    .......as we all know he used to criticise players who entered lower banded tournaments as they were far below their rating due to massive resignations/lots of timeouts (mainly Trackhead & Dustnrogers),and I have to say that it was a reasonable and right complaint.
    Now what I see?
    TheSlowPawn entered the 1400-1599 banded tourament and who is on the site from more than a couple of months knows that his usual rating was well above 1800.

    Why bother posting a link to the tournament when it's not possible to view it?

    A classic example of "the pot calling the kettle black", or "methinks he doth protest too much"...

    People who are guilty often think that protesting the same activity by others somehow lets them off the hook, or diverts attention from them.

    Woman speaking to press about a neighbor accused of pedophilia: "He's the last one I would think of doing this. He's a god-fearing man and so good with the kids."

    If you haven't guessed, I'm disappointed by this too... not surprised, just disappointed.
