    Aha, it was the old title switcheroo trick.  That explains it! 

    Would you play this match with me, Andy? Although you are much higher rated then me.

    Sorry, but no.  I know I only have 4 games going, but even that's too many for me right now. Cry

    All I want to know is what is the German phrase that translates as "pulling up his trousers."

    It means: Get a grip on yourself!

    Hehe, Yeah! Wink

     

    Anyway, its kind of an old-fashioned phrase, I have heard it only being used by old people.

    I use it in its modern truncated form:  "Get a grip." Smile

    I'm still fairly new to chess.com (465 Blitz games) and have found almost all of the opponents polite. I've had only two nasty chats sent at me. One was just silly, calling me stupid for losing a game that was very close and could have gone either way with time running out. The other I just made a blunder (and who in the 900's doesn't?) and the person made fun of me.

    I block those folks.
