    Two things:

    1. How would it matter if Jesus could solve this puzzle when he is the son of God who created the universe and everything in it? He, like God, knows everything, so your statement provides no meaning whatsoever.

    2. Jesus is not a zombie. A zombie is a reanimated dead person or animal who hungers for one's brains (the stereotypical zombie, that is)--which Jesus is not because he was resurrected (made alive again) from the dead, not reanimated.

    I apologize if you are joking, but your statement could have offended certain people, as did me.

    I'm not much of a religious person, but I'm one of those offended. And I'm with you 100%, in both points. Well said!

    Is there any difference in

    1. Bf5+ Kg8

    2. Qh7#

    Yes, there is. If 1. Bf5+, it wouldn't be 1. .., Kg8, but Qh6 blocking the white queen attack.

    #!!! it's #!!! not ++!!

    Wow, chill out and relax.

    I agree with you, it's the USCF recommendation to use # for mate; but maybe he's from a different country that uses an older notation, where ++ is used to notate mate.  Here's an article so you can see that some people still use it this way.

    It's not worth stressing out over people that use an older form of notation.
