What does chess help you with? Is it fun? It is such a waste of time and money that I rather be at work.

Come on now... if you were a banana-head, would you want to go around showing people your picture?

Hold on guys. I never suggested that banana-head might be sort of. . . you know, funny looking.  I just got a wee-bit curious to see what a real banana-head looks like.

Sorry banana-head.

The OP has a point.

   ---   I was very very glad to see this post as the question posed by the OP had me rather confused ( one gets more confused as the years go by ). However then I read the post by LilBoat21 and things became clear: a Chess-site set up in order to play Chess. Who would have thought ? Just terrific   lol.

I feel slighted by Wiki.

Did you know that when chess.com first tried to establish it's own wiki page, it kept getting deleted as not unique enough or not important enough to deserve its own page?   I'm not sure of the agenda in play, but it did take a while before chess.com became wikified.

With the latest Simon Williams - Ben Finegold Deathmatch, Chess.com has cemented its legacy in WIKI.....the painful way.  sad.png
