    Better gather the peasants and issue the pitchforks just in case there is a delay.

    I believe Weyerstrass is a Correspondence IM (awarded by the ICCF), not an OTB IM.

    I recently started a thread congratulating someone on this site who had been awarded a FIDE title, but it got deleted because I named the person and I got another forum ban to add to my collection.

    I thought at the time that this was a little harsh, since the person concerned has pictures of themselves in the their profile and gives enough other information to make it easy to find their real name in about ten seconds of Googling. However it was pointed out to me that every other time I've started a thread about someone, it's been because I believe that they are a cheat, and many people would have naturally assumed I was accusing this person as well.

    I had got that impression, however the site admins may need a little prodding to get them into action. Nothing like a pitchfork up the bum to get things moving.

    I love how all the new members (joining within a month or less) always try to cause dissension in the ranks.

    They always know exactly how to post immediately too. It makes you wonder
