Subject: How can a 2000-rated player STILL SUCK?
I was an expert long ago, really I was!!

I might even be one now (hit that rating at bullet on a few servers), but
even then, I see players with that rating and above hanging pieces.

I see GMs losing 20 games in a row to 3500-rated computers online. How does
this happen?

In a non-Pavlovian sense, it reminds me of this quotation:

To my extreme embarrassment, neither do I...

I can find no reasonable explanation. Sometimes, I fear, I'm so full of
shit that my eyes are brown.... :-/

Agreed.

Once again, my most sincere apologies.

Um, no. I'll admit that I have no clue what you're talking about.

My generation was taught that people are judged by their manner of
speaking. I am 65 now. Gutter words haven't lost any of their
offensiveness. Trust me on that one. Save them for when you really
need to drag someone into the gutter. Or perhaps dragging people into
the gutter is the point of many rgcp postings.

Oh I know. I still remember seeing a very strong GM and former US Champion
(not Bisguier) get clobbered so badly at one-minute chess by a prodigy that
you'd have thought it was an A-player.

Makes one wonder just how far one could go with this game.

I think the time has long passed since people automatically connected
the term "suck" with the sex act from which the term originated.

Words like suck, prick, and cock have nonsexual meanings too. You need to
get your mind out of the gutter.
