    You've challenged the best clan on this site and you also challenged my clan. You're obviously a man of taste. I'm afraid I cannot accept your challenge at this time, but once our players get some current games out of the way, I'll challenge you back.

    Looking forward to the battle - thank you

    There is a tale about these two shoe salesmen who travel to a third world country in search of new business opportunities.

    One man calls his wife the moment he lands, telling her, “Honey, I’m coming back home. There’s no hope here. Nobody here is wearing shoes, so there’s no one to sell to.” He boards the next flight home.

    The second man calls his wife and says, “Honey, you wouldn’t believe what I found here. There is so much opportunity. No one here is wearing shoes. I can sell to the whole country!”

    There’s opportunity everywhere. When we have a consciousness of expecting the magic to happen, it will happen. We’ll find the right people, we’ll move in the right circles, we’ll ‘bump’ into the right solutions. It all starts with that opening in the mind.

    Come join McNamara's Band, Clan 25435.

    I hope it's two different wives.

    has this player contacted you?
    or you him?

    edit: I booted a player once who had not moved for a couple months and timing out several games
    later found out he had been sick
    felt bad

    Yes, this exact thing happened to me. I wound up in hospital was able to get my Vacation flag up on RHP, but on another site I did not. I timed out in a bunch of games and the Captain booted me off the team. I came back explained the situation and he too felt bad about booting me and re-instated me.

    I can understand why he booted me though. I probably would have done the same thing, had I been him. The team also understood.

    No contact. He left the site (and timed out a bunch of clan games). He is no longer a member, two months here and gone.

    If he is not a member after only two months - he must have contacted Feedback and asked to be removed. Otherwise his membership would still be up even with him not moving.

    I think he has had past identities (me too) and hopefully he comes back in some carnate. Good chap.

    Sir,
    I believe we have many on here with with more than one identity. Just my humble opinion. Call it a gut feeling if you will.

    Lifelong personal morality (ethics?) is a river traveled with many whirlpools.

    Is it ethicly acceptable to begin playing here after a time away and introduce a new identity? Is that behaviour acceptable by the community? I believe it is as long as both identities are not active at the same time. That is my Interweb chess website personal code of ethics.

    Some will disagree. Some will ask why. At my age I never ask why anymore. I have enough friends and have seen enough of life to know you rarely get an honest answer to the question “why”. I don’t mean intentional dishonesty; I mean “the truth” can be a wraith in the shadows inside even the most honorable.

    For others, truth is a long lost cousin, haven’t seen the guy in years.
