    It has come to my attention that in some circles, a properly formatted post in this forum should end with a gratuitous personal insult.

    In which case this one must seem especially subtle. πŸ˜‰

    You're doing it wrong. BTW, that's not the insult -- that's just an observation. You have to set it up first with a line or two of reasonable palaver that almost anyone would agree with, and then you toss in the gratuitous personal insult at the end.

    Got it?

    Not quite there yet. As you might know, in Chinese society the student is expected to do his or her own part. If given 10%, the student should figure out the other 90% on their own.

    Not that I care, but what is your issue with Suzianne and The Misfits? If they have left you with some kind of deep man-hurt that you cannot resolve on your own -- well, that kind of thing happens now and then, does it not?

    I'm getting the impression that I might be conversing with a pariah, and that either we shouldn't be seen together, or that we should absolutely be seen together so that I am not accused of being you.

    In the autumn of this life, why have I been handed such a green potato to instruct?

    What a curious reply. It is a kind of koan.

    Ever the wheeler-dealer, you.

    @caesar-salad I'm proud of my matches. My clan was dead last for two years. Third year we were on the first page. Through a lot of hard work and really wonderful people who love chess. I had no problem matching with you. But I was not going to be taken advantage of, nor would I want that for you.

    You said something that made no sense back then, so I explained the match to you. My comment a moment ago was meant to be playful and nothing more. But it seems you find yourself to be far more than you are.

    Fight with these guys and they will eat you alive. Enjoy πŸ™‚

    Not to be taken advantage of ???

    Robbie used to get you to bend over for him while he stuck it to you on hundreds of occasions. That's why your clan was on the last page.

    Man, getting beaten stupid in the ring has really ladled your memory. Best to stick to your origami from now on. I believe you have a black belt in that.

    I have often observed that of one’s thread doesn’t open with gratuitous insults it is much less likely that replies will contain one.

    What’s so bad about insults anyway; are we so easily offended that a perfect strangers text can pierce our frail defences?
