    I don't think I'm going bonkers.

    Today I saw some lad posting in a handful of threads offering his services.

    He has gone and a lot of old threads have been bumped up.

    I take it his posts have been deleted, or have I gone bonkers.

    mmm, i also was intrigued, although not enough to bite and actually take him up on his offer. He stated that he was from India, i should have tested him out by asking him a couple of questions in Hindi.

    He was trying to curry favor.

    one would be able first and fore-mostly to determine whether he was Indian.

    I looked at a few of his games, he played OK.

    No Indian defences though!!!

    What was his name?

    There really is an Indian by his name with a FIDE rating of 2147 - now its up to you as to whether they are the same person.

    The only thing I noticed was that he Necro'd a couple threads? Although I didn't really see the harm in it. Is it against the rules to post offers to teach?
