It does look like Jimmy's ploy has worked to some degree. Even a strong player/thinker like Ilham has fallen. Ilham you seem like a fair person to me and someone who would like to get to the truth. You say in point 3 that you bet that Rationality has done his homework.
The fact that he deleted his posts shows that he knows he has slandered isnt sufficient clue for you as to who is lying. The fact the Jimmy has not uttered anything about the stories that happened at the Olympiad but chose to distort a simple statement I made about parents heartache still did not wake you up to the opening trap that you have walked into. You seem to have no clue as to other peoples motive and underlying intentions.
So how about this? I have Rationality's original posting if you have forgotten. How about if I introduce you to the parents and players who went to Asean? What if I arrange for you to talk to them? Would you like to find out for yourself what the truth is?
You make it seem that Rationality has been victimised when it was the other way round. No one said he cannot write. All we said is that slander is wrong. Check the facts against his postings. 2 points. He said that I (and implied others in FGM, Air Asia and MCF) cheated the parents by charging them RM1000 for a "lousy" training. And he said that MCF charged 3.8 as the exchange rate.
Would you like to find out if you have been tricked Ilham? Many parents and many players. Thay can tell you the truth.
Mal/Sing. Many parents and many players. Would you like to speak to them too? Ask them if they feel that me asking Peter to shut up was necessary to stop him from demotivating the players.
When you are satisfied who has lied and who has told the truth will you now focus on the real issue? Do you think that players who have not played competitively for a period deserve automatic selection to represent the Country?
You say you love Chess. Do this for Chess. I can set it up for you to speak to as many witnesses as you want. I can even not be present in case you feel I may influence their answers in any way. Just let me know if the truth is important to you and I will arrange this.
Is this rational?
Who lied to you Ilham? Or do you want to throw stones at people who tell the truth that is harder to hear. Who are they trying to silence here and why?
Ps: You now see Jimmy who is normally a taciturn person running around congratulating people and engaging bloggers. Why do you think he is doing that now? Is that another sign of guilt from wrong doing?
