    Bill, you do not HAVE TO act butch here - just discuss matters with civility.
    Yes, I have see how civilly you have referred to Kevin and Denis.
    As such you are the last person to tell anyone how they should post.

    With that bullying, your reputation declines in the eyes of anyone to whom your reputation matters.

    I remind you that at CC, a threat of legal action is a bannable offense. It would be an ethical dilemma for you to do here what you cannot do on the board where you moderate.

    In any case, you are being given a fair go here - and that is all that can be given, a fair go.

    As usual you are deluding yourself.

    The problem with AO and you is that not only are you both this sites owners but also the ones who have a history of defaming others.

    I have already stated what will happen should they choose to become active posters here.

    As for being me being civil to them when they are not here, I cannot be being uncivil because they not here. One can only be civil with those with who you have a discourse - and we do not have one. I am merely giving them the abuse that they deliver from CC to me and others. I am not being civil or uncivil to them. They cannot expect common courtesy when they are not here to receive common courtesies - as you are.

    You were abusive to them even when you could post on chesschat.
    Your behaviour now is no different except your facade of decency.

    I am not a site owner. I contribute funds to run it.

    Nevertheless, what EXACTLY is the problem? Is it that someone with a here-say history of upsetting some people should not be on BBs.

    No, my behaviour here is one of my normal courtesy to others in this community. It is different to that back at CC.

    Again, Bill, which is the facade? Me at CC or me at OZC?

    Thank you for the clarification.

    It is not a matter of upsetting people.
    The issue is that you and AO have a history of making defamatory posts.
    As such to expect you both to moderate defamatory posts when you yourselves make them is expecting too much.
    It is that simple.

    Do you make defamatory posts?

    No, nobody is going to ban you <Bill>, but you might find that people will not be willing to seek clarifications or advice from you since your answers tend to contain barbs.
    FReedom though Fischer-Random chess to enjoy the whole game.

    Really? Then you would have no apprehension in defending the word "porkies" as it was used by you at CC, to a jury of ordinary decent people.

    Yes, you are right. Thou shall not escalate a discussion to a flame war. I will be mind full of that.

    It is good to see that you are as clueless about the law as you are about chess.

    Your behaviour on bulletin boards going back prior to 2003 was that of the same abusive, vile and vulgar individual. Your abuse of others is even evident over of the closetgrandmaster site.

    You can keep up your facade of decency here, but you really are not fooling anyone. It is in your posts regarding Kevin and Denis here that your usual abusive behaviour once again spews forth.
