  a) you quote articles like from ernst a heinz without
     comparing with what he concludes is better. So you
     use shopping behaviour to use that what you can use

  b) you claim ownership of an algorithm that is not yours
     and even invent a new name for it.
  c) you obviously do not see that chess is about
     the time you have to find a move and not the search depth
     to find a move, despite that i have never seen a world
     championship computerchess where the arbiters gave everyone
     plenty of time to reach 15 ply.
  d) being a very bad programmer as well because you missed
     an obvious transposition bug in the 'algorithm' and also
     missed obvious bugs in the program with regarding to
     branching factor.
  e) any careful question to compare with adaptive nullmove
     and/or to compare search time you simply *ignore*. No matter
     the person who asked you to do it.

Especially e) shows very clearly how you socially are.
