cabadenwurt = advertising.
In most cases I like to thank the person who takes the time to leave a post but in your case I have a question. Why bother to read a thread if you do not like the info that is in the thread ???
--- Thanks for your support sir !
And don't forget to visit Disneyland when you are in California, plus also Disney-World when you are in Florida ( & the Chess HOF when you are in St.Louis, of course ).
I am always in California! (but I keep forgetting).
--- Oh you lucky fellow ! Here I am up north in the cold and snow and you get to enjoy the warm weather ( Life isn't fair ! ).
I don't think it's America's greatest novel...
Hell, it ain't even Twain's greatest novel.
I browsed it in interest only to find 6 pages of you talking to yourself every few months with new bits of "interesting" information about the place.
Clear advertisement when one person is repeatedly coming in here to post information about something "they dont have any idea about" every few months when no discussion is going on.
What possible reason could you have if you'd never even been to the place to keep posting new information on it? To even have this information is somewhat suspect considering the place is relatively unknown and information isnt forthcoming.
It ticks me off that people like you can claim "Oh ive never even been there!" but magically know everything. You are clearly an employee or something of similar appearance of this place to knowingly promote it month after month when there is little interest in this thread.
This isnt having an interest in something, this is advertising to the masses discretely. Where are you even getting this information? What possible motives do you have for continously bumping this dead thread other then advertisement?
People who go to a cool place, or think something is of note will make a thread (or tell people about it), give relevant information and let people make up their own minds. People with the motive of luring them to their business or attraction do what you've been doing for over TWO YEARS. Continously remind, annoy, urge and pressure them.
And as i answered at the beginning of this message, i came in here out of interest, only to find your pile of steaming horsedung. Your advertisement is clearly working, "ohh, chess museum, the threads got 6 pages, must be legit! Oh wait..its just an employee promoting constantly."
Careful. There's a bogey-man in your closet. Pretty sure he's a Canuck.
Jeez, how come Sri Lanka's come to a boil all of a sudden? They have one too many monsoons or something?
Still, this may be far from an isolated outburst from this guy. Here's a note he left somebody else (I mean, the nerve of some people getting miffed when you tell them their opening sucks!):
"just a kiddo with no skill or manners. Opens with a boring game (full staggered pawns) then gets upset when i tell him its boring + bad and lets his timer run out.avoid!"
--- Thanks for the recent posts. AndyC: Thanks for the info.
OmniCapp: Most of my info on the Chess HOF comes from " Chess Life ". Btw do you read at all ? Imean like books or magazines ? Also are there ANY threads at all here on this site that are good enough for you or are you just a constant complainer ?
Well things seem to have calmed down in this thread now, perhaps I should dare to risk adding another post ? ( lol ). The new issue of Chess Life again mentions the display featuring the Chess Patron Jacqueline Piatigorsky. Also shown are several interesting photos including one of the Piatigorsky Cup ( created by Tiffany & Co ).
The US HOF Inductees have been announced. They are GM Gregory Kaidanov and WIM Mona May Karff. In her career Karff won the US Women's Championship 7 times between 1938 and 1974.
That's pretty impressive.
--- Thanks for the post Corrijean. I got the info from the April issue of " Chess Life ".
"Death Match 26! GM Irina Krush vs. GM Nadezhda Kosintseva! Hosted by IM Danny Rensch & GM Robert Hess!"
