    Ask Bill a question in the nicest possible way and you get this sort of answer.
    But call him a silly b.ugger and you will get what you got.

    Especially when the one making the silly bugger claim is being one himself.

    It is just more a case of starter being starter and highlighting a difference in posting technique.

    Where were you two silly b.uggers when Jeo wantonly, capriciously, and without shame or compunction, deleted posts by a new starter to the BB?

    I will tell you. You were off debating safe, soft topics like "does 2004 come before 2005".

    Your post count totals are outliers for a reason.

    Well their first thread was deleted when they mentioned Lord Voldemort.
    Their post was deleted quite reasonably from an announcements thread. It was clear to them after it was deleted why because gg had posted a very visible do not post here right near the end of the thread following their now deleted post.

    I cant speak for gg but I was debating accuracy.
    Perhaps you just considered gg use of 2004 instead of 2004/2005 a case of "marketing" puff.

    I cant comment on gg but in my case its because I'm prpeared to comment on virtually all chess related topics. just imagaine what my count would be like if I actually bothered regularly posting in the non chess threads.

    I was referring to the final outcome with regards "marketing" puff and not how we got there.

    we are very likely to get more than 100 players for the open. Things are a little slow at the moment, but the online payment option etc will be ready soon.

    Actually it might be interesting to compare the prize money for the Open for Mt. Buller & Penrith.

    BTW the Open at Penrith had 111 players and the Minor 38.
    On top of that 13 players took part in an event called the Classic and another 12 took part in an event called Week1.
