We are serious people for a serious enterprise. so we cannot offer such a thing, gut for an extra 200 bucks we can customizee a Moron with the photos of naked 60 years old ladies. A very special product for people with very special perversions.

Which is the expected ELO declination of this new version over the previous one?
Do you guarantee such declination or not?
I need a program capable of losing to my 3 months' old nephew.

We give absolute guarantee that nobody can lose a game with Moron.
Its code is done in BASIC with two lines:

10 write "Hi, welcome to Moron", make your move"
20 If anything played, write "I abandon"

We have an extra special edition with some extra lines with sentences like "you are a genius" if you play e4 and "you are great" if you play d4.
We are planning sentences for any of the possible first moves for white.

Thanks for asking

I heard this version is the official trainer for the Chilean football national team, which will play against Germany in ... 2 minutes from now. I find this is an unfair advantage.

Looking at this extensive two line code base, how do we know Moron isn't a clone? I know for a fact that other programs have used some of these very same words! This is very concerning.

I am sure this will play in the online rating lists and as usual you will be updating your engine to make sure it stays at the last spot for as long as possible.
I will be your fanboy in case you give permission and will post in support of your engine whenever it is ridiculed. Deal?

P.S - If possible a free engine for me to take a look :wink:
