    However, given the Gunners' precarious position at THE TOP of the ladder, perhaps I should remain silent prefering the better part of valour.


    Which was (indirectly it seems) inspired by the following line from Henry IV pt I, spoken by Falstaff.

    The better part of valour is discretion; in the which better part I have saved my life.

    Changing to Adamski

    Hi all, and especially mods.

    I have been asked (very nicely) to change my handle, due to confusion between myself and Jono being easily possible, and actually occurring.

    Therefore, mods, please change my handle to "Adamski". I can't see anywhere in Chess Chat where I can do this myself.

    Is it sufficient just to post this here or is a more official request required?
    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    Hi Jono/Adamski/Jon
    Why Adamski? How about asking for public submissions?! I did.

    Years ago there was a Polish IM called Adamski, and (as an Adams) I always liked his name. Even more so when I started to play the Polish Opening (1. b4) - less often nowadays except v weaker players. So from now on you can call me Adamski. (I did consider Michael Adams, but thought that could be considered pretentious, since he is a Super GM.) And it's good night from me (Jono A) and maybe it's good night from him (Adamski) too...{This time I have used the apostrophe correctly. }

    From Blackadder 2?

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    I think just 'Gunner' would be best.

    To add a qualifier (or anything) after it implies there are other worthwhile and relevant 'Gunner's out there.

    Cheers
