And Yet MORE Silly Rules In Chess lol

DrSpudnik

One would like to think so, but I've found that a lot of these young players have oversized egos and no real sense of self-awareness. (Those who are the opposite are a pleasure to have around.) They tend to make outlandish claims and then argue with you for being dumb enough to point out their obvious nonsensse. 

He will probalby never get a clue and I have only pity for their future spouses, children and co-workers.

Does anybody remember WINDOWS_7?

He actually created a group for everybody he blocked, so that they could go there and atone for their sins. Of course, it backfired, everybody joined and just continued to take the mickey.

Ah, fond memories of Windows_7 and his inglorious flameout! Cool

Thanks for the recent posts.

I've only been at this site for about 1 year so I must have missed Windows_7.

Over the years I have found that those people who were spoilt by their parents tend to be a bit over the top and feel that they are very important to the operation of this Planet  lol.

Well Well Well, we now have a thread on the go here about " Fair Banning Rules " and a new policy at Chess.com. It seems that some people feel that certain wrongdoers were hard done by when they were caught and all should be forgiven, could be interesting.

I thought Windows_7 is WindowsEnthusiast now.

Oh I see, the old come back with a new name ploy ( as a famous Detective would say ). Laughing

I think he got tired of upgrading, so he went more generic. Wink

Thanks for the posts Corrijean.

I see that the " Fair Banning " thread has made in onto the Hot Topics forum so the discussion should be a lot of fun over there. Smile

DrSpudnik: Well recycling is all the rage these days so there is a good point to your idea. Smile

Dang, I missed Windows' flameout. Frown

Well there has been some housecleaning recently at this site, so I suppose that a few more people may get the heave-ho, time moves on ( or as the famous detective would say " the finger writes " ).

I thought he said, "The game is afoot."

cabadenwurt

Aha, we are quoting different detectives. I'm a Pink Panther fan and so I left 2 of his sayings on the previous page. Mind you I also like Mr. Holmes as well.

Ah yes Inspector Clouseau as played by Peter Sellers, I can watch those films over and over. Laughing

And now getting back to the silly side of Chess. Earlier I saw a thread in the forums with the words " Game Mechanics " in the title but the thread had been locked ( which intrigued me ). People like myself that like mechanical devices have read Popular Mechanics of course so I was thinking this might be about a new magazine, perhaps covering the mechanics of Chess. However it turned out to be a rather long argument about how to claim a Draw by 3-move repetition, a bit silly I guess. Smile
