This town needs a new sheriff

Make me a mod and I'll rule with an iron fist

There'll be no more spam, trolling, ignorance, cloned threads etc. Serious chess discussion is an endangered beast here and I can fix that...just give me the power Wink

Don't worry, you can all still have your fun where appropriate ie. in the Fun With Chess section Kiss

Got to be something hard


 What kind of sensible person goes on the radio to laugh at the death of thousands of innocent people?

What kind of sensible person cuts off his own ear and gives it to a prostitute?

Whether because of mental health difficulties or other reasons, yes...they were idiots for at least some of their lives (but who isn't I suppose?). Just because these men created great art doesn't mean we have mimic their actions and to take everything they say as gospel.

Edit: Also, I thought you were banned p187

Did you lean on your keyboard? If it weren't for the /s, I'd assume you were telling him that in your opinion his latest post was a major blunder. But with the /s as well, I'll shoot for "leaned on your keyboard".

Right?

Van Gogh was brilliant! He was insane, yes, but there is a fine line between being an idiot and being insane. You can be smart and have mental issues as well.

theoreticalboy

Possible justification or not, the guy was still an idiot.

chessdude46

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING AN IDIOT AND BEING INSANE!!! HE WAS THE EINSTIEN OF HIS TIME!!! 

theoreticalboy

He can be a genius all he wants, he's still an idiot.

If you think that the descriptions of genius and idiot are mutually exculsive, then you have a very limited view of reality.

 I suppose "big brother" is out of the question?

Look at other insane and smart people, Nikola Tesla, for example.

Cute is not the right description for me.
