    once played a 1850 rated player,i was 1650. reached an end game of oppossing bishops and a/b/ f pawn vs. my b/f pawn. controlling a1-b2(black squares)w/ my king and protecting my 2 pawns(f4/b2)w/ a bishop, this was a draw-HE CARRIED ON FOR 10 MOVES claiming his rating meant he was not only a better chess but also he was supposed to win! Of course "FISHER" w/ draw this game---talk about mis-placed entitlement!   What counts is what u feel about playing this game.

    Oh hell no, Netscape was not self-censoring.  When I was growing up in the 90's Netscape Navigator was porn central for me!

    i think the nice thing with ratings is you can play people rated closer to yourself.  It gets frustrating to always lose to better people, even though thats how improvement is made

    Presumably implying that the problems with the website were due to him using an outdated browser.

    Forget all about rating and just play your best-chess.

    Internet-ratings practically meaningless. Particularly on here until software-users are finally eradicated (The site IS trying!)

    GlickoRD and ELO are comparable but as stated without fair-play controls there is no point getting worked-up about it.

    Sorry guys...

    You can do anything and be anything! Go all out for 2200 for starters!! (NM in USA). Load your PC with Rybika, Fritz & Houdini. Play cat & mouse with the site's detection-systems whilst wallowing in new-found-glory of being respected and admired high-rated player on chess.com.

    The world will be your oyster. Girls will telephone you constantly. Lucrative job-offers will fill the mail-box. Fawning-admirers will send fan-mail.
