I disagree with the OP:I don't believe that chess.com needs to be deleted just because of a simple rule change. In fact, I believe that chess.com can be greatly enhanced by fixing up the game of Chess and taking punitive action against all these rule-exploiting should-be-losers.
no peter, he doesn't want you to delete chess.com, he wants you to delete your chess.com account. slight difference.
He is definitely sounded like monster_with_no_name.
I dont want other people to want people to not want people to delete their accounts, and I mean that.
you mean you want his account deleted? I think I followed it this time.
They do seem to have suffered similar head trauma, but monster was a bit more frantic, you could almost see the flecks of spittle flying from his mouth as he sat on the edge of his chair, typing with furious intensity.
I suspect peter is just a parody of monster. Whatever his intent, he certainly used the right bait.
could you please restate whatever you feel strongly about? the commas create many different possible meanings
Ok its probably better if I do it using abstract representative logic.
Let A = people who want to force other people to delete their account.
Let X = people who propose rule changes including rule changes regarding closure of account
Let B = all other people who want accounts closed.
Let C = Everyone who does not want anyone to want to close people's account (regardless of whether the accounts actually get closed or not)
Let D = Everyone who does not want the accounts closed.
Let E = Anyone who does not want everyone to want to close the accounts of people who suggest accounts should always remain open.
Then, [A mod X = (B+E*(D-C))^2] * (B+C+(DQ*))
Q = the moving rating average of people who do not want players to want other players to close accounts.
I hope stating it in algebraic form clarifies things.
I don't see how it could be made clearer.
But is that ELO or glicko?
Or Gordon Gecko?
I think I need a drink.
So...that's what gg stands for.
Finally a suggestion I can agree with! Thanks OP
I am trying to keep it simple and you are needlessly complicating it.
I think its spelled Gordon Gekko.
You're right. Mr. Gecko is that green guy who does TV ads for Geico in the USA.
Perfect. ? I couldn't have said it better myself?
Welcome back...I thought you were giving chess up.
Maybe the clarity of my post made you realize chess helps prevent confusion.
"chess is clarity" - falcogrine
If you suggest changing the rules of chess, you should delete your chess.com account and create your own chess website.
if you have more than 5 posts supporting changing the rules for over 2 days, your account should be deleted.
