    Open post to Jenni Oliver

    Dear Jenni,

    You are a breath of fresh air in the squalid cess pit of male dominated chess politics. I am sorry that you you felt so out of step with the other mods that you needed to quit.

    While you and I have not aways agreed, on most matters I have sided with you. I don't know if you were or were not on the side to give me a perminant ban, but it does not matter to me. If you banned banned me, I probably deserved it. I trust you and your judgement. Please reconsider your resignation from being a moderator.

    Um, not quite. Read more carefully.

    It became a matter of principle with me. I think if you read the whole of the "Moderation of an unmoderated thread" thread carefully, my reasons are clear. I also didn't use words lightly. There is a technical difference between the word "mod" and the word "admin".

    Realistically not much will change, as I didn't do that much moderating anyway - perhaps just brought a slightly different perspective to some of the internal moderator debates.

    As far as general posting goes, I don't intend to stop handing out my opinion (whether wanted or not )

    There have been times when I could quite happily have seen you off the board permanently, when we were having our clashes. However in order to have a truly representative board, we need the extremes of opinions such as myself and Libby, you, ChessGuru, Fg7 etc.

    Anyway must go - I have staying with me this week, Laszlo Hazai, Catherine Lip and friend and Charles Zworestine. Hotel Oliver needs cleaning.

    Absolutely - I am much better at saying "no comment" than doing interviews...
