    Complete an utter bullshit! If the author really believed freedom of speech was important they wouldn't complain about it being a fucking problem!

    Well, in chess circles, evidence tends to be a casuality of gossip. Hang first, find out if the person cheated later, if you can be bothered. The approach advocated by the blogger might get around that dilema.

    Do you ever feel that you have been hung first and adjudicated upon later? Were you innocent of all the charges brought against you? Did you receive a fair trial?

    Recently I played a player who cheated against me. The arbiter ruled inconclusive evidence. I accept the arbiters decision. However I still label that person a cheat and I have every right to do so since I was a first hand witness. The blogger is a naive fool who thinks that every one is innocent until proven guilty.
