ChessBase...

Post by Michael Diosi » Tue Dec 28, 2010 5:38 pm

Hi,


ChessBase Christmas party http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=6906 , this year once again finnanced by closed accounts of people who payed for it.

For those who don't know, here is the ChessBase cheat detection program at work:

This year for Christmas, I managed to make several people donate some money for charity and use Arena instead of paying for ChessBase products and get kicked by corrupt sysops.

Hi Michael,

The 2 nice young ladies surely make up for that, so it can't be that bad... :)

For once I would like to know the reasons of your hatred for Chessbase. Surely there are many. I, as simple consumer, has nothing to regret or complain. I consider Chessbase products the very best in every sense. Maybe my candid opinion comes from the fact I do not use it in full, just play games, things rare these days...

Hi,


Hatered ? No. Facts. False accusations... LIES !

News item 189 at the Arena page and here: http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopi ... 19&t=31709

many more stuff like this with other sysops too, have several screenshots, after the release of the Arena update I might publish them, except... they decide to do something about their sysops...

I can tell you that if the Miguel Ballicora interview had 500 hits, this article will have several thousend, I am sure ChessBase will enjoy it.

Sysops calling paying users "taliban" ..., sysops who divulge registration data of users,...I have so much stuff, I bet material for 40-50 pages. This will be fun...

Sysop? what a heck is that? You see, I have no info about these things. What a wonderful thing is to be deceived without knowing it! I just open CB, play a game against one engine and that is all. Never go to internet service, no care for the database, just entertained by the voice and the game.

Surely I should be loved by CB guys...
