Carlsen ekes out another Topsy Turvy Titled Arena Victory

@dankdane Did I touch a nerve perhaps? I just meant that it is a ridiculous word and you sound like a MAGA-child when using it over and over again.

@ObadiahBlueHat

I see. I will stop using the word "SJW" so that I won't offend you going forward. Maybe I will add "MAGA-child" to my vocabulary instead :-)


“The man who lies to himself can be more easily offended than anyone else. You know it is sometimes very pleasant to take offense, isn't it? A man may know that nobody has insulted him, but that he has invented the insult for himself, has lied and exaggerated to make it picturesque, has caught at a word and made a mountain out of a molehill--he knows that himself, yet he will be the first to take offense, and will revel in his resentment till he feels great pleasure in it.”

― Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

@ZugAddict , Please keep your wonderful article as-is and don't listen to these SJW transvestites ruining our fun with their 1984 thought police. If you give them an inch, they will take a mile. The big majority of people there fully supports you!

@Tomondo sorry if you need a "safe space" but we the people won't let you turn Lichess into it. Maybe you just love to feel offended like at @cr2015 post above, but - if not - feel free to go somewhere else or even create Sjwchess if you have enough brains to do it (which I doubt). Like @hal9k said, Lichess will be just fine without some 1100-rated crybaby. And perhaps Lichess needs to introduce the " idiotentest " (great German idea) so that some special snowflakes like you and @ObadiahBlueHat won't be able to register

So many angry people here now... Why do you all get so offended when someone wants a discussion about what words to use? Don't you get that all generations have these discussions? What makes you so mad that you have to turn to personal insults and name-calling?

My guess is that you are all young, white privileged men who feels threatened by all things equal. Why would anyone otherwise use the words "social justice" as if it was something bad...?

You all appear very insecure and sad.

With that said, bye. No more of this toxicity for me thanks.

Apologies for the pedantry, but the article has a few double spaces, at
"by the narrowest of margins. In addition to"
"cowed by such novelties. One of Carlsen's"
"one of which future generations"
"a miracle shot at catching up. In the end,"
"such a great show. His twitch stream"
Might be worth fixing to improve the form. :-)

Edit: Those seem to be filtered by the forum software when posted, but they can be found in the article.

Fantastic event and fantastic article. I can't wait for the next lichess Arena Event!

I have nothing to say, but I saw the counter at 99, and just wanted to nudge it over.
RE:99 That was indeed very pedantic, I'd say it's even fussy. Hope that doesn't offend any cops.
