Oh, yes - ask any Scotsman!
(Sorry - in joke. If you stick around long enough you'll get it.)
My aim in playing here is for the most part to have fun.
Seriously, though, that is the right attitude. And as for the latest opening theory, well, for starters it's still true that this is not as much of a factor in correspondence (whether internet or postal) as in over-the-board; but if you want to investigate certain lines, this is such a diverse community that you're bound to find someone to accomodate you. But if you set your time-outs right, you should never need to be caught out unawares by a theoretical novelty.
