    So in typical Morgski tradition... I thought I'd offer to play a game with an opponent and annotate it after its completion. I had played a game with Mr. Leggett and had hopes of annotating it with him. However, I fear he may be to busy to complete it (if not then send me a PM Mr. Leggett).

    So I'm searching for an expert (must be willing to annotate the game). (1950~2200) Who has full intentions of posting his annotations in the forums.

    Well, I'm no 2000 rated player and I'm not quite sure what my actual strength is but I'd guess its around 1700 maybe 1800 if I'm optimistic... but thats beside the point. I would really enjoy the opportunity to play a game and annotate it with you afterwards regardless of whether or not it is posted to the forum.

    Well I'll accept that invitation as it stands. But I'm still looking for an expert player (I'll gladly annotate both games).

    Removed as it was deemed too close to a cheating accusation.

    And what happened to the Skeeting self destructive wave going on with you?

    Are we to really believe you are now weaker than me, a mere 1700 player? What's up with that?

    Are you making a statement about cheaters in page one? So you now make yourself a martyr?

    Numbers don't lie. If your RHP rating is higher than mine then reason follows that logically you must be a better player than me.

    Sure, spoken like a true martyr. And of course, the US never landed any human on the moon.......

    I'm curious what any of this nonsense has to do with my article?
    Is there any expert player willing to help make an interesting read in the forums?

    Sorry, old beef.

    I think the most likely person to help you with annotation might be Kings and Pawns. He seems like a nice guy. PM him, see if he would help. He is currently rated around 2376 and only has one loss. VERY strong player indeed.

    He jumped three points, now 2379 and #3 on the ladder.

    I'm pleased to see that you are able to make that distinction ( manned / unmanned ). I note that you haven't fallen in with the usual rag-tag element and that impresses me also.

    I so do enjoy our armed-neutrality relationship. Quite refreshing. Martyr? No. Realist? Yes. If I want to watch the engines then I'll go down to the station instead of playing them off page 1.

    If more of the "PhySiQ's" / "atticus2's" on this site post in the like then, and only then will admin take some action. My stance on this is of record and this will probably earn me yet another suspension ( Russ is heartily sick off me and has threatened to terminate my account ) but it has to be said and he has to understand that and listen.

    I have just recently joined this site and have recently started a thread on engine use and how this site checks for such violations.

    If the top 10-20 players are actually using engines wouldn't it become apparent and the suspect players would become banned from this site? How can such accusations be thrown around without something being done to resolve the issue?

    I'm not a 2300 caliber player. I was hoping to get a player roughly my strength - so as not to have a one sided schlacking. Those types of games are rarely inspirational.
