Jan-30-12  King Death: < Rob Lob Law: Who is the AJ you speak of? I looked him up in the FIDE database and nothing came up...>

This isn't surprising, there are other players that did most of their playing before FIDE lowered the standards for getting a rating (like me but I managed somehow or other). <AJ> was more than likely a FIDE ~2200 player which was what you needed to be to get published for a long time. When FIDE changed their parameters I don't know but it's a sure thing that if <AJ> played in a FIDE event or two anywhere today, he'd have no problem. Even somebody much weaker could do that.

  Troller: I have never played a FIDE event, let alone an elo rated event, and yet I am to be found on the FIDE website.

This game is turning into a narrative of its own, always amusing to follow.

Jan-30-12  King Death: <troller> Just now when looking up a couple of players on that site I ran into the same thing.

  theagenbiteofinwit: First post of the month on this game. I'm going to answer some of my personal email.

<Prince Abdul Hassan Akimba>-I am sorry about your plight, but I'd feel uncomfortable transferring money to Nigeria. My chess coach is in Europe and when I wire money to him they really look at me weird at my bank.

<Dr. Smith>-I'm single right now, so I don't need any viagra at the moment, but thanks for the offer. It is amazing that there is a female equivalent of the drug though now. Perhaps it's a pic of LMAJ?

<>-I'll move when I'm ready.

<redhotpawn>-Same for you.

<USCF>-I know I have to renew my membership at the end of the month. And I'm broke so I'm not buying anything.

<NewInChess>-Same to you, have you checked the exchange rate lately?

<Victoria's Secret>-Okay look, I bought my gf something from your store ONCE and IT WAS NOT FOR ME. There is no reason to bombard my inbox every month. I promise you carry nothing whatsoever that I'll "look sexy in."

<USCF>-I am not interested in participating in the All-Girl state championship.

<twitter>-most of these followers are not real people, but links to dirty websites.

<Prince Raman Husta Ofastka>-If you guys have so much money, why not contact the UN as opposed to random people with email accounts?

<Amazon>-Thank you, I have enough investing books at the moment. And yes I love to read Science Fiction, but I'm being judicious with the money right now. And I'm really good on opening books, although the Openings According to Anand vol. 500 would complete the collection...

Well that's got it.

Feb-01-12  King Death: The last post makes me jealous, I haven't had one of them Nigerians send me a email promising me a bunch of money in at least a week!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <King Death> Sucks to be you, I've gotten so much $$$$ from the Nigerians, I am spending them on Rolex and Canadian Cialis/Viagra!
Feb-01-12  Robed.Bishop: <Wanna Be> You selfish bastard! There's a young girl in England who's parents just died tragically, of course, and she needs investing help and help getting the rest of her money released. I'll forward her email to you.
Feb-01-12  MORPHYEUS: theagentbit is riotously funny. Heh
Feb-01-12  King Death: <WannaBe> Yeah, I'll just have to suck it up and get a life or something.
Feb-01-12  TheFocus: <theagentbit is riotously funny. Heh>

Yeah, that was pretty darn funny.

Mar-10-12  brankat: Thirty-eight days without kibitzing here. Must be a record.
Mar-10-12  JoergWalter: <brankat> you just broke the record. btw, does anybody know whether <LMAJ> is serving another term of probation?
Mar-10-12  King Death: No, this came out on his page just after the week's vacation ended,

<LIFE Master AJ: For my part, I am done fooling around!!!!!

There are LAWS in place to prevent stalking and cyber-stalking ... and I plan on using those to put a PERMANENT end to the crap from the trolls. (One way or the other.)>

Mar-10-12  brankat: Sounds serious. The Troop will need a lawyer :-)
Mar-10-12  King Death: <brankat> Dial up a number in Chitown will you?
Mar-10-12  brankat: <King Death> Actually we have some very capable lawyers right here, at CG. Our fellow kibitzers, good friends, too. Would most likely be happy to work pro bono (in this case) :-)
Mar-11-12  TheFocus: The best thing about the suspension is that <AJ> doesn't show his face much. Someone said the probation would hurt him more than the Troop. I think he was just surprised that the Admins would punish him too, after years of letting him get away with his foolishness.

I think that <AJ> should stay, but he should leave that smug arrogantness behind; and let the whole <I'm a Life Master and you're not> thing better left unsaid.

No one cares about that title, except him.

I'm not trying to be mean here, but that is the way it is.

Mar-11-12  JoergWalter: <TheFocus> our friend had a little emotional outburst on the page. His post got deleted. Ever since there is silence, again.
Mar-11-12  TheFocus: I thought it was sour grapes on <AJ>'s part to mention <FSR> like that. Some of us, me especially, deserved suspension, but not <FSR>.
Mar-11-12  Jim Bartle: Hold on. Did AJ really post something that was deleted after he returned from suspension? I missed it if he did.
Mar-11-12  JoergWalter: not only that <FSR> should have been added the the cg7. also he claims that the admin's give a "rat's...." about fairness if I remember correctly.
Mar-11-12  King Death: Yes, I saw the post in re <FSR> too and laughed. It reminded me of the second grader that gets caught and rats out the other kid instead of taking his lumps.
Mar-11-12  TheFocus: Here is the post. Still get the giggles when I read it.

<LIFE Master AJ>< You missed one.

When you made your little "hit list," you forgot <FSR>. He certainly should have been in the group that was warned.

But I am pretty sure you don't give a rat's ____ about being fair ...>

Dec-24-22  Helloween: I'm amazed this thread still exists, and hasn't been commented on in a decade. Seems incredibly relevant with the current scandals in the chess world.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Helloween>, the kibitzing was closed for a number of years and only reopened on <AJ>'s games in recent months.
