  FSR: I annotated this game at
Jul-09-13  DoctorD: I tried to link to the youtube video mentioned in the article and it deemed it "private."
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <DoctorD> Sorry, I recently got sick of a**holes telling me how horrible my voice is and that I sound like Kermit the Frog, and made all my videos private. It really pisses me off that I spend 20 hours or so doing a video that will help people win chess games and all they can do is insult me. I'm not sure how to allow you to see it, except that I just opened the video up to Facebook friends. If you want to send me (Frederick Rhine) a friend request on Facebook, I'll accept it, and then you can see it and my other two chess videos. If you don't want to or that's too much trouble, I understand.
Jul-09-13  DoctorD: Sure, be glad to. I thought of asking you on FB before, since we have a number of friends in common anyway, but I don't like being turned down when I ask, so I rarely do. :)

I think insults just come with the territory, unfortunately, these days. Anything open to public scrutiny brings out the nutcases.

Jul-09-13  DoctorD: Couldn't find you there, even under Al Lawrence's name, and I am pretty sure I saw some posts of yours responding to him. Did one of us ban the other? :) Anyway, I am Steven Dowd there if you are still interested.

  FSR: <DoctorD> Hmm, someone else couldn't find me too. Not sure what the problem is. Anyway, I just sent you a friend request.
Feb-01-14  PaulLovric: great game FSR
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Thanks, <PaulLovric>!
Feb-02-14  PaulLovric: <FSR> what kind of correspondence game was this? I have been playing some games at, where you get 2 or 3 days to make your move. Was it that type of game, and if so how do you know people are not getting help from computers?
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <PaulLovric> Yes, it was, and you don't know. But of course if people were using computers for all their moves they'd win almost all their games and have very high ratings. That's not the case for very many people. I think the admins claim, as most sites do, that they try to weed out computer cheaters. I stopped playing regular correspondence chess precisely because it wasn't possible to know if one's opponents were using computers. (They are allowed by the International Correspondence Chess Federation, but not by the USCF and some others.) Obviously the same potential is there on GameKnot, but I guess I just don't care about the games as much. (And, as I say, I know that most of my opponents can't be relying on computers because their play would be a lot stronger than it is. Of course, it's possible that they're using computers to a lesser extent, i.e. for just some moves, for blunder-checking, for tablebase endgames, etc.)

  perfidious: <WannaBe>, the day to stop hitting up the random link is the time when you score one of my masterpieces which sees me getting waxed in twenty-odd moves.
