  saffuna: <They bring in black players. We stomp the blacks we have into the dirt for a vote.>

Yeah, I've noticed how that happened in the NBA and NFL. Blacks are stomped into the dirt and can't play.

<Nigerians have taken to social media to celebrate France's second Fifa World Cup title after beating Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki Stadium.>

<Didier Deschamps' side boast of an array of players of African descent, and Nigerians have taken to Twitter to rejoice as a victory for Africa at large.>

<France just won the #WorldCup, but so did Cameroon, Angola, Nigeria, the DRC, Mali, and Guinea and Senegal.>

  optimal play: <Riots break out in Paris after French World Cup win>

<An incredible World Cup final win for France has turned into chaos with riots and looting in Paris.>

Riots by immigrants continue unabated in France but it's worth it just to win the soccer world cup.

If putting together a world cup winning soccer team means flooding your country with poor unemployable Africans, then so be it.

Out of the millions of poor unemployable Africans, there's a pretty good chance you can find at least a dozen or so who are very good at kicking a soccer ball around.

France may be deteriorating into an unliveable third-world neo-African Muslim hell-hole, but hey, they just won the world cup!

That makes the social upheaval all worthwhile.

It's just a matter of getting your priorities right.

<They bring in black players. We stomp the blacks we have into the dirt for a vote.>

Yeah, I've noticed how that happened>

It's a plantation, not a “Final Solution.” (yet)

<in the NBA>

Democrats endorsed hoops for the plantation:

<Midnight Basketball League, the Chicago Housing Authority's new program>

Democrats were trying to keep more of the folks they own alive for election day.
(A plantation ain't no good without a crop of voters)

<and NFL>

Think saffuna.
When running from police, who is more likely to get away?

One who's feet are free, carrying under his arm, or one who is dribbling a soccer ball?

That said, the plantation does have that "Most Dangerous Game" feel to it!

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: The players on the French team are not immigrants, with ONE exception. They are native-born Frenchmen.
Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: <diceman> You said U.S. doesn't have good black soccer players because they are stomped into the dirt.

How is it that blacks in the NBA and NFL weren't stomped into the dirt?

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <saffuna:

How is it that blacks in the NBA and NFL weren't stomped into the dirt?>

You're not keeping a list of players who didn't make it.

(Think Morris Chestnut in, "Boyz n the Hood")

When you stomp people into the dirt and only look at the living, you've missed the point.

Life/liberty and the pursuit of happiness, was supposed to give Morris a chance.

saffuna and the Democrats, "disagreed."

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: <You're not keeping a list of players who didn't make it.>

Oh right.

Seems to me there are only a certain number of roster spots on teams.

And a large number of those spots are occupied by blacks.

Once again, you have proved you are an idiot.

  optimal play: Daniel Freeman's forum has become a shambles.

I won't make it worse which is why I'm posting this on my own forum.

<Stonehenge> made the death anouncement on page 11

I made one single post on page 12

<optimal play: Very sad to read of Daniel's passing. My condolences to his family.>

I have not posted further on Daniel's forum out of respect.

Others do not share this view with the result his page has since become a train wreck.

The first post which seems to have instigated argument and animosity is a post by <Dr Winston OBoogie> in which he berates <nok> about something or other and calls him a <heartless idiot>.

This was <Dr Winston OBoogie>'s fourth post on Daniel's forum in a short period of time and seems to reflect a desire to present himself as the "chief mourner".

Anyway, the forum continued with numerous members paying their respects until page 19 when <ughaibu> started swearing at <centralfiles> over the question of <sneaky>.

On page 20 <zanzibar> began excessively posting on the subject of <sneaky> which dragged the forum away from respectful condolences into irrelevant debates.

<ChessHigherCat> joined in with that and that's where it seems the problems really began.

On page 21 <Big Pawn> expressed the view of (I suspect) the bulk of chessgames members when he questioned the necessity of obsessing about <sneaky>.

<OhioChessFan> and <JimNorCal> echoed BP's concern which immediately elicited a rebuke from <zanzibar>.

<ChessHigherCat> then decided to also jump in with his opinion.

From this point onward the forum was no longer a place for respectful condolences, but rather obsessive prying into Daniel's personal life.

On page 23 <Dr Winston OBoogie> started asking about donations which further angered <Big Pawn>.

Then on page 25 <sneaky sqeeky> appeared which began a whole new reason to start more arguments.

At some point <harrylime> chimed in and by page 44 the whole forum was a write-off.

Therefore IMHO, the main culprits are:

1. <Dr Winston OBoogie>
2. <zanzibar>
3. <ChessHigherCat>
4. <Big Pawn>
5. <harrylime>

Of course they're not the only guilty parties, but they're the ones who seemed to be in the thick of it.

I noticed <thegoodanarchist> was involved and of course <saffuna> was putting his two cents worth in as usual.

So anyway, that's my review of the proceedings on Daniel's forum.

The end result is that Daniel's forum is now a mess, or as <harrylime> so eloquently put it <This page is a potential JIM MORRISON grave site>.

Aug-12-18  JimNorCal: A fair assessment, IMO.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Robed.Bishop: Well if the site returns to anything close to normaI, I expect Daniel’s forum will be scrubbed. I generally agree with your assessment.

