    T'was the Knight before Chessmas, and all round the site,
    not a troll was stirring, not one forum fight.
    The mockings were done, with fun in their minds,
    not one forum poster has shown their behinds.

    The chess nerds were all tucked away in their beds,
    while visions of checkmates danced in their heads.
    And Trev's mom in her teddy sat on my lap,
    I knew I was to be active and not take a nap.

    When in the chess forum there arose such a fight fest,
    over the stupidest question, it gave me such unrest.
    About which chess set is best.

    They talked sets made of plastic, sets made of stone,
    sets made of glass and even made from bone.

    They argued ad nauseam why their set was the best.
    About the weight and feel and why they passed their test.

    Only three out of nineteen posters, promoted sets made from wood.
    What with the deforestation, the carbon footprint was not good.

    I sulked down in disgust, as no one metioned Jaques of London.
    When Forum Mod came, and then the thread was done.

    Forum Mod set us straight about such a fight.
    He said, "Merry Chessmas to all, and to all a wood Knight."

    RHP is still the best overall online correspondence chess site with public forums value on the internet. Thank you, Russ.

    I have always suspected that Russ was secretly Santa in disguise. He is always concerned about who is naughty and who is nice.

    Thanks for the holiday wishes Russ. Same to you and yours. Now let's get ready for that new year coming.

    Same to you Russ. Hard to believe I've been here since Oct. 2006! 8 years and counting. I must like this chess site. 😉
