    I read the comments submitted here and they bore a suspicious commonality to the same questions posed on her website. A lot of cut and paste, indicating she doesn't have the time to really delve into our site.

    eh, what did you expect? She is probably doing it for the blogging, not for the "community".

    You're weird, man. The last issue of my Q&A has indeed been based on answers to questions submitted at RHP. It's said explicitly in the post. I just thought that Pogonina.com readers will still be interested in the replies since different people tend to ask the same questions.

    Meanwhile, at RHP there was only original content, no copy-paste from any other sources. I am patient enough to address any questions individually, although sometimes I indeed feel like copying my previous replies since some questions are asked over and over again (your favorite opening, how do I become a GM, who is your favorite player, etc.). I get a few of those daily.

    The blog is our chance to ask her questions to which she is replying. I do not think that there is a pretense that she spends all day reading the RHP forums.

    Yeah well, that's how it starts you see. Sometimes logging on to check the forums and then before you know it you've been logging on for 5 years...

    Thank you for clarifying, never mind him, the site is full of ne'er-do-wells and naysayers.

    Ok, thanks for straightening that out! So what is your favorite opening?

    Just kidding

    That is why I am leaving my comments box 'off''

    Sorry Natalia, I think Russ's plan was for me to attract the bampots
    and leave you with the chess players.
    You can handle yourself over the board I'm sure you can cope with these guys.

    'cutting and pasting' answers to the same questions is standard on the net.

    Ask some original questions.

    Cadwah is right.
    I was googling for something, it took to me this forum.....hooked.

    What's a 'bampot'? Never heard that one.

    I think "bampot" is a typo.
    I think GP meant "barmpot" which is: A slightly deranged person.
