TheAlchemist: Saudi Arabia too often gets a free pass, it's good there are principled people who dare stand up against it. I wish we would see it more often with politicians, but that's a utopian dream.

TheAlchemist: No problem, glad it's been of help. I haven't been updating it for a while, though, so it doesn't contain many recent ones.

  TheAlchemist: <Knight13> Though I love Origins, I meant more recent things like Pillars of Eternity, Divinity Original Sin, Tyranny, Wasteland 2, Shadowrun Dragonfall and Hong Kong, Blackguards, The Age of Decadence, etc.

Maybe you'd like something like Fallout New Vegas (though I would recommend modding it at least a bit)? As far as shooters go, perhaps the Metro or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series? I liked the two new Tomb Raiders as action/adventure goes and if you like more mindless fun, the Saints Row Series. Oh, and as far as Bioware goes, you could check out Jade Empire.

Jun-13-17  Knight13: <TheAlchemist> Thanks, I'll look into all of them, except Fallout: New Vegas, which I've already played (no modding, of course, as I don't do mods) and enjoyed the hell out of.

  Memorable Quotes: For posterity:

Dr Winston OBoogie: <diceman: <Dr Winston OBoogie: Don't tell me you're sore over that Rolling Stone cover, licey? The man would make a great President unfortunately he's Canadian. Most Americans would swap Trudeau for D-Fed.>

Heh, heh!
Analysis from the children's table.

<Did you know Hitler was loved by the world, until a bad Rolling Stone interview angered the people?>>>

Analysis from the toddlers table? Hitler was doing fine until that pesky Rolling Stone article exposed him as an ethnic cleansing <lunatic>

Premium Chessgames Member
  Memorable Quotes: Archived, as promised:

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: Where's my old pal Urso vanished to?? I have a valid question. Why was my post quoting diceman about Hitler being "loved until a Rolling Stone article" deleted? I found it memorable because it's not only untrue but downright hilarious that some simpleton thinks Hitler was a good bloke until Rolling Stone tarnished his reputation LOL.

Seriously Uros. Did you delete that and if so why?

<TheAlchemist>: It was relocated (as will these two) to my forum, nothing was lost except your post count.

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: But why was it deleted Urso?

<TheAlchemist>: I thought I'd nip another potential flame war in the bud. If it was the wrong call, well, I'd rather err on the side of caution. I am sorry if you feel it was unfair, but as I've said last time, this forum isn't about taking pot shots at other members (anymore) or, as Abdel Irada put it back then, not a Rogoff spillover. And anyway, you were both mocking each other, so what was the point of it?

Ever since the "big cleanup" I've decided to archive all deleted posts on my forum, so people can still go through them. Admittedly it's not a perfect solution and can be thought as some sort of censorship, but I feel it's still much better than deleting posts outright.

I wanted to reply sooner, but it takes me a while to formulate my thoughts. Anyway, I really don't want to have this argument again.

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: What do you mean "another flame war?". As far as I'm aware nobody followed me here (unless Keyser Soze did? That wouldn't surprise me but I didn't notice,). I've never really complained when you've deleted other quotes I see as "memorable" because you make good points but I am this time. I expect you to delete all this but I'd like to repost one of the funniest things I've ever seen on this site if you don't mind. As I keep getting told everytime someone votes for a "knock knock who's there" joker in the annual site awards.. "It might be funny to someone else".

Well that quote is <hilarious> to me so I'm going to repost it

<TheAlchemist>: Fine, but limit yourself to the quote, without comments or explanations (and it's something I urge everyone to follow), unless it's really necessary for context (which in this case it wasn't).

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: Okay fair dos my old pal Urso. Delete all this dialogue between you and me and I'll repost without explaining why I found it funny..

It's not like every other quote posted above comes with a little quote from the person posting but it's okay :)

<TheAlchemist>: Look, do give context if you feel you need to, but it's not meant for you to use as a response or a jab. That's my reasoning, anyway, so hopefully you can appreciate it. Thanks.

