32 ( +1 | -1 ) Small MindednessSomeone posted a new game for rating of 1300 or over. I thought I qualified, but found my rating is 1137. The person attached a rather snide remark so I resigned at the second move. I say big deal 167 rating points. Maybe I should have checked my rating first. Players can be such a touchy group.
35 ( +1 | -1 ) i don't care what peoples ratings are-if not as if they mean much, we are too small a community for them to be accurate. i've beaten players that i should have lost too if the ratings were anything to go by, and i'm much better at chess over a normal board. why people get worked up about playing a player with a lower rating, i don't know...
27 ( +1 | -1 ) Get over it and move on!I happen to know that the lady in question apologized for her actions so why are you milking this in the forum? It's clear from the title of this thread what you are trying to do. drbmom won't be going on my ignore list but you guys might. So much for gentlemanly conduct! Sheesh!
22 ( +1 | -1 ) Mental GamesWhen I asked Mkatris about this thread he said it was a mental game to distract me. If you look at my rating you will see I really do not need any more distractions! Thanks for sticking up for me Invisible Man - I enjoy our games.
