Since reading isn't entertaining, writers can't be entertainers. :-p
I have been on chess.com for about 1 1/2 years. In that time I have been drawn into several religious debates, political debates and debates about cheat detection. In fact the cheaters forum is basically everyone attack the last person banned. If there are no interesting new banned players then those on that forum attack each other. Yes I do not run from debates so much of the above is partially my fault being a participate in these debates but it seems everything is a big controversy on this site. It is amazing any one has time to play chess. lol. We should rename the site debate.com. So yes Batgirl you have suceeded in being an entertainer once again even though you, I and several others are shocked how it came about. Now when are you posting the blindfolded monkey game? ROFL. The games were interesting. Thanks.
There are a lot of tiny things that bother me, that most people wouldn't even notice. For example, one time I complained to a titled player that he didn't update his rating, which had dropped 40 points or so, because I thought he wanted to make himself look as good as possible by only showing the highest OTB rating he had achieved. It's probably insignificant to most people, but somehow it irritated me enough to say something about it. I understand it's not a big deal to most people, but everything is relative -- what's not a big deal to one person, could be a big deal to someone else.
I think reading can be entertaining. This whole debate which is in writing has been entertaining. Beyond this a writer can also be an entertainer when not writing.
That last one sounds like something a teenager would do. Actually, that seems to make sense, now that I think about it.
I was joking. Who reads internet forums and doesn't like reading? :-p
I don't know but I seen some people interact of the forum who seem almost incapable of reading.
Hey Elubas, I wasn't trying to insult you. You're pretty insightful, really.
Perhaps you should express yourself more clearly and concisely then.
Could you please be a little clearer and a bit more precise?
Yeah, but maybe he could be more insightful if he really tried. Hey Looby, are you holding out on us? This is the kind of thing that can really piss me off.
Btw this is one of the weirdest goofiest threads ever. I'm serious.
It's the time of year, season of goodwill and all that.
Happy Valentines day, everybody!
I thought that was in February? It's October.