  TheAlchemist: Reposted:

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: <saffuna: <<Bobsterman>, did you notice that Trump's speech at the UN was strong, very manly and well received by respected leaders around the world?>

<The president of Nambia really loved it>>>


Btw Uros my old pal. I noticed my #MQ from BP about Jesus being a volcano in Hawaii got deleted! I won't even ask why because I'm being targeted for being <too> funny #BPism. I'm just disappointed in you Uros;)

<TheAlchemist>: Look, as I told you before more than once, this isn't the proper venue for personal attacks and vendettas, so don't come here calling people stupid, idiots, etc. If I were targeting you, you'd be banned for posting. You are not, because, believe it or not, I value all contributions, however recent debacles have shown I cannot leave it completely uncurated.

But why couldn't you just post it like this:

<Big Pawn...

<Show me TWO TOP philosophers or theologians who think that God *is* a volcano in Hawaii.>>

<offramp>: redacted, still present

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: Hey! So <unlike everyone else> I just quote the dumbass quotes and say nothing as to why I find it memorable whereas other people post the quotes and give reasons why they find them memorable!? What is this the #NaziQuoteForum? I couldn't give a rats ass if it's Big pawn or the owner of the site, if I find it memorable I'm <going to quote it> because it's nothing personal! Remove your head from your backside and smell the coffee Urass .

And you can quote me on that :)

<offramp>: still present

<TheAlchemist>: Well, thanks. But no, Mark, unlike (most) others, you use the occasion for personal attacks and what seems to me baiting (or trying to). You may notice I don't automatically delete everything of yours, so it's not really about you. I don't know why it's so hard to understand. If you're just messing with me, well done, congrats and all that, but I'm not really in the mood for this.

Just re-posting with no added comment is all the fun, to figure it out for myself.

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: So am I attacking Jim? Am I attacking Bob? Am I <attacking> other people I LIKE?? Like I said. If I see something that makes me laugh I'll quote it regardless of who said it. That's gotta be the 5th quote you've deleted of mine.

<TheAlchemist>: And you're welcome to do that. But surely you understand the difference between

<quote> LOL that's funny


<quote> What an idiot

I've never discouraged the first one, while it's much more likely people will respond to the second and start a back and forth, which is what I don't want. You have plenty of pages for that elsewhere.

<Dr Winston OBoogie>: Let's reevaluate Uros.. "He says show him <two> volcanos! The stupidity just hurts ("I have no words"? Can't remember the exact quote) well if that's "Attacking someone" then I'll be attacking again.

This conversation is over. Bye :)

  TheAlchemist: Anyway, I'm usually not very good with analogies so it might not be the most apt one, but suppose I live in a rented apartment. Is it ok for me to ask my guests to take their shoes off, keep the noise down etc.? More so if it's also "appreciated" by the landlord?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: <the alchemist>

Yup, with normal and reasonable people, with a minimal education background, well, that's a common sense norm..But as you know, you are not dealing with that kind.

But don't worry. <Everybody> got the spirit of the MCQ forum, except that one guy, who is (by miles) the most obnoxious kibitzer of the site and also the worse rule-breaker <ever>.

Therefore, good job.


Sep-26-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Nobody likes you Keyser. <nobody>. And you can quote me on that LOL
Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: No problem. Told you before, as everybody knows: you are a <nobody>, desperate to be relevant Lol
Sep-27-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Uros. I apologize on behalf of keyser. He follows me everywhere and the owner of the site knows it so I strongly encourage you to inform him of the incidents both here and on the Rogoff page. All incidents reported to Daniel I <truly encourage> for reasons he already knows.

I also apologize for finding things funny that you don't. All the best :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: Apologize on your own behalf. I have nothing to do with your obnoxious behavior.You are the one who offend him twice..<BE a man now> an apologize to him for what <you> done.. He is a nice guy. And stop vandalizing his MCQ forum.

We chessgames kibitzers would appreciate that.

  Memorable Quotes: Moved over for further discussion:

<offramp>: <TheAlchemist> Perhaps you should add a single proviso:

<The quote should have the potential be memorable to more than one person.>

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: <offramp>,

The problem I see is who decides this? I mean I can easily justify deleting posts in violation of posting guidelines, someone posting an unrelated comment etc.


