I visited Hairulov's site just now to see if there is any announcement for NAG and I was amazed to see comments in the shout boxes asking Andrew of gilachess and Sham of Firey rook not to write on selection. Apparently that is the purview of MCF. I know Salleh of gilocatur also wrote on selection but dont know if he is attacked as well.
What is going on? I have read their postings. They are merely asking for selection. They are not telling MCF what the selection criteria should be. What about sites like chess ninja then? He is talking about the details of selection like he is MCF. Chess ninja is telling MCF what the proper selection criteria should be. But no mention of him. Strange.
Freedom of expression means we can give suggestions without being attacked, harangued, badgered or slandered. When I make suggestions they attack my site with the most inane arguments. They are not here to enquire but to tell me what I should think or say. But I already know where they are coming from. So I tell them to go to the sites that expresses their philosophy.
Their modus operandi is to shout everyone down. You all know that Firey Rook takes out time everyday to give you updates on tournaments around the world with the latest games. He does more for Malaysian Chess in one day than these idiots have done in their lifetime. Andrew gives so much of his time giving you live feeds from tournaments and is one of the oldest and most respected bloggers around. He has helped countless chess players with chess programs. All of these people do it for the love of chess.
Together the readership of gilocatur, gilachess, firey rook and fgm represent the views of the vast majority of chess viewers online and chess parents and players offline.
How dare this handful of people tell us that we cannot bring forward suggestion for selection? Who do they think they are? They can keep their hidden agendas with their lies and slander and belligerence. We do not need them.
