I just wanted to say, thanks to Graham Banks.

Graham, you were the butt hole of all butt holes, and I will be leaving here just to be rid of you and your horrible moderation.

Adios, from an actual customer who spent over $1000 in your store.
Sorry to see you go Ed.

By the way, ICD is not my store. I am not even associated in any direct way with them, although like many others, I do appreciate that they've hosted these forums for computer chess enthusiasts over such a long period of time.

Cheers,
Graham.

To each his own. When CW was elected, I posted very little here, but the idea of leaving CCC forever because of one term of moderation never occurred to me. It would be like changing nationality because Bush got re-elected: eventually someone new will enter office. In this case quite soon, since new elections have been announced.

Why in the world people debase themselves over such non life threatening issues is inconceivable to me. Liq.Nitro demonstrated rather poor form IMHO. Really. Seriously. What possible merit was to be gained from such behavior? I am embarrassed for him. :oops: Shocking.

This guy has demonstrated several times a low level of proper bevaior and a frequent usage of such words....obviously he's living and/or working in a place where these words are mouthed like 100-200 times a day....

Hi,


You will be satisfied with the new forum. They all use the same language as you do, at least the founder and some of his followers.
You should tell them to rename the forum to the "open wide ... hole chess forum"

You are complaining about the "speach" of others?

Well, OK...

Maybe better use your time to remove the illegal links on the Arena webpages...

The reason to link to Strelka (a proven Rybka clone) and not to Ipp*** is in the dark.

Best wishes,
Alex

Alex,

Unfortunately you're quoting Wael, but it was Michael's sentence.
