    Oh, again lacking social competence.

    Put yourself in hipercandombe situation, he asks a question and he's got the response that he could be an illegal immigrant, and you seem this to be nice...? It has to do with empathy, not arrogance. EQ, you know... do you?

    By the way, it was PocketKings remark I commented.

    I love how these 'poor' countries always seem to have computers with internet access.

    P.S. If you think it's not possible to play online correspondence tournaments for free, then you haven't looked hard enough.

    Perhaps you should learn not to be so sensitive.
    And perhaps you should be somewhat friendlier to others...?
    You know, social skills and all that.

    Internet access in some poorer countries are state owned, and some of my friends who use the internet use the work computer. One of my more affluent friends, who has her own PC earns 4000 yuan a month. . . $400 to you or me.
    In south Africa there is 10 rand to the euro, in Poland the average wage of a factory worker is €180 a month, what he is saying is quite true.

    The fact of the matter is that wages are low in some countries when converting the money into euro or dollars, so even thought the prices of things in their country is relative to the amount they earn, when buying things from the west, their money just doesn't grow magically.

    I sympathise.
