Now I know why some players turn chat off, although i'm pleased to report this is the first world-class ahole i've met here in +2 years. Oh well so much for saying hello to new opponents huh?
NimzoRoy: Hello pleased to meet you and Good luck!
nn: Oh, I'm pretty sure chess isn't a game of 'luck'.
NimzoRoy: I'm pretty sure it is (to some extent) CAPABLANCA said "The good chessplayer is ALWAYS lucky" (my emphasis)
nn: You're taking what Capablanca said out of context. The quote is obviously well over your head, just as chess is. BTW, I noticed your paltry ratings (1200-1600) in real time chess. Looks like you're LUCKY to be cheating with a program. Otherwise you wouldn't have the fake inflated correspondence rating that you do.
NimzoRoy: WTF? Did I run your dog over or something?
:) o,man...forgive him,he is a just disabled and good luck to you
Nimzo, just smile and wave at the camera :-) Don't let it get you down. As you said - click chat no, and play for the win.
LOL. Every few months to a year I come across one of those. It helps to have a sense of humor about it! A lot fewer on this website than on a lot of others on the internets.
That's where you point out that any reasoning above ad hominem insults is over his head.
The bell-shaped curve of the standard normal distribution predicted this
Gee that's a lot better than my explanation (involving various 4 letter words of an anglo-saxon origin) But if nothing else I did find out what ad hominen means - (I had to look it up)
PS: Here are his final "remarks" (for lack of a better description) before I disabled chat
nn: Is this supposed to be your 'rebuttal' to me proving that you're a program cheating coward?
nn: You have an 1100 rating in bullet because you're an 1100 player when you have to come up with the moves using your own brain.
I knew a USCF CC Master back in the 80's before PCs or the Internet for us proles and he was only about 1400 OTB partly or mostly because he specialized in CC. I rarely play live chess now and would probably be rated at least a few to several hundred pts lower (than my CC rating) if I took it up again. Few players are = in both CC and OTB but of course there's no pt in explaining this to people who are obviously mentally ill, or just flat out stupid.
PS: CC = Correspondence Chess = Turn-Based Chess here
Ad hominen is actually spelled ad hominem, but you are almost there now.
And I'm learning how to spell correctly too - on top of already knowing how to cheat here and get away with it!
I think it's pretty obvious when I use my engine (dice + coin).
Few players are = in both CC and OTB, and there's no point in trying to explain this to people who are flat out stupid or mentally ill here in the forums. I've tried. Fact is not everybody who plays CC plays OTB, and not everybody who plays OTB plays CC.
nuff sed Nimzo, don't worry about him
btw did you win?
Yep, it's definitely the forums...
