    What's the best place to find the most opinionated and entertaining commentary on chess?

    What's there not to rant about? Blitz vs standard, man vs machine, the tendency to draw at high level chess, proposed draw rules, the foibles of various chess players, accusations of cheating, etc...

    I remember Yermolinsky used to have some good rants along these lines. But don't know if he's still writing, or where people go to these days to get their quality rants... I guess blogs are the thing these days. If so, does anyone have any recommendations? Not one of those boring blogs full of dry tournament updates, or reports of how far some guy's progressing through his CT-ART regimen... I want to see some blood!

    Since when were rants that short? Rants should be at least 50 words to count as a rant.

    Plus, they should be semi-coherent. Not coherent, but not completely incoherent. Just the right amount of coherency.

    You all suck at rants!

    Fine! I'll stop ranting
