    im not sure, but i think that some people believe that non-subscribers always post rubish. The same people also think non-subscribers should not post in the forums. I honestly have seen no post that would creat this thought.
    😠

    Seriously do you enjoy using bandwith or are you that bored because you have no games to move in. Im not trying to be mean but come on!!!

    I have to dissagree with you. I think that this was a reasonable and somewhat valuable post. Sure, it's not really a chess problem. But its intent was to make you think about the nature of chess. Does it have a determined result? It is quite possible that we will never know. I'm sure a lot of people have heard this newbie's question before, but still, how was he to know? Plus for those of us who haven't, or even the one's who had, it offers a chance to contemplate the game that we put hours into each day.

    Yeah, I definetely agree. Something needs to be done. But we just can't make generalizations that everything will be trash.

    Only kidding.

    But notice that I have only ONE move to my name.
    This is because my opponent resigned after I demonstrated the winning method! 🙂

    Statistically, Nf3 is the best common opening.

    Very funny. (But I've a feeling I'm going to regret starting this.)