The impatience and excessive worry shown by members is astonishing. There is really only three possible outcomes: either the site will continue as it did before, or it will continue but with changes, or it will end. What will be will be.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <optimal play> Thank you very much for your steadfast support of the late Webmaster Daniel Freeman over the years.

You have made an excellent overview of the last two weeks. In time, as Daniel's mother recovers from her grief and shock at his loss, she will be comforted by the hundreds of genuine remembrances at his passing. Yes I said hundreds. At a later time, when she understands this site better, she can separate out those who are manipulating this tragic event into angling for most favored status under the new management.

"This poster is costing you money" has been used many times in an attempt to get other people in trouble, and typically the accuser is just as bad or worse as the kibitzer they are reporting to be disciplined. For a while, the Wesley So player page biography was supposedly the biggest problem on this site, and people were leaving in droves over the content, which was just laughable. You also hear a lot of, "I was just about to purchase Premium Memberships, but then you didn't take my side" which is an underhanded negotiation tactic bordering on emotional blackmail.

The adoption of volunteer Editors with Administrative capacity has dramatically improved this site's historical accuracy, and we should sincerely thank their selfless uncredited work. At the same time, in some cases this has bred a palpable elitism (Historians versus Vandals) which came to a head in 2016 with Norwegian Historian <Robert> creating a list of twenty off-topic Vandals that he wanted eliminated en masse ("axe them down"). This was during the same time period where the Member Support Forum was used for attacking and bullying and cyberstalking and threatening for four months, yet strangely these same Editors sat back and did nothing to help Daniel when he was called "liar" and "coward" over and over and over again from April 2016 to August 2016. (Most of that has been erased by now - how Sneaky of him.) Therefore, too much of this "mourning" is truly guilt and regret by Daniel's supposed friends failing to help him in real time. Note two Editors have abused their privileges for petty personal self-glorification, which they expected everyone else to forget.

<Daniel Freeman's forum has become a shambles>

The one person who keeps complaining the loudest about the "integrity" of the Daniel Freeman page has trashed my player page many times, and he has trashed my chessforum many times. He knows, and she knows.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Once again, <tpstar>'s first post on Daniel Freeman's death:

<Jul-30-18 chessforum

So Daniel Freeman spends his life building a wonderful chess site for the world to enjoy, then one of his final memories here is watching career criminal <Mark Finan> drive Nigel Short away. It doesn't get any worse than this.

I said you were a lost cause and I was right.>

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <I said you were a lost cause and I was right.>

That was not meant for you. It was for her.

You don't know your site history. These coalitions against me never work. Never.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: It was your first post after Daniel's death. Do you object to having your posts re-posted?

I was talking about those who didn't make the cut because of death, incarceration.

Since you void your atrocity it's easy to see why you were confused.

Premium Chessgames Member
  optimal play: <JimNorCal: A fair assessment, IMO.> Thank you.

<Robed.Bishop: ... The impatience and excessive worry shown by members is astonishing.> Agree.

The way some people have carried on here defies belief!

<tpstar> Quite a history!

I'm pleased to say I'm not familiar with any of it. I always kept out of that stuff.

I never had any problem with Daniel at all nor did he have any problem with me.

<saffuna: Once again, <tpstar>'s first post on Daniel Freeman's death: ...>

That was not posted on Daniel Freeman's players page.

<diceman: Hey, with any luck we can make Optimal's page look like DF's Page!>

Only if I suddenly drop dead!

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: No, but it was his first post. In the chessgames member support forum, where the first posts about DF's death were made.

  optimal play: <saffuna> My summary of the proceedings detailed above pertain only to Daniel's players page.

My point was that Daniel's page had become a shambles and I sought to identify the cause.

I did not find any offensive or belligerent posts by <tpstar> on Daniel's page.

I will therefore take this opportunity to thank <tpstar> for respecting Daniel's players page.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: I didn't expect you did. I just thought, for the third time, that readers should see what he posted first, in order to better judge his comments here.

  optimal play: What I like about Senator Fraser Anning:

He doesn't apologise.

He doesn't retract what he said.

He doesn't back down.

<Senator Fraser Anning hit back following controversy around his maiden speech>
<Speech was slammed by politicians including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull>
<The Katter's Australia Party senator stood by Tuesday comments about Muslims>
<He refused to apologise for using the Nazi term 'final solution' during the speech>
<Mr Anning said there should be a plebiscite by Australian people on immigration>
<In speech he claimed majority of Australian Muslims do not work, live on welfare>

Quite often when a politician or celebrity or whoever speaks out about muslims or diversity or whatever, and there's a media backlash, they almost always back down and apologise and act all contrite, which just empowers the Cultural Marxists and makes them all the more vicious in their ongoing attacks against normal white people.

It's important to always stand your ground against Big Media, Big Politics, Big Business et al, and not back down, no matter how much vitriol they throw at you.

That's what I like about this bloke.

<Bob Katter has backed his senator Fraser Anning, saying his widely-condemned speech was “solid gold”, while hitting out at Muslims and Australia’s migration policy.>

<“I love it. It’s on fire. Ninety percent of Australians have been waiting for someone to say it, and believe it.”>

At least 90%

Probably closer to 95%

Of course "Australians" excludes Cultural Marxists.
