" I feel as though openings like the Vienna or the Dutch (stonewall) are sort of like the prostitution of chess - you can get great positions and ratings points and fly around feeling like a champ.

But people will judge you for playing them. They'll talk about you condescendingly behind your back. They'll avert their eyes when you appear.

And you'll feel guilty deep down, knowing that what you're doing isn't quite right. That despite the quick rewards there's something sinister in it also, that you will need to give it up one day.

Imagine being 40 or 50 years old and still turning tricks with the vienna or the dutch - have some dignity and self-respect." -Uhohspaghettio1
