This thread makes me really mad. I can't tell if I'm madder at the drunken idiot who decided to pick a fight and spew his garbage on the forums while ruining the mood of a very good blog post, or the arrogant 2100 who responds to the idiots by being "ironically sarcastic".
There will be no more of this disgusting behavior or I will have the forum mods lock this thread and no one will have the last word then.
Karl?! You're back! You're as silly as ever.
Some forum posters earn respect; others earn disrespect. I have earned open hostility from those who have shown themselves worthy of disrespect. I'm not certain why that should cause me any concern.
wow....please block me again cheese.com

Very common and useful techinique (often missed by decent club players), with an added example of how it it might come into play irl.
I don't see how this could draw any negative comment, but whatever.
It was the original title of the thread ("shameless self-promotion") combined with the links to my Chess Skills blog that brought down the ire of the self-righteous.
If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and even looks like a duck then you can be pretty damn sure its a frigging duck.
