Kibitzer's Corner

May-25-14  RedShield: <I like the gesture on the photo, is very typical of an Argentinean guy.>

Arms raised in surrender?

<It comes from our Italian heritage.>

I was right.

May-25-14  Rookiepawn: <Arms raised in surrender?>

I think something like that happened in Viet Nam.

May-25-14  john barleycorn: he is more in that "allora" pose.
May-25-14  Rookiepawn: And btw <PinkLid>, I consider myself a citizen of the world. So you can waste yourself slandering the Argentineans, that won't work. Unlike you I don't need the psychological support of clinging to a pathetic collective identity.

See? You're a collectivist.á

May-25-14  RedShield: When you decided to abandon Argentina, what was it that attracted you to Denmark, in preference to, say, Uganda or Papua New Guinea or Cambodia? Maybe you're just a citizen of part of the world.

The gift that keeps on giving: at every turn, this poster proves himself a chode.

May-25-14  Rookiepawn: <PinkLid> Cambodia is a wonderful place, I was there for quite a while. Beautiful country ruined by someone named Pol Pot. A guy very much like you, unfortunately much more intelligent.
May-25-14  RedShield: How long were you there? Why did you leave? Why did you settle in Denmark, <MrWorldCitizen>?

  perfidious: We may count ourselves fortunate that the poster in question is far less powerful, though his overt bigotry is bad enough.
May-25-14  Rookiepawn: Hey, is this poor guy always that basic? <perfidious> you seem to know <PinkLid> from a while, does he ever comes up with anything clever? A thinking day?

I must admit I have the uncomfortable feeling of ridiculing a ten-years old kid. Lacks all luster.

May-25-14  RedShield: This is not interesting. The racist Argie's hoisted the white flag again.
May-25-14  Jim Bartle: <redshield> Once again playing referee in his own game. His judgment reminds me of the referees in South Korea's games in the 2002 World Cup.
May-25-14  RedShield: To paraphrase a U2 lyric, I'm dangerous because I'm honest. Because, after all, the very last thing white liberals want is a honest discussion on race, i.e., one in which they can't control the terms. Nobody controls <RedShield>, not even me. Sorry, people, but you're stuck with me.
May-25-14  Rookiepawn: No, seriously. I think (hope) he's a kid. He just repeats your last concept in that imitative childish manner that makes an adult look a little bit retarded. And always declares himself "winner" because you know, kids need to "win" to gain self-confidence. If this is an adult, then I really feel sorry for him.

Yes, yes, you win. You won all. Nobody can beat you. Now clean the drool on your chin.

May-25-14  RedShield: <When you decided to abandon Argentina, what was it that attracted you to Denmark, in preference to, say, Uganda or Papua New Guinea or Cambodia? Maybe you're just a citizen of part of the world.>

Still no answers, <MrWorldCitizen>!

May-25-14  Rookiepawn: <PinkLid> but... Who told you I owe you any answers, poor guy? You ask irrelevant personal questions and state that if not answered then "you win". It's so cheap and na´ve I really hope you have some time to improve.

Haven't you ever wondered the millions of reasons a person can have to travel and live in different places? Is your brain so basic as to think people travel for the only reason of finding a job? Never crossed your mind that there are persons that don't need a job? Or whose job makes them travel to places they simply don't choose? Or persons that travel not to gain anything else than culture and pleasure? Or persons that travel not for themselves but to help others?

You are incredibly limited, and pretend that others have to explain their lives to you as if a single isolated case meant something. You call that honesty?

As a case, you are very interesting. Never in my life I crossed someone as freakishly ignorant, even on the web, what is a lot to say.

I hope you are a poor kid. As an adult human being you are a serious intellectual failure.

Nov-05-15  epistle: It was probably the inspiration for the song Don't Cry for Me Argentina.

  beatgiant: The bio says "He was to meet with Fischer in Yugoslavia under the embargo therefore was excluded from international tournaments organized by FIDE."

I did not know this. What I understood was he was temporarily excluded for violating the sanctions on South Africa.

Does anyone know the facts of the case?

  diceman: <beatgiant:

Does anyone know the facts of the case?>

Never heard the Yugoslavia stuff.

This was South Africa:

<In 1987, he was barred from playing in FIDE events for three years for playing in South Africa in defiance of FIDE sanctions. Quinteros was the first grandmaster to visit South Africa since 1981 and he gave simultaneous exhibitions in Cape Town, Sun City and Johannesburg.>
