Default Another great moment in chess journalism at Alekhine's Parrot

Alekhine's Parrot keeps setting new lows. The latest one is
particularly amusing. Innes copied and pasted a newsgroup post, without
even bothering to reformat it, and called it a "conversation with a
Polish correspondent." The correspondent provided 4 sentences; Innes
blathers on for 17. Talk about being in love with the sound of your
own keyboard....

I suppose the next logical step would be for Innes to post that
argument he had with himself back in April. "I'm Not Your Boy!" would
make a catchy title.


Kingston weighs in with a feather.

I hope readers notice that all CONTENT is removed from these posts, by
people who act like boys but cannot understand any resistance to that. These
people do not have the slightest interest in chess, but wag on about
Alekhine's shoelaces and player's wives, certainly not their chess games,
which they didn't read for their review - not even masterpieces get played
through!

If anyone is interested, the subject of the message was the rather
remarkable slippage of Russia from the world lead. I suppose from other
writing that a missing line of comment is of more irrisory interest to these
commentators, than the mountain moving after 50 years.

I was pleased to lead this week with a notice on Larissa's murder. Another
Russian comment gone unnoticed.

More Pink, anyone?

I particularly enjoyed this non sequitur.

The Polish correspondent writes: "Of course there is a simple
explanation why Soviet era of chess has ended: simply USSR has
disappeared from the Earth and many strong chess-countries emerged
after that collapse."

To which, the Parrot replies: "You are ambitious! That's good."


Even a complete idiot would recognise there is something missing in the
text, and that editorial columns are subject to such vagueries - but maybe I
am wrong, and some complete idiots do not?

On a previous occasion some idiot criticised my writing "non-secuter" about
a cutting remark, not entitling anyone else an ironica; neologism - but, ho
hum - such entrivialisation is the realm of some who can do nothing else,
then blagh about it on newsgroups with other deadbeats.

zzzzzzz

Phil Innes



Apparently Phil realizes that he his a complete idiot since he did not
recognize that something was missing when he did his cutting and
pasting from rgcp.

I think that everyone is well aware of the "vagaries" to which Phil's
editorial columns are subject.

Perhaps you never had an editor, or know what a editorialised column is
like - but let me pass on further trivial nonsense and the non-stop series
of 'apparentlys', [to whose understanding?], and which made no difference to
the sense of the piece in any case, while major comment was on 2 Russian
issues, both worthy of note.

That certain idiotic opinion choses to celebrate a clipped phrase is all
too-Winterian.

I'm sorry, but Philsy, you obviously don't have an editor for your
sandlot scribbles. Or if you do, his title is as worthless as your
vaporware 2450 chess rating. This latest shambles tops even the sloppy
Chessdon interview in cluelessness.

Talk about laughable. This has nothing to do with editing or editors.

This is a case of Phil cutting and pasting one of Jerzy's posts into
his column without recognizing that Jerzy had snipped part of an
earlier post which rendered some of Phil's statements unintelligible.
No editor had anything to do with Phil's sloppiness.

As Phil says "Even a complete idiot would recognise there is something
missing in the
text." Phil did not.
