It has been fun doing some interesting chess history research here, but as management has decided to force third party ads upon those that have PAID not to see such ads, I shall not be renewing my account in six days, nor shall I be popping in to check in on things.

Selling a service and then reneging on it is not an honorable way to conduct business and I will not associate myself with any business that acts in such a manner.

jnpope: They sold me a service and now want to take my money AND take an advertisers money? Screwing over the userbase will not be profitable in the long run. If CG needs the cash then they can do the damn math, figure out the financial point where you can still sell the services offered and

jnpope: WTH is up with showing me third party ads? I thought the whole point of purchasing a Premium Membership was so I could turn that junk off? Do not display 3rd party ads is 100% checked, but yet I'm seeing advertisements that link to "decodechess.com/ref/43" all over the site. ...

jnpope: He is a tempting suspect, but I would love to find a chess article referencing him as Ed. McCutcheon at least once.

jnpope: <Assuming this is the original marker.> Nice guess, but no, his grave marker was originally just inscribed with his name. That marker you linked to was created for a re-dedication ceremony held back in June 2006 (the centennial of his death). The hoaxer gets points for ...

jnpope: I only ever see former players at various casinos. I've bumped into a few folks from the Grand Rapids mini-swiss days, Smeckert and Triplett, out at Firekeepers. I'm rather surprised Noren didn't recognize you. You were such a central figure in the MCA. Now me? I'm shocked whenever ...
