Starting today February 18 I am going to address all kibitzers either by their full usernames or by non-pejorative abbreviations.

I made an exception for <thdfocus>. who deserves it. Full Member

saffuna: <The disinformation and army of paid Internet trolls were both in place long before Trump even won the nomination.> That is true. First they wanted to disrupt the election, then they wanted to defeat Hillary, and at the end they wanted to elect Trump.
   Apr-25-17 W So vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
saffuna: <Wesley won & their idol lost, what could you expect? > There are people here who idolize Kramnik?

saffuna: Outstanding. Another victory over Kramnik, a former world champion. Now he needs another shot at Anand.

saffuna: I would say it's the player himself who can best decide when to retire. It's his choice.

saffuna: Warrios went 17-29 on threes in game four. Were they wide open or just hitting tough shots? Curry 7-11, 12-20 overall.
   Apr-24-17 Wesley So (replies)
saffuna: There are going to be ups and some downs. His rise has been so fast that there has to be a dip now and then.

saffuna: Neymar was suspended. I don't know if that affected the Barcelona setup. Ronaldo missed a pretty simple shot on goal, nice to see.

saffuna: Usually males end last name with the "ov," women with "ova." For example, former tennis players Marat Safin and Dinara Safina are brother and sister.

saffuna: <The statement <In 2013, he moved to live and study in the USA at Susan Polgar's chess academy> may need to be updated to read 2012; I'm not quite sure. (I've found both years stated as fact on different websites.)> This refers to the biography of Wesley So on his player

saffuna: I've heard of that book but haven't read it nor know its basic tenets. But what you describe doesn't surprise me. Banks use to go crazy making loans to South American nations.
