    Consider it a friendly rebuke, no point in questioning such blatant intent, you either agree or disagree.

    Note I have gone for the lively debate option rather than the thumb button.

    You think people who give your posts 'thumbs down' are "belligerent cowards"?

    Then how can anyone be a coward, and consequently how could making them divulge their identity effect the number of thumb downs that they issue.

    Try to keep your argument internally consistent.

    Ps ROFLYAO was probably an over reaction.

    "So basically you want to scare fellow posters..." No, not at all... neither the fellows nor the girls.

    Just let them be themselves and function within the system we have (until the day it's improved).

    I am just responding to a post you addressed to me. You used the term "belligerent cowards". Is that how you characterize people who are unimpressed by you and click on 'thumbs down'?

    Honest chess?????


    Have you not seen some of those postings in the clan forum?


    Or the clown forum as I like to call it.

    Those guys in there don't think there is honest chess going on.
