Actually try being with him in the same room once. Like I had the displeasure of doing, about 25 years ago.

For some reason I get the sense that he felt the same.

TheRealBlueSwan, Ben makes political insults all the time, and in one of his most famous streams, was making abortion jokes. Is this good for the 7 year olds in the class?

magictwanger, I just spoke about matter-of-fact details, so no "dumb comments." You tried to challenge people here, implying they were liars. That's acting in bad faith. Anyway, we know how fat, stupid, toxic, and nasty bad teeth Ben Finegold is. The only good news is that he won't make it 5 more years because he isn't smart enough to understand nutrition or disciplined enough to stop eating so much. So at least we'll be done with his gross nastiness soon.

OK,so now I tried to challenge people here?Um,where did I do that?Man! Are you taking things out of context! I "never" meant anything other than feeling "maybe" Finegold was getting a bad rap,because I saw no evidence from any of his videos.All I did was to ask if any evidence existed...Simply from a curiosity stand point....That's it! Moving forward,I don't care to further the discussion with you,because you come off as simply way too emotional and defensive.....Good bye.

So, Bot4ker encouraged physical violence against Feingold at least 3 times.  I pointed that out and suggested that people report him.  Chess.com, instead of doing something about this troll, made my posts disappear!

Its as if chess.com is encouraging this sort of rhetoric and and abusive language that is clearly against forum guidelines.  This is a thread with no other purpose than to attack and smear Ben Feingold.  It is crazy that Chess.com still keeps it open, and not only that, but deletes posts that don't go with the flow of vile insults.  

BTW check out Bot4kers profile.  He doesn't even play chess.  He's a loser troll only here to stir up shit.

My favorite thing about Ben is how he has to mention hes a vegetarian in almost every video like it has done him alot of good.

I know this is an old thread but I love his videos and humor. He got me into chess. I just started playing like 3 months ago. Struggling at 500 elo (yes, I am bad) , watching his content for 3 days, I'm up to 800. I think he is an universal treasure.
