The crepes look *waaay* better.
Thought you were unfairly accosted by Trolls for your thoughtful post? WRONG.
Those "Trolls" perform a "Darwinian Public Service" by culling morons like you from participating freely, without fear of consequences for your otherwise tool behavior.
And without them, these forum threads "would be as interesting as paste." Q.E.D.
Honestly speaking, I don't think there's much of a humility/unpleasantness problem in this thread. It's more of a posting-a-game-which-has-zero-interest issue. And a massive entertainment gap.
Oh, but goodnight-lady, you should never post your opponent's name when displaying a game, unless you have explicit permission.
Why not? It is clearly listed in their past games so it is no secret. It has been adopted on these forums but it makes no sense.
So if someone posted a game using your name and the word "embarrassing," you would harbour no ill-feelings towards them?
Yes, people can look through the games should they have the inclination, but announcing someone's name in public is just bad form.
He meant it was embarrassing for him because he accidentally checkmated.
I would harbour no ill feelings if someone called my game embarrassing but I have a thicker skin than many of the thin skinned posters I'm sure you are well aware of.
People take offence to saying gg and people take offence to not saying gg. Providing a name or not seems like a more rediculous issue to me since it is provided regardless.
I know what the original post meant, yeah. And I've no problems myself with people insulting my games (which was done fairly recently by that idiot whose name escapes me). But, it's a pretty simple matter of civility, when you're posting your own game, after all, to only reference your own name.
You're right, it's not exactly a heinous crime, but it's a lot easier to just accept common practice on this one.
I disagree with the idea of eliminating your opponents name when posting a game. If GM's can post their best games in books with their opponents names, then i dont see why games on this website shouldnt include both players names.
Please omit mine.
At least ask your opponent first. Some people, for their own reasons, don't want their names mentioned on a game posted on the forums, regardless whether you disagree or not.
Fact: All posts beginning with Fact: continue with a false statement.
