    They are human for sure. I'm not a ratings snob. I can't stand those "My rate is higher so I am smarter and always right."
    Meh a high rate only means you've spent too much time at the board and not enough time living.
    I am soon to be retiring from all competitive chess play. I intend to write a few books about chess, human nature, and the internet. And maybe get in some living. I have a beautiful grand baby I want to spend the rest of my life with.
    Cheers

    It was good to know we can trash talk each other, and still play competitive chess as gentlemen. Cheers Rob

    That is the reason I have an intermediate rating.....

    Maybe we can try GO..... just there are a few good players in that.

    There is no doubt, I play badly...but I won't cheat, so I guess I don't need to be on that list...

    When I first came to this site, I made the mistake of playing folks who where head and shoulders above me in their chess skills...which drove my rating right down almost immediately. I have not recovered since...

    It's ok. I don't count a low rating as a sign of diminished intelligence or moral failing...It's just a game...and I'm having fun here.

    The main thing, Hakima, is to have a little fun 😀
