thegoodanarchist: < pinoy king: Carlsen is 2700 at best.> It's the "New" math. The old math was racist, so now we have opinion-based math. No formulas or proofs needed! It's a glorious time for people with math anxiety.

thegoodanarchist: So be warned, <OCF>, <dice>, <tpstar> and all other conservatives. Jim will try to goad you into specifics, and most likely then use the "Blow the whistle" function, and pretend all along he didn't want you suspended.

thegoodanarchist: 13...c6 is definitely a "class player" type of move. By saying this I mean someone rated <2000 USCF. This is a move by a player who (which) thinks he (it) has the initiative. Um, sorry, no you don't!

  Big Pawn: When <humor> becomes your primary way of communicating, it makes you a joke.


Yes, I like humor too, and I happen to think that <diceman> and <jbc> are very funny and I appreciate their posts.

I just don't have the patience for the types where humor is their regular way of, well, everything.

Then they become a clown, full time, and in essence. I've got nothing against clowns by the way, it's just that such people are not serious (ever) and I find that boring.

  thegoodanarchist: <jess> I replied in your forum.

<BP> I see your point. Yes, there is a time and a place for humor.

Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <Big Pawn: When <humor> becomes your primary way of communicating, it makes you a joke. Literally.>

Here is a good subject for the argument game:

IS IT POSSIBLE for a human to become a joke literally, rather than metaphorically?

I donít think Iíll play, though. There are too many tiny little rules.

Some people must take chess very seriously. For me it has always been a source of fun and enjoyment.

I used to be into war gaming. I purchases a game called WWII: PTO (Pacific Theater of Opeations)

The rule book must have been 50 page long, at least. Standard notebook sized pages. You basically had to play the game to learn how to play!

That's right - the first game was actually a training session.

By comparison, <BP>'s forum game should be easy to learn.

  OhioChessFan: Reminds me of an odd moment in high school. Chess club was meeting in a classroom, a friend of the coach came by, maybe a former student, I don't know. Anyway, the guy had a boxed war game under his arm. The coach, a priest, asked if he'd care to play a game of chess. The guy said no, but how about playing the war game. Coach agreed, it was a rather complicated game, and the guy just wiped out our coach. Even not understanding the game, I could tell it'd been the equivalent of a 15 move checkmate.

Our coach was gracious in defeat, and the guy then told us he'd spent like 10 years playing the game and had every square of the board memorized, etc, etc, etc. He left, and a couple of us commented on it, eg, how odd it was that an old friend he hadn't seen in years showed up at the chess club meeting with a board game, and clearly took great delight in beating someone who'd never played the game before, etc. Hadn't thought of that in years, but it seems even stranger now than it did then.

  thegoodanarchist: Well, I don't know what to say, other than "yes, I agree that's odd"

  offramp: <TGA> I wanted to take part in <BP's> argument game but it seems to be temporarily unavailable.

I know that there were hundreds and hundreds of tiny little rules, so perhaps he has gone off for a while to simplify it a bit.

Too bad. Freedom of speech lost.

Sep-09-18  TheFocus: <tga> I think maybe you should be getting the jitters right about now.

<Dr Winston OBoogie: Well said, Tabz! He's taunted people with all this "Life is good life is fair" garbage whilst doing it too. I think this page needs to be cleaned up, and I haven't looked on Daniel's player page for weeks, it was shocking last time I looked and I'm guessing <thegoodanarchist> might well feel nervous right now, and rightly so.>

You're next.

Sep-09-18  TheFocus: Of course, <zanzibar> doesn't like me so I will probably be out soon.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <TheFocus>

Jitters? Interesting. I just posted something in <OCF>'s forum. It doesn't sound at all like someone who is "cowed" :)

A while back I took a few minutes to "Blow the whistle" on some of <zanzibar>'s posts.

If he doesn't get the same treatment then at least <Sargon> will be forced to demonstrate a double standard, for whatever that's worth.

  thegoodanarchist: I am done changing my avatar.

I wanted something with a cigarette in it. All they had were 1. Tal photos, and 2. a photo with a lady smoking, and 3. This one!

I almost went with Tal, but the cigarette was not prominent in the photo. So I chose this one.

  thegoodanarchist: The "alternate" logo for this years' WC match really does put the "alternate" in "alternate logo."

It depicts "alternate" lifestyle:

In other words, it is quite gay.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: It looks like one of those pics depicted in the 'Kama Sutra'. An interesting (chess)position..

  thegoodanarchist: <CW> very funny! Thanks for the laugh.

Karpov vs. Van Der Wiel
"van der Wiel lost because he chose too many of the same moves I would have chosen."
