  keypusher: You were. I was looking at this site on my Blackberry, which is why I saw your comment. There is no comment that demonstrates the foolishness of its author more than <no kibitzing on this page really surprises me>.

There are hundreds of thousands of games on this site; there are many better than this one without comments. There are many games from world championship events, famous tournaments, legendary encounters between famous rivals. There are games broadcast live which naturally pick up huge amounts of comments.

This is a rook-odds game played 120 years ago against an utterly obscure opponent. You could probably find several examples on this site of the Qf8+ Rxf8 Rxf8# combination in the Muzio.

In short, there is absolutely nothing surprising about the lack of kibitzing on this page; what <is> surprising is that there is now so much more than the game deserves. But if I can get one person to never again post <no kibitzing on this page really surprises me> (or any variation thereof) it will be worth it.

If you do find a game you think is remarkable that doesn't have any comments, POINT OUT WHAT IS REMARKABLE ABOUT IT. Keep your surprise re its comment-less state to yourself.
