    I cannot believe that you actually said this on Ozchess. Unbelievable.

    I thank the dishonourable member for the question. The answer is that george was elected as a moderator in a by-election in 2014. You voted for him. Although his term expired at the end of 2014 together with that of all the other moderators at that time, Just2Good has failed to commission fresh elections which are now almost four years overdue, and as a result those elected in 2014 have simply retained their powers.
    Note: I have poster antichrist on ignore. On no account should anyone assume that I agree with, or am unable to refute, any comment by poster antichrist, simply because I have not responded to it. Chances are I have not even seen it. (NB Quoting posts by antichrist to try to get around this issue will mostly be ineffective). I am also sometimes denied the ability of reply to false accusations in the shoutbox.

    Now George why don't you apply the same courtesy to other posters who get abused?

    Hi Antichrist,

    I don't moderate everyone as the old hands here seem to want to keep animosities started some 15 years ago going. In fact if some of these slanging matches did not exist there wouldn't be a lot happening here. That is not to say that some of these battles haven't been justified by one or other combatants but they get very very willing and express the emotion not necessarily logic of various posters. I have no intention of getting involved in these exchanges where both parties understand the rules , or lack of them - that seems to be the culture of this site. In my case I have made it plain in the past I will endeavour to not personally insult anyone and I expect the same courtesy. People can say I am wrong - and provide evidence that is fair enough but don't insult me - I don't accept nastiness as being normal either give or take and if that makes me precious then so be it.

    Hi George, the same used to take place on another forum and I had a tried and tested formula for a circuit breaker. I would provide a scenario of schoolgirls bitching out in the playground - Hydra pulled my bra strap, FG kicked me in the balls, Hydra stinks of BO and on it went and it often worked. Matt Sweeney was a big time operator back then.

    Not about language. About your attitude of initiating abuse against others without even remotely proportionate, or usually any, provocation. Exactly the same reason I started calling you out 15 years ago and have been calling you out ever since.

    Trying to become an ACF member is like trying to ride the cucumber.

I'm probably not even 1300FIDE rated (although ChessTempo predicts me to be almost 1400 - which is a joke), but it's hard to know since I never played in an OTB tournament.

    I'm from Brisbane, and would like to know the following:

    How do I become a member of ACF? Do I just have to go to an event, sign up and then after the tournament I get my ID? How do I get into FIDE? Is ACF part of FIDE, or completely different?

    Is there any place I can do this registration for ACF online? Also, are the only tournaments officially recognised by ACF the ones on State Chess Associations websites? (CAQ in my example)
    You become a member of the ACF by accepting one of the many voluntary positions offered to any desiring reader of the ACF Newsletter.

    If you can't find the ACF Newsletter yourself, I seriously doubt you have the competency for the voluntary position.

    As for events...you have to give up all electronic devices, including watches, pens, glasses and jewellery, at the door. To get an ID, please have your fingerprint taken.

    You can get into FIDE by sucking up to whoever is in power, kissing their ass and doing their dirty work. It worked for the ranga.

    I'm too bored by you to answer your other questions.

    If you are from Brisbane, then why do you have Conneticut (spelt incorrectly) in your profile?
