Not as solid a program.

I will still post stuff, but I shan't respond to any of the bullshit from Luee, Bambu, or RedStateTrump. Mostly not Kid...

The rest? If there is conversation, I'll converse. But the tit-for-tat crap? The polemics? No.

And I will refrain from polemics, as well.

Congratulations.

Hard work vs. inate ability.

Nurture vs. nature.

For chess, it seems pretty clear - hard work and nurture cannot compensate for a lack of natural aptitude.

No surprise there.

Adults don't, either.

But don't assume the impact is simple or always in the direction you would expect.
