    Proposal to moderate George Xie thread

    I'd like to see this thread deleted, or certainly modded back to direct testimony. 4th party heresay about a person's culture, beliefs and motivations is a bit much. George didn't open the door to this thread, he's not here to correct the record, and you know, the general vibe of the thing.

    Carry on! You're all doing very well.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    I agree. I know some things about George (nothing bad) but this is not the place to state them,
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    Makes sense. It is rather tastless to have threads about living Australian chess personalities, especially those who, for reasons that are nobody else's business, are not participating here.
