Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

.....the verdict is always "not guilty" as opposed to "innocent"............ I always thought that a court either convicted someone or cleared them of guilt. Not under U.S. Law. As Dr. Hyatt has said, beyond a reasonable doubt is the standard of proof required for a conviction in a criminal (as opp...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

Now, if Strelka is Fruit 2.1 derivative, as Fabien implies, then... You see, if I were a chess programmer and I had 3 years to compare Strelka with Fruit 2.1 then I would not have had to wait for Fabien to reach the same conclusion as Fabien implies. Are there no chess programmers here? Sir, did yo...

Re: Danailovism

one of us has a misunderstanding of what the word 'professional' means, then, & checking up on it as far as i can tell it isn't me: The real answer is John, it is neither of you... It is a dumb statement to the "n th degree" and it is even more stupid to think anyone would accept that explanation.

Re: Interview with Gian-Carlo Pascutto available (english)

I stand by my actions in this matter and have absolutely no problem with the issue being public - which is why I brought it up, anyway. "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."
