Reply to Appeal

The answer to my namesake’s appeal for a website suitable for his 14-year-old son must be that anyone after a place where people can shoot their mouths off without knowing anything or even being able to write should head straight for chessgames.com.

Maybe three messages in a hundred were actually worth posting, and you can’t be there for a few moments without seeing something wrong. The other week I did find a page with two short messages in a row which were both OK, but for the life of me I can’t now trace which page that was.

What’s incredible is that often when they get it wrong – the colours in a 1937 Bernstein-Tartakower game or the picture meant to be of Kottnauer – nothing gets put right even after someone has made a posting on the same page to report the blunder.
