No regrets.

Good for you, that is your opinion! Not everyone shares the same views. (not to be rude although, you have your own liking to the opening and I respect that, but for some people, it's boaring. For the rest, they either find it exiting, or have their own opinion.

Looking at your games, you play the Alapin Sicilian which is a lot different than the Open Sicilian which is active and dynamic. The Alapin is for players who want to play boring chess and want to avoid 'theory'. If you play the Open, I guarantee you will have have a better experience and I recommend analyzing your games to learn the best continuations as you don't have premium so use Lichess

Hey, I like the Open Sicilian a lot! It's just, some people find it boring, and some people don't. PERSONAL PREFERENCE! NOT EVERYONE SHARES THE SAME VIEWS AS YOU, OK???

Dude literally called sicilian boring xd

i saw this forum some while back (when i didnt play sicilian that much)

now coming back to this

it cringes me soo hard 

Again, It's a matter of; personal preference!

example:

person 1: The Sicilian! This should be fun.

person 2: Darn it! he played c5, the positional mess!

i do hate it as it has some complications.. but we should just know its theory thats all
