True. I mentioned Novo Chess, and Michael Howe could not have been notified and yet appeared within hours, unheard from in years. Likewise Greg Strong and ChessV recently. Here Aronson responds in 48 hours after 1-2 comments all year 2008. I have predicted within our circle even who will comment on a controversial topic and right on cue, presto!, they appear, after month(s) at times, their worn established creode true to form, some with same old tired and incorrect message(Trice), others with nice new well-thought defence (like Aronson) or novel idea. Just assume any given chess enthusiast is in fact still reading and listening for better result, despite disillusionment or long abandonment.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
