    I really shouldn't have. I have 14/16 games still active in two tournaments on ICCF. Managed two draws both against ~2170 players though the second one was kind of strange:

    [Event "WS/O/114"]
    [Site "ICCF"]
    [Date "2007.04.07"]
    [Round "?"]
    [White " "]
    [Black " "]
    [Result "1/2-1/2"]
    [WhiteElo "2162"]
    [PlyCount "30"]
    [EventDate "2007.??.??"]

    1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. e5 Nfd7 5. Nf3 c5 6. dxc5 Bxc5 7. Be2 Nc6 8. Bf4 Qb6 9. O-O Qxb2 10. Nb5 O-O 11. Rb1 Qxa2 12. Ra1 Qb2 13. Rb1 Qa2 14. Ra1 Qb2 15. Rb1 Qa2 1/2-1/2

    It seems that 11. Bd2 would win for white so the pawn really was poisoned!
