Re: Houdini 1.5 from 2011 has a surprise

Re: CoronaVirusChess

When I was a CTF moderator, the software didn't allow this, but my preference has always been for rephrasing, so, "You piece of s**t" could be turned into, "Your humour hurt my feelings" for example.

The place for jokes was CTF.
The forum was shut down by HGM because CCC members wanted it.

Was Albert in favour of closing it ?

Re: ** Nominations for Moderator Elections Now Open **

My Moderation policy will be pretty much as it has been for the last moderation term. Things have worked pretty well in CCC over the last few years. I largely agree with the post above by HGM. I would like to moderate with him again and so hope that you will support both of us. It is important that ...
