Just thought I'd add my tuppence but I find it mildly annoying and a bit sad to be honest. How about a name and shame session ??
Anyway, I'm off to enter my football team into a junior women's league....
Thanks for taking the time to contribute to this thread. I think it's an important issue to ensure everyone has maximum enjoyment on this wonderful site, and can enter closed tournies in an enthusiastic, and optimistic manner...This is - IMHO - certainly not the case presently!!!
To be honest I don't think it's fair to say this person has 'obviously created a nerw handle'...I think that's a huge assumption.
However, it has to be said, it's curious that someone who quite obviously must know how good they are they are, would enter a tournie that - ethically - they should probably not enter.
Lastly, the player that rompted me to start this thread - not the person you are referring to - is now 50 games unbeaten, and is winning games in 11, and 12 moves!!!
In fact I note the only two games they have played against quality opposition, they actually won in under 20 moves!!!!!
Russ. come on me ol'e fruit, let's get this sorted
