I think the implication is that your objection to the gentleman's style is based on prudishness rather than, say, finding an absuive and bullying style unnecessary and distasteful.

So, can we leave out the personal stuff and actually put together a plan to do this?

It's pretty simple - someone needs to stand against him at the next AGM. He was elected unopposed this year and last. In 2006 someone stood against him as President, and someone else as FIDE delegate. Both those opponents were defeated by GW in the election.

Justin, In terms of racial preference, prefering a former commelwealth country player to play for us, rather than a country who tried to invade us in living generations memory is not racist.

I can't see it, what with it being dark and all.

But it would need something much more powerful to shed any light on your recent postings.

Boom boom!
