: : : : : : Let's get rid of Ranks then won't have to worry about 1 vs 2 or the RDM so no more Ladder--would that help?
: : : : : Thankfully not every one is like thummp.
: : : : : Or nothing would ever change...we'd still have slaves , women would never vote , and gay people would still be ostracized .
: : : : : Thankfully people sometimes welcome change and we move on.
: : : : : We are not suggesting to move the world here, just perhaps an intelligent conversation...about a rule that has been outdated and consequently changed.
: : : : : It may be time for another change.
: : : : : SecondHandLo is correct in his assessment that this rule actually causes less games to be played because one would have to wait to play his/her spot...before playing everyone else and even then someone can bump someone and then poof spot game might not be possible.
: : : : : I can sit here for hours with sound on and not get a game , there is simply not enough players for this outdated rule to be effective.
: : : : : When someone finally does come in and ask for a game why should i have to wait for my "spot" ?
: : : : : It could be another hour before someone else comes in...I have lots of time to be here...others do not.
: : : : : Perhaps make it apply to top 3 or abolish it completely...but as it is now some of us feel it sucks.
: : : : : I agree with the fact that when one is here to play anyone and everyone as he does (in no particular order) that he should not be penalized for that
: : : : : We are looking for suggestions to solve a problem.
: : : : : You fly right off the handle right away...
: : : : : That's not constructive debate...that's the pigeon on the chess board....get over yourself.
: : : : Continue to criticize me because I don't conform to your way--It's a no wonder no one wants to write about beating a dead horse
: : : : Was changed from 10 to 5--Still not happy
: : : I criticize your close mindedness and jumping to the extreme and not wanting to have constructive conversation...you just close your mind and say No.
: : : And calling me an idiot and saying I'm stupid is out of line but well within your character I guess...
: : Although you find nothing wrong with your "crap" you post about me? Add Hypocrite to your repertoire
: I don't "call you names" ...I don't like you AT ALL...but not juvenile enough to call you names, unlike you.
