A lot of you guys turn down games with players because u look at their rateing and if you c a low number you wont play.I'll play anyone,screw your points.low score doesn't mean you are a poor player,high score doesn't mean u r a good player.dont focus so much on the rating. U never know who u r up against
atilladapawn007, I'm sorry you're having trouble getting a game of chess around here. I hope you have better luck getting sporting opponents in the future. Don't worry: not everyone views rating points as things to be horded, as if they were money.
@OP: Though I staunchly protect my privacy anywhere I go on the Internet, I will divulge that I am not a military pilot... although I'm honored to have been fleetingly thought of as one. My avatar comes from a video game I like to play.
I got to say that it isn't that the rating doesn't reflect a person's actual level of play, unless they haven't played many games. I wouldn't think it shouldn't matter who you refuse to play after enough games the score should be statistically accurate. Am I right, or am I right?
(PS. I only like playing people who can speake teh engliash) I know I know, I can't help it though.
