Re: ECF Advertising

Where is that reported?
I found out in person, at least two not charged for the whole of last year, possible all of them.

One or two adverts have already vanished at least one more will, possibly more.

Re: Character Assassination

Someone has apparently thought about a Welsh chess forum but did not do much about it.

Re: Grading Cheat or Patzer?

It depends who does the asking and how!
The grader, officials at tournaments, a committee ? Not just anyone with an online presence !
Every "suspect" deserves a fair chance to answer questions, as in this country we are innocent until proven otherwise.
