I've decided to leave chessgames.com and not come back. It's simply too exhausting to defend myself against AJ's crazy fabrications about me and SD's frequent behind the back stabs. I'm sure everyone will take their side after I leave, but I don't care anymore. I’m also tired of all the silly bickering on the Fischer page. For Pete’s sake, what is the point of figuring out who was the greatest ever? Does someone pay you if you do? Do you sleep better at night?
Several last things before I go:
AJ: If you really think I sent you a virus, e-mail me a description of the virus and I will investigate my computer thoroughly. Any further whining from you online is simply for ignominious display and libel, and shows you were lying all along and you have no virus.
Benzol: I hope your father is feeling his best again. Some of my family is not feeling well either.
Ughaibu: You were right about Petrosian and Geller. Original and exciting chess. I haven’t looked enough at Lasker’s games yet to tell. I scanned your bookmarked games, very nice.
Acirce: I agree with you about Kramnik. I think he isn’t really all that boring. If people look through all his games and not just the ones with dumb comments like “aw another early draw,” they’ll find exciting masterpieces.
Iron Maiden: There's a Kasparov v.s. Timman game you probably want in "Power to the Pawns!"