Anyway, I have decided I don't have the patience to deal with this anymore, so at least this incarnation (i.e. User: Dr Winston OBoogie> is now banned.

If things don't get better, then I will revise my decision and apologize.

If it is about the quotes, then surely someone will post them eventually (thus we even comply with <offramp>'s proviso, haha).

Anyway, until the next username change, I suppose.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: <Big Pawn>

I wanted to post this on your forum, but it's currently closed, so if you're reading this, I deleted your post as well, as I perceived it as retaliatory. Hopefully we can now move on and things will normalize somewhat.

Sep-27-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: I think you made the right decision Uros. I mean if you can't see my "poddle 🐩" keysiepoos follows me everywhere you're a wise man. If I can't post an MQ without <you> going Adolf on me and telling me I can't add a <sentence explaining why it's memorable> you shouldn't be moderating the page....

Now my stalker (who's about to get jail raped) will follow me here again because he has a poorly brain.

I mean this all started so innocently 1 month ago <until the Nazi MQ decision maker> started to decide what's memorable to one man isn't to <him>

Now please repost the quotes here and I'll put them in my bio. Thank you :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: Look, I gave you a lot of leeway and I really tried to be patient, you can't deny that. I don't really feel like explaining myself again, but don't pin this all on me. I asked you multiple times to not use MQ for your agenda and still you kept at it and let your fights spill over there. If I'm wrong, it will continue to be a mess and as I've said, I will apologize if that happens.

I am tired of dealing with this and frankly I don't feel like racking my brain about what to do anymore. This was the most clear cut solution, we'll see how effective it proves.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have Adolf on line 2. Auf Wiedersehen.

Sep-27-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: <Now, if you'll excuse me, I have Adolf on line 2. Auf Wiedersehen.>

I like you really Uros (in the same way I like Bobsterman3000) but OMG do you fall for the same dumb ass tricks <everytime!>. Just ban me from the MQ page because from now on they go in my bio :)


Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: <you shouldn't be moderating the page>

Until certain someones made it into a fighting pit I didn't have to! For almost 10 years. Let that sink in.

Maybe I shouldn't. But nobody is stopping others from starting/using their own forums. Let the "free market", as it were, decide.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: <you fall for the same dumb ass tricks <everytime!>>

I know I'm naive, I can't always help it. I guess it's a case in point that I don't know how this relates to the current situation, at least as far as my involvement is concerned?

Bottom line, I'm not here to pick fights, I have better ways of wasting time. And I'm tired of dealing with this crap around MQ. Perhaps it was always going to degenerate after so much time, live long enough and all that jazz.

Sep-27-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Uros. No worries mate. I couldn't care less and I <honestly> think you do a great job but I also think you don't realize I have a <criminal stalker> (Keyser Soze!) who follows me everywhere so it's hardly my fault for being so attractive;)

It's no big deal. Ill post them in my bio

I think you're a nice fella but you're naive and prejudice. Shouldn't you be talking to


Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: Yes, well, I admit I'm not privy to a lot that's been going on around here for the past few years and I'm not sure I really want to be. I can sympathize but I'm not sure how it could help by me getting involved.

So, should I add a I did Nazi that coming pun or something here? Not sure, it's hard to concentrate.

Sep-27-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Uros. I'm jesting with you :)

Yeah that's right you don't know what's been going on but I actually applaud you for not giving a rats ass either way. I can't be bothered going into it because a) I don't want to bore you, b) I <genuinely> think you're a decent fella (just naive) and c) I'm going to get <even more drunk> :)

All the best Uros. From now on I'll post them in my bio :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Octavia: Hi, I've just cloned your draw games collection! Thanks for getting them all together! I started doing a collection of draws & then discovered that there are lots & lots & lots of collections of drawn games! I don't want to duplicate any but probably have done already. Fortunately cg always tells you if a new game I'm looking at is already in one of my collections. May be my ten are already in yours? In that case I'll delete them eventually. Thanks again!
