They upload my losses, but not my wins.

In my book, DF has an axe to grind. According to a personal source - in his own chess club - he hates Jews. If this is true, it would go a long way to explain his poor treatment of this NM.>

Source: A J Goldsby

<LIFE Master AJ: And while this might seem unusual <preposterous?> to you, I will offer the following true stories, from my own life:

#1.) When I was a little boy, if a friend's parents found out that I was Jewish, they would not allow their child to play with me.

#2.) I once attended a church in Myrtle Grove as a teenager. When they learned/uncovered the fact that that I was of Jewish descent, I was told to: "Leave! And never return."

#3.) My wife's parents and grandparents found out I was Jewish, and I was banned for life; I was told that I would never be allowed in their house again. (This was one of the hardest things to comprehend, even my wife - Julie - found this behavior incomprehensible at times.)

So if you think that anti-Semitism is dead, you would be completely and wholly mistaken.>

  SwitchingQuylthulg: Timeline of newly uploaded AJ games:

Oct 26, 2008: AJ has 34 wins and 10 losses (72.6%; ratio of wins to losses 3.4:1) - A J Goldsby

Aug 10, 2009: AJ has 38 wins and 10 losses (74.6%; ratio of wins to losses 3.8:1) - A J Goldsby

Aug 14, 2010: chessgames.com refuses to upload user-submitted losses by AJ, claiming they were "mostly internet blitz games" - chessgames.com chessforum (For testing purposes, I tried to submit a few classical game losses by AJ against serious opponents in serious tournaments around this time. They were never uploaded, either.)

Dec 3, 2010: AJ has 59 wins and 11 losses (79.6%; ratio of wins to losses 5.4:1) - A J Goldsby

Jul 2, 2012: AJ has 69 wins and 13 losses (79.5%; ratio of wins to losses 5.3:1) - A J Goldsby

Apr 12, 2013: AJ has 71 wins and 13 losses (79.9%; ratio of wins to losses 5.5:1) - A J Goldsby

Today: AJ is down to a miserable 71 wins and 16 losses. It's actually true that the last three AJ games that have gone up are losses, although AJ himself submitted at least one of them (A J Goldsby) and actually complained when it didn't go up fast enough (chessgames.com chessforum). It's also rather curious, given the developments of August 2010, that one of the other two (A J Goldsby vs T Hamilton, 2003) is a Dos Hermanas game against a non-master. But in any case, this is clearly a development we should welcome.

  Karpova: Thanks for the interesting and detailed account, <Switch>!

I could very well imagine that the offending game was P Ballard vs A J Goldsby, 2013.

Everything was fine as long as Golsby's win - A J Goldsby vs P Ballard, 2012 - was their only game in the database.

When the loss was also uploaded, he tried to force its deletion in typical fashion by claiming the game score was incorrect and incomplete without giving details - chessgames.com chessforum.

He later complained:

<LIFE Master AJ: I am going to submit my win vs. Pat Ballard from the 2013 Louisiana State Championships.

Since you posted my loss against this player, posting my win is the ONLY fair thing to do ... not posting it will reveal to the world your true intentions ... ... ... and perhaps further sully your reputation. (If this is even possible!)> chessgames.com chessforum

Even before that, he had reacted strongly to the game:

After someone had posted the game score, Goldsby deleted it and called Ballard <grossly inferior> and <lucky>, see Odd Lie and Patrick A Ballard.

Ballard himself had this to say about their OTB encounter:

<Pballa: [...], but there was an incident after the game that <skytzo985> posted above. AJ showed his class by refusing to shake my hand after the game, actually taking his scoresheet and hitting my hand with it.> Patrick A Ballard
