Petition to wind-up the faux ICGA

Post by HiTech2 » Sun Feb 05, 2012 7:53 am

Petition to wind-up the faux ICGA
It has served any purpose it may have once had.
Now is the time to dissolve it, with prejudice if necessary.
The good name of computer chess has been sullied by its decision and its harsh faux-judicial sentence.
Immense harm has been done to chess and justice by its giving recognition and weight to a person serving simultaneously as:
investigator
instigator
moderator
conspirator
reporter
propagandist
activist
mass-spammer
accuser
alleged victim
detective (de*ective)
independent (sic) expert
technical adviser
petitioner
organizer
signatory
competitor
rival (sic)
court functionary
prosecutor
judge
jury
and gleeful executioner.
Shame on all concerned. You are unworthy even of contempt.

Mr. Whittington,


Why do you want to get rid of the International Chewing Gum Association?

Thanks ^^ The scary (or interesting, if your scientific part is taking over your humanist one) thing is that we now have proof that mental unbalance produces the same result as dumbness. :?

I used to be able to play "two recorders" with my nostrils at the same time.

It is a talent that I have never forgotten. The memories of such fame are crystal clear to this day. Not sure I will get the recognition I so "richly" deserve although

You never know tho......
