Bingo Mr. Illuminati! Indeed they are part of a global conspiracy against Vas so that the "commercial entities" can clean up their way to make more and more money... You can even forget about the evidence against Vas: It must have been planted in the binaries of Rybka 1.0 and 2.x just to incriminate him.

Mark Watkins is a "commercial entity"? Bob Hyatt is a "commercial entity"? Zach Wegner is a "commercial entity"? Mark Lefler is a "commercial entity"? Only Harvey is associated with a commercial computer chess program.

Do you actually know ANYTHING at all about computer chess??? Ever seen ME ask for a hardware limitation? Or, ever seen me COMPLAIN because a limit was imposed for one event?

You couldn't fill a thimble with what you know about computer chess, it would seem...

I was not a commercial entity at the time - that was years before I decided to try to sell Komodo.

Simply shows how little you know. Those answers were written by David, with input from Mark L, Mark W, Harvey, and myself to name just four. The questions were clearly influenced by Chris and Ed, and had some clear indications that this was the case. The answers had to skirt around some hidden implications here and there, and I thought they were well-worded and clear...
You gimme and Chris too much credit :lol:

The CB people have a mind of their own, in fact came up with the 0. or .0 explanation.

I was only listing those I had indicated helped David prepare his response to the Ed/Chris list of questions... Many of which were questions worded as accusations. And the idiots on the Rybka Forum can't even quote correctly. They quoted a question, and implied it was a statement by Levy. It was the question he was answering. :) (the one about did this harm vas' legacy, etc..)

Bullshit. You have a known tendency to misspell a couple of words in a very unnatural way. And then the question about "Where is the ICGA located?" Right from the Rybka Forum? And then your "wait for part 2?" How would you know what is in there, hmmm? You are not very good at deception...

Little birds, my ass. You guys were feeding Friedel questions. Absolutely no doubt. The SAME questions, using the same improper words that were posed on RF multiple times. Give it a rest...
