Gentleman chess players
Ok, I have dumped on the bad guys. In fairness, I must now speak of the gentlemen I have met through chess on line. They are many from all across the world.
I am a bit of a chatterbox when I play and a guy who won't talk to me isn't a lot of fun. There are, however, a number of men out there who possess fine manners and use them well. They also have a fair grasp of the art of conversation.
This is one such man. I met him on another site, and enjoy the conversation as well as the chess. In time I thought he had vanished, but he suddenly reappeared and told me of this site. I am quite grateful that he did. This time I will name names.
Joseph, you are a credit to your gender. There is hope for the male of the species yet.
