    I joined 6 months before you and am only 1067 with 26479 moves, only 20% of yours.

    Just think where your rating would be if you'd spent 5X as long on every move.

    Congratulations on making the top 50 active players. You have shown above all but a few others that you truly have no life! (Just kidding )

    Congrats once again.

    That is good advice ! I have cut back to around 300 from over 600, and it didn't help rating any, but then I am probably moving just as fast. I probably should work on that harder, to get my gameload down, and spend more quality time on moves.

    And sometimes the truth hurts... :'(

    Oh well I guess I could have a worst addiction, and I have in the past.
    This one costs less, and no one ever gets hurt really!

    Oh, Thanks for the congrats!

    I feel sorry for that 574 people(less if you eliminate players with more than one games). actually I feel sorry for whoever has ever played that player, including me.

    and why is that?
    Because he won't be able to play proper moves?

    Even worst if you are playing your 6 games and he still beats you!

    What I see as very odd is someone who shows their best game, and it is against a player rated almost 300 points lower...Now that is really, really sad!

    In your case of course the player was actually a 1600+ player, so I am not pointing a finger at you.
