Seriously, this is a chess forum to discuss chess, well and other stuff. Now if you want to play keyboard warrior there are plenty of other forums around where you'll fit right in.

An example of the scroungers I refer to. Last year at a northern congress a chess player who was not staying at the hotel where the event was being held walked into the restaraunt and casually helped himself to a free breakfast, when confronted he offered a small version of the actual cost and to keep the hotel management happy the organisers had to make up the difference. I could go on but you get the point. Individuals like these should be driven out of the game they do nothing to help improve an image thats about as low as it gets. Lets not get started on the rag tags who walk around like tramps adding to the poor image (we have visited this topic before)
That is pretty ironic given the comments you make with gay abandon ! Who are the "cowards who hide behind a keyboard? " . If someone posts using a false name, as I have seen often on other forums, then that might be seen as cowardly if they attack others. For myself on EVERY forum I post I deliberately use my real name when many don't, for one thing it helps you to keep a sense of perspective. So for myself anything I say here I would say to your face, once again though you are guessing that people would have no "fortitude". Do you work on the principle that if you spout enough rubbish once in a while you will be right ? Just a thought...
"Men who for truth and honour's sake
Stand fast and suffer long.
Brave men who work while others sleep,
Who dare while others fly...
They build a nation's pillars deep
And lift them to the sky. " Ralph Waldo Emerson

Darlington chess club charges £23 membership for employed people £16.00 for retired students and the unemployed and £7.50 for juniors who play league chess in those fees is the £12.00 mo fee and £7.50 junior mo fee.
On top of that you have to join the club where we get a free room from so thats another £5 more overall i think our members get a good deal.Cheap chess plus cheap drinks in the club lol
