All you're doing with this is advertising your own ignorance in a very loud voice.

    If you really are concerned about protecting fundamentalist Saudi clerics from hate speech, maybe you should start by taking the advice of this one and abandoning chess [and chess discussion boards, of course] altogether. lol.
    Nigel, your comments are a pathetic attempt to deflect attention from what I really said to you. And what do you know about what I do or don't know about Islam? What a pompous ass you are! :)

    I'm sure you know damn well what I was saying to you, but, just on the slight chance that you're really as dense as you're portraying yourself, here's a re-wording for you:
    1. When you're at your worst, you're a ChessTalk lowlife; just like me when I'm at my worst and just like Sid and a number of others who post here regularly.
    2. So for you to copy Sid's remarks with the implication that you're somehow doing something honourable by making a more permanent record of his supposed abuse is BS. All you're really doing is confirming that you're a hypocrite.

    Who do you think you are? Nigella, the dainty little princess of high etiquette and ethics? As you would say, "lol."

      What tournaments received this grant in 2015?
      What about 2016? Is CFC getting another $20K from FIDE to run 2 more norm tournaments this year?

        Probably not. If we were, it might not be prudent to accept it at this time given the uncertainty about the implications of the U.S. sanctions.

          Interesting take on matters. How does a US trade sanction affect Canadian trade if Canada has not issued the same sanction? For instance US trade sanctions against Cuba did not prevent Canada and Cuba to establish trade.

            So CFC voted for KI and got only 1/4 of the promised money with little or no chances to get the other 3/4. Nice deal.
            I remember that somebody was warning you about this but I can't find that post.

              Is this based on legal advice or is it supposition on your part? The CFC accepted KI's bribe in good faith (is it just me or did that sound odd?), before there was any hint of sanctions. Now the CFC should follow Steve Miller's advice:
              "They got the money, hey
              You know they got away
              They headed down south and they're still running today
              Singin' go on take the money and run"

              p.s. And to further confuse matters, don't forget recent legal efforts (Regina's Incompetent Crown Attorneys v Duffy) which indicate that our well-paid crown attorneys believe that one can receive a bribe when no one has paid a bribe. Magical, eh?

                sanctions are a can of worms and maybe only a genius can see the way forward...

                I don't envy your difficulties. While parliamentarians in France, and possibly some other European countries, have publicly called for the end of anti-Russian sanctions, the whole situation is very complicated. I heard in the news recently that one of the forms of US arm-twisting is to suggest that Europeans won't be able to sell cars in the US if they don't go along with US versions of so-called trade law (TPP and TTIP) and agricultural rules (allowing GMOs, etc.). When the Americans want something, it's not just F-15's that do the trick.

                The uncertainty around the US election is another such factor. Clinton is likely to continue Obama's policies - or even more hawkish - while Trump is so unpredictable that many view him as dangerous. [He's been compared to a deal-maker who adopts an extreme position prior to settling somewhere in the middle. But that's his real estate experience. I don't think that translates to foreign policy very well.]

                Perhaps after the US election results and the World Ch in November, things will be clearer.

                  I believe that in the case of Regina v. Duffous the judge wished he had the third option available under Scottish law: "Not Proven", which amounts to "we think you're guilty as hell but there's not enough evidence to actually convict you".

                    Hi Vlad:

                    I agree with the other sentiments expressed here. A better explanation is in order. I can understand that the US sanctions against KI weren't anticipated and have definitely complicated matters, I don't see how that directly leads to fallout for the CFC with respect to the sponsorship. Is this just a "wait a bit until the dust settles" stance or has the funding essentially evaporated into, well ... dust?

                      There may have been others, but I was definitely one who posted to Vlad that CFC would never see all of this money.

                      I also see in another thread that Borislav Ivanov is back "in the news" .... not directly, but his influence. There's some new cheating scandal and it is rumored that there is some kind of organized body of cheaters of which Ivanov may be a part. They are clever enough to not be cheating in every single game, but only at certain points in critical moments of critical games. I bring this up because it was me who kept saying that all chess results are tainted by Ivanov and that his name would come up again. Looks like I'm 2 for 2 in predictions.
                      Only the rushing is heard...

                        Who is exactly under sanctions you've referred to? FIDE? CFC? Our executives? If not - GET the MONEY, please! LOL!

                          Speaking of 'get the money', I noticed some time ago when you were promoting your latest adventure, Lisa Orlova posted this
                          (and received no reply that was noted):

                          http://forum.chesstalk.com/showthrea...211#post102211

                          looking for $250 that was allegedly owing... maybe if the CFC gets the money from Kirsan, they can give Lisa $250?

                            "was allegedly owing"? and was it $250 or $250,000? And who owes to whom? Any supporting documentation? Kerry, now, please provide more info, and I'll deal with it accordingly! Looking forward to your reply!

                              It's funny how Chess Supersite can have all of this money for the players that go on the site but can't pay my $250 that they owe me since early November.
                              Sincerely,

                              It is nothing to do with me; I simply recall reading that and then wondering whatever happened?
