    I predict a three day honeymoon and then the press will start digging up dark chapters from his past.

    Thanks, RB. The way you always see the best in people and seldom assume the worst speaks volumes about your integrity.

    Ponderable, I'm curious as to how an 1120 RHP Rated Player would have 2000+ rated opponents
    (unless in mentoring games which would, by definition, involve in-game messaging).

    He was awarded $5000 by Brinks (it fell from a truck) and they also gave $5000 to the rehab center where he was living to get off meth.

    Aren't "Tournaments" serious competitive games during which casual conversation would be inappropriate?

    Well if you don't get a response back from saying good luck in this tournament and in this game then that I consider that to be unsportsmanlike conduct!

    Well, I find that some people, and nerds especially, are somewhat slacking in the social amenities.
