    What a fucken tremendous achievement. Let us hope that this trend continues for the whole of the 21st century (only 81 years left). Hopefully then the ACF will finally have enough statistical data to finally conclude that its Neo liberal programming did absolutely nothing!

    Whoah there comrade....You mean to say the ACF no longer collects rating fees from the Australian Open? the rumors must be true Dr Kevin Bonham is the Josef Stalin of Australian Chess!

    “If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” Orwell 1984. I certainly believe Moz and the people who organised the Australian Open understand, and can define a financial risk. Clearly Dr Kevin Bonham believes that the ACF has increased its own financial risk by outsourcing the Australian open to them. I guess the rumors are true Dr Kevin Bonham is the Josef Stalin of Tasmanian chess.

    Outlaying more money on guarantess against loss= increasing its own risk. Doublethink 101 -“Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.”

    Please stop spreading fake narratives......Dr Kevin Bonham....the Joseph Stalin of the Hobart chess club displays no primary reasoning skills. People should just believe comrade Bonham and his poorly elucidated story about "...primary reason for outsourcing" Remember those that disagree will be sent to the Gulags of Australian chess.......Ozchess!!

    We've got more than enough statistical data to conclude you are a repetitive idiot with no idea about political ideology.

    You thought that was a knockdown on the assumption that surely the ACF must collect "rating fees" from the Open, and it was a pretty pathetic knockdown in the first place given that it was obviously not what we were talking about before.

    But a bigger problem is that you are in fact wrong. The ACF does not collect "rating fees" (their real name is "admin fees") from ACF title events! I don't think it has done so in my 18 years on Council.

    the rumors must be true Dr Kevin Bonham is the Josef Stalin of Australian Chess!
    The rumours must be true - you are the Comical Ali!

    Certainly not necessary in your case. Anything we publish may as well be a secret kept from you given your poor attention levels.

    I certainly believe Moz and the people who organised the Australian Open understand, and can define a financial risk.
    How is that relevant to anything? The thing with MOZ is that when he knows what is going on he posts as if he doesn't.

    Remaining drivel snipped as it was incoherent frothing devoid of any new content.

    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.
