Mr. Theron: I like a lot your chess program (but this is not he topic).
I must invite you to type finger messchess in the ICC. I fear you are not in the
know that Mridul is already writing two chess programs.

I have never found the Uri Blassīs arrogance as well as his weak arguments as a
useful thing. I only think it is a waste of time to try to discuss a topic with

This is your opinion. I agree your messages are very useful butyour postings has
a galactic distance from the Uri Blassī "objectivity". Scientific? He uses words
such as "I believe in something" (nothing is concrete for Uri Blass).

I think it is better you also refrain to suggest and to judge people without a
strong basement and you should investigate the professional profile of Mridul
instead of defending Uri Blass.

Uri Blass should have the capacity of defending himself or Am I wrong?
