    Technically it is simply a new subforum. At worst it is silly. Stupid is a strong word.

    In the long run, perhaps it goes nowhere but it didn't really involve a huge investment of time.

    You have to find your own vision of chess, and build it yourself.

    Listen to me but not too much. Have respect but you need to be responsible for your life.

    I think that the most that we could do would be to put it in another sub-forum like CFC news or English Chat or nonchess chat. It would not be a separate chat board. I don't see it as a problem. ...
