I joined today.
about 2 yrs
Nov 2007 was a good time for C.c. As I recall it was the period that C.c really started getting noticed on google results... Back me up on this Batgirl, you're the historian (I recognize superior historical skills than my own as a Historian)
I may have found chess.com via Google, so that corroborates your recollection RSP
early 2011, i think - had a handle that no1 cld spell w/o a combination of dyslexia and unopposable thumbs
I found Chess.com after my 17th marriage fell apart. That was 1200 B.C.
more than that shld have fallen apart since that ...
