What is wrong with chess players??
Why does it seem that very few think before making rash decisions?

Is it no longer possible to accept a decision? Yes, some decisions may be wrong, but do people realise that in some cases it can lead to further problems down the track??

Just a thought ...

That's why we have arbiters. Independent arbiters.

I wonder if it was aimed at me for whinging to FIDE?

But then I should not consider myself at centre of universe.

You have to be kidding!

Nearly everyone of them conducts an MRI, and blood pathology test on the beast before commiting to a line. I have never met a more calculating bunch. Every angle, every counter is concidered. That is why this BB is so much fun. (I win some, I lose some. But that is OK by me.) They try so hard to be in the winning position.

As for this chapter (thread), NSWCA should pubically resign this chapter. There is no shame in losing well, the shame is in losing like a brat.

Well yes ... perhaps self-explanatory ... but that point seems to have been lost on most ...

Kerry, what are you talking about?
Ah ... perhaps leaving that question unanswered is the best thing to do ... needless to say, its a general complaint and applies to more than one event, both in recent times as well as the past ...

Brilliant! Complain about there being too many complaints! That'll fool 'em.

When you are not having a whinge it is the whinge you have.

You are picking on players I am picking on officials etc. We should not have argue with them for weeks to face up to their responsibilities and fix things up when it is so obvious.

I should not have go to FIDE to get things sorted out.

I aim to confuse ...
Perhaps I am simply using my own thread as an example of the symptom I'm complaining about ...

Perhaps not complaining is also a form of complaint?

Not playing in an event seems in its silence the most resounding condemnation??

Take care all, and God Bless, Macavity
