A friend chatted with me on google last night and said that I have made a lot of enemies. (In comments that has nothing to with the posting.) Begins here. Read here. Actually I dont think so. It's just a very small handful but they make alot of noise making them seem like many.
I wonder what their intention really is. One asked me why I use my credentials and then say he doesnt use his. Hmmmm, I guess I use my credentials because if I am writing on Counselling, I'll state what my experience in it is. Pretty normal isnt it? Then he argues that he doesnt flaunt his. Hmmmmm again. How can you flaunt your credentials if you are using a pseudonym? So thats not it.
Ah, I'm a trouble causer. Hmmmm
What is this blog about? I am arguing a case for what I feel are the neglected components in chess training. So you are either convinced or you are not. Simple. Nothing controversial there. Right?
Ah, but then I bring up cases of the kids spirit and healthy competition. Hmmmm, I feel there may be something here.
Lets imagine a scenario. Lets say we are all in one big hall. You, me, chess ninja, anonymous etc. etc. Say I was up on the podium and I ask a question. The question is, who in this room supports unhealthy competition and destroying the kids spirit? Do you think anyone will put up their hand? I dont think so.
Then I ask another question, how many of you will do something about it if you see this happening? What do you think will happen? I'm guessing here but I think a few will put up their hands. And more often than not they will be the guilty ones. Why would I say that?
You see the vast majority will hesitate. They will think, "hey I dont want this responsibility". That is normal. Heck, I didnt want this responsibility. All I wanted was to take care of my kid. And so for the first few years in Perak, I tried everything to get them to leave us alone. But they wouldnt. They kept attacking. And finally I couldnt take the nonsense anymore and shot back.
So, what have we learned so far? Can we narrow down these people to Perak? I havent been to a fixed tournament in KL, Selangor or anywhere else. So no issues there. So can I safely deduce that these people are Perakians. I'll go one step further and say that they are close to or in PICA. And they are angry. Why? Because what I say must be true. Can that explain the anger?
If not, then show us the cross tables. Kampar just did a leg on the 26th. Where is the result? Expose me as a fraud. Hmmmm but then again, if you only do this after I have said it on this blog......
So why are you so angry? Afterall this blog is our co-creation. You did your part and I did mine. And didnt you put up your hand? Arent we in agreement?
