    If one is going to be anonymous, then I think one needs to be honest with one's self first. Otherwise the temptation to denigrate others can be overpowering. I don't really know why I think that, but it sure sounds good. 😉

    I find personally I've mellowed out over the years. Learned it really doesn't matter who can do what. We are all good at something. Even Kegge I am sure has his good points. 😉 It is just to discover what they might be!!

    Rusty is a recovering alcoholic, as am I (40 years). You, on the other hand, are an unreconstructed jerk.

    He did not say "forum" he said "forums" which would include most of the site except for the chess part of it, but it was understood he meant the site. Perhaps you just didn't get it.

    "What makes Kegge think? I mean, what makes Kegge think having a subscription adds to his stature in these forums?"

    I believe he was talking mainly about the forums!

    Kind Regards,

    Congratulations, 24 years on March 22, for me, heading for the big 25 next March 22/17 providing I see it! Kegge just doesn't understand. Or perhaps he has a problem and is in denial. I was the last one to know I had a problem, because it doesn't exist until you admit it to yourself.

    What do you mean by "tot"? I don't believe he was giving you a compliment, sir.

    Gee Randers I didn't know that, congratulations on beating the bottle. Do you not even touch anything, I mean like can you not have a beer or a glass of cider or a glass of wine with a meal?

    That is only because you don't pay attention, or read and understand what it is being said. You know like you do in the Clan forum. You have no understanding if you haven't actually been through it. Make fun all you want, I am happy with me now. That was a whole different life time ago.
    Kindest Regards,

    I too was in the clutches of drugs and alcohol for over two decades. Finally saw the light. Been clean since 92. Keep the faith Rusty.

    First of all no one is making fun of anyone. Will you please stop projecting your cynicism, its unwarranted and completely without basis in reality.

    My question was a serious one directed towards HandyAndy and simply attempting to ascertain whether he is completely tee total or whether he can have a beer/glass of wine/glass of cider with a meal. I have NOT attempted to ridicule anyone and I really resent your vile insinuation that I have.

    Does this mean that you must remain totally tea total? like you cannot have a beer?

    If you had watched the video prior to posting your inane drivel you would see that it was a serious question.

    I can't speak for anyone else. In my case, total abstention is the cure.
