Default Pogo is laughable for their online chess....

I've tried to contact Electronic Arts in regards to how pathetic there chess computers are, or
the fact that there Pogo is incompatible with Firefox, but they don't have a way for you to
contact them, so I thought i would post here. Perhaps someone at Electronic Arts has a
thing with buggy software cause NFS: Most Wanted is as buggy too. Perhaps I'll sit down
and create a website which shows you how to beat their computers, and laugh at the morons
running it (there online games rock, but just like Yahoo!, there chess needs serious help) but
the website would also showing people how to beat the computers. The computers are
always in book form, and well, there openings SUCK!!! Here's a good example, and yes, this
opening works everytime. (Maybe they'll *gasp* read this and change the software.

[Event "Pogo Chess Game"]

[White "Me"]
