Go up one level in this thread


The only fact I know about the situation is that Mchess did *not* 
enter

 before the official deadline.  Personally, I see no excuse in that.  
At

 more than one event in the past, I entered Cray Blitz with the proviso 
that

 I might not be able to arrange machine time...  and on a couple of 
occasions

 I backed out.  That is why there is a waiting list.  Why Marty didn't 
get an

 application in on time is anybody's guess.  But it was advertised in 
plenty of

 time, so I am basically unsympathetic.  I'd like to see genius, mchess 
and

 rebel there.  We likely won't see any.  But trying to displace an 
already

 accepted program with a late arrival makes no sense.  If anybody is to 
blame,

 it is Marty (or Richard or Ed) as the entry deadline was published in 
several

 different places.  Deadlines are deadlines.  I don't see any issue here 
of

 being fair, or just, or anything else.  Just following the written 
letter of

 the announcement precisely, which is all we can really ask of 
anyone...
