However in the tournies you showed there's the Skeeter-factor which,you know it well,is what really slows the game.............
many players do not have the ability to play everyone of their games every time they play.
some of these players suffer massive runs of timeouts (TYPE A).
some players organise themselves to avoid being timed out (TYPE B).
in both ways they play within the rules.
in both ways they annoy some people.
does Type A annoy more people by regularly playing 500 points outside their real rating???
or does Type B annoy more by exposing the faulty setup of a tournament with small or nonexistent timebank?
to tell you my impression:
i admire type A because i think they are simply having wild reckless fun,
i admire type B because they are obviously incredibly well organised, and will always expose the flaws in the glass and make the world a more perfect place.
ps ... second time i have accidentally defended you skeeter .. third time lucky
