I strive to be polite and friendly to all opponents. I admire the old idea that correspondence chess should be a conversational and pleasant passtime, and only play against opponents who feel the same way. I like to have fun playing games, and hope that every opponent will also have fun! If you think that games should be played in stoney silence, please do not challenge me or take my game invites. But if you agree that conversation and even a bit of humor make all games more fun, then let's have a game!
