It's nice to be missed. Well, at least the guys over at chess.com apparently miss some of their members. From time to time, I get this email from them asking where I went. Then the email says, "we haven't seen you at Chess.com in the last 14 days and just wanted to say - we miss you!"
Oh that's nice.
I think the last time I mentioned these guys was the first time I did way back in May last year. But since then I've dropped in only a handful of times, like just before I wrote this post, for example, to make a little tweak on my profile. Other than that, there's just no reason to go - speaking for myself, of course.
The site is just a bit, too, I don't know. American. Too distant from the main action. Maybe if they can start putting some legs on the ground in the big events like those folks over ChessVibes, ChessDom and the still unbelievably old fashioned ChessBase - then maybe, just maybe, I'll type in chess.com more often. Hec, I'll even add them to my bookmarks toolbar.
