    Right, so NOT a stereotype then.
    Even if a stereotyp is correct in the majority of cases it is still a sterotype…

    Definition from Merriam-Webster:

    stereotype noun

    Definition of stereotype (Entry 2 of 2)
    1 : a plate cast from a printing surface
    2 : something conforming to a fixed or general pattern especially : a standardized mental picture that is held in common by members of a group and that represents an oversimplified opinion, prejudiced attitude, or uncritical judgment

    Oh look another man posting on behalf of Suzianne 😁

    I suppose “knights in shining armour” and “damsel in distress” are also both “True” stereotypes.

    I dunno, but "*ssholes in internet forums" apparently is.

    You can fire off all the spite you like Suzianne. 🙂

    It is my observation of a recently increasing occurrence and I find it interesting.

    Maybe people do just step in when others are attacked? Maybe on this site the probability is they will be male? Are you sure you never step in? Are you sure others don't step in when you attack males? Will you just use this post to prove your knight in shining armour theory or will you consider other possibilities?

    Yeah, Rusty, because you know, it's all about you.

    Hey, maybe dive will put this in my file, too. You know, posting "on behalf" of a man, or whatever his paranoid fantasies call it.

    No, just my pet wolfy!

    He is a great gentle racoon just looking for his breakfast. 😉

    Suzie Q, why not get off of your high horse, you aren't as well liked on here as you would like to think you are. Many just don't say anything as they are concerned about having the rest of your minions on them. 😉 A few of us don't really care and speak our minds.

    Have a Wonderful Day sweetie!

    And people are just IN LOVE with YOU...right rusty?
    It's always about notoriety and ratings, correct trumpy jr.?

    Maybe you should stop while your hypocrisy is still just a seedling.

    Are you Suzie Q's knight in shiny armour, when your not a knight and your armour is bit on the Rusty side!

    Have you ever said two kind words?

    Working on one's rating is always a good idea!

    Of course if you spend all your time bantering on here you will not get much chess accomplished or learn much about chess. 😉

    Have A Great Day!

    “Attacked”

    Obviously you haven’t read this thread, or perhaps you are thinking of another one.
