    Do you also have a video about how to write many words without saying anything?

    A picture may be worth a thousand words, and a video may be comprised of a thousand pictures, but this just goes to show that this principle isn't at all transitive.

    With respect, guys, may I humbly suggest that you start a new Forum Topic if you're interested in continuing this conversation? Let's stay on focus here: suggestions for re-naming Online Chess.  Thanks for the courtesy.

    We're 42 pages and over 800 posts in.  If the right name hasn't come up by now it's not going to.

    This reminds me of the KDF9 anecdote : 

    Legend has it that the KDF9 was developed as project KD9 (Kidsgrove Development 9) and that the 'F' in its designation was contributed by the then Chairman after a long and tedious discussion on what to name the machine at launch - "I don't care if you call it the .......".

    Thanks for the courtesy.

    Chess is a game of testosterone...not courtesy. That would be mumblety pegs.

    Besides, if you don't like what you've been reading...stop reading it.

    This has been a courtesy advisement.

    You've, obviously, never played mumblety peg.

    After 10 threads in 5 days the OP finally has a live one!  You must be loving it.  More power to you.  Laughing

    Perhaps work a bit on your three word sentences.  Just a thought.  Feel free to disregard.

    Yeah I did.I have the knife scars to prove it. Believe me, you are more polite against someone with a knife rather than a pawn.

    I'll bet a million bucks that Erik wishes he had never started this thread.

    I thought you were saying that it didn't take any balls to play mumblety peg.

    My mistake.

    If you're going to go on an abusive tirade with the intent of getting your account closed, a thread started by the site's owner is a good place to do it.

    Kid stabbed me in the wrist. Needed stitches.

    Another time, fell on my knife. Needed more stitches (on the palm).

    Probably just good advice in general for people to to avoid any place you are.
