    Yes. b5 is much worse. f5 is the best.

    Yeah and a game where his opponent drops pieces for free is proof of that.

    Everyone blunders, it doesn't matter. f5 is the best move to play regardless.

    hard choice:

    1... f5 weakens the kingside but 1...d5 loses a central pawn and taking it back with the queen is just crazy!

    1...d5 is a legit defense man. Some grandmasters play it regularly

    Scandinavian is one of the worst in the legit move catagory, but no where near worst. 1.e4 f5 is the worst continuation for black, period.

    I could be arguing with you that the Scandinavian in my opinion is better than the Caro-Kann and Pirc, but instead I'll challenge you to a game and lets see how it goes

    I believe b5 is worse on basis that after Bxb5 c6 Be2, white is up a pawn and black has no compensation whatsoever, whereas with f5, after exf5 Nf6, black has lead in development, center majority, and black also is likely to regain the pawn after d5. Nevertheless, votes shall be updatationed.

    The game between chessislife and I has finished, and I ended up winning by a load of material, which is proof enough that the Scandinavian is not terrible

    3... g6 or 3... h6 both respond well to that.

    Maybe I'm feeding a troll again here but obviously those moves don't even "respond well" for White in the same position up a tempo after 1. e4 e5 2. f3 exf4 3. Nf3 g5. Also you have 3. d4 and 3. Be2 to deal with. If Black could regain the pawn it'd be a fantastic opening.
