    Better believe it, [sic] Back in 1990, a pal's grandma, astonished to find a digital time display on her new fridge's door, sagely predicted, "Look at that! One day EVERYTHING'S gonna be computers!" Grandpa, restocking from the old unit, held out a bottle, objecting, "Maybe,but not EVERYTHING - not ketchup." She snapped back, with arch emphasis, "ESPECIALLY ketchup!"

    Standard reply to anything is E7, than D7 if they keep acting stupid, take the center. I'd have pushed my C and F pawns up to hold it stronger, but she's better than me, so. But chess, Iz goood, Iz really good.

    Somehow I found this video in my suggested. I’m not even a chess player, I’m awful at the game, but I would like to say a few words.This is the most informative video I’ve ever watched reviewing a single game; that is, coming from a background of computer gaming. The last time I watched someone break down gameplay this hard was when people accused Flusha of hacking in CS:GO.I never expected to find such a pure and calm comment section on a video... ever. There’s 1.5K comments here of intelligent pe...

    I find the balm threat idea silly.I also find the lip balm to be symbolic. It signifies the beginning of Rudolf the red lipped’s reign, dear.

    If you improve suddenly and drastically in any physical sport, you will be immediately tested for prohibited substances because such an improvement is very unusual. Now, she was 400 points lower rated than the other players and yet she won again and again. That is very suspicious. I'm not saying she cheated but the suspicion is understandable.

    +Rowgue51 I don't expect you to get anything for me. I'm saying *morally* innocent until proven guilty trumps in all occasions. If the proof *was* definite that she cheated, then fair enough. Unfortunately, it's not. As the proof isn't enough to prove her guilty, then she, following the morally triumphant idea of innocent until proven guilty, is innocent.Statistics can and have been proven wrong, and it wasn't 0% either. As long as it was above 0% (even 0.00000001 would do), it was possible.Also, i...

    +Faisal Lewis Again this is not a criminal prosecution. Her freedom and life is not threatened because people are fairly certain she cheated.You can try to play stupid all you like, but this has been analyzed to death all over the place. What happened at that tournament was all but impossible statistically. It's not incumbent upon everyone you have a discussion with for all time to regurgitate all of that analysis for you every time and every where you ask for it. Your laziness in actually inves...

    So many comments here talk about her being rated "400 points lower than her competition." Initially I accepted that claim, but it is simply not accurate. If she _had_ been so much lower rated than her competition, this would indeed be highly suspicious.In fact, none of her opponents were 400 points higher in rating. At the time of this competition, her rating was 2293. Her five wins were against:Christian Bauer, 2634 (+341),Cyril Marzolo, 2478 (+185),Colomban Vitoux, 2394 (+101),Vera N...

    If you accuse someone of cheating and can't prove it, you should be punished yourself. Cause obviously you harm that person. So you should be fined or disqualified or something. There are actually laws for this.

    +Sebastian Gosling  Sebastian Gosling  As a matter of fact, without proof or belief beyond reasonable doubt, calling someone a cheater is infact slanderous. Adding "i think" beforehand doesn't fix anything. The doubt wasn't reasonable in the slightest, as in this video, it's clear there were moves the engine wouldn't make (according to the engine), and the rating gap wasn't that big. As such, it is more than fair to say the claim was slanderous. If i say Jackie may have stole 1000 quid from h...

    +Faisal Lewis no it isn't slander. Accusing someone of cheating and saying that they have been accused of cheating are not slander. Saying someone did cheat without evidence would be but an accusation says that you think they cheated which cant be slander because it isn't false. If I say I think something then my statement is true regardless of whether what I think is true or not. Slander must be false to be slander.
