Hi Repbot Morons,
I just wanted you to know that my rating went over 1850 for the first time. I have been on FIBS for 17 years. I have played close to 50,000 games on FIBS.
I know that Repbot Morons are unimpressed by such statistics. The only thing that impresses a Repbot Moron is if a person makes positive statements about Repbot. Nothing else matters to you. Statements from perplexed visitors that the poor soul has a negative rating and he doesn't think he did anything wrong, simply go on deaf ears. Repbot Morons think Repbot is never wrong. It is infallible because everyone knows that every player will be perfectly honest when they file their complaints. And no one could have different views on when it is OK to leave a match. You, the poor soul with the negative rating, must have done something wrong. Repbot could not be wrong.
However, I figure some poor soul may come here, like I did 5 years ago, trying to figure out why he had a bad Repbot rating. He will ask for advice from the Repbot Morons and try to follow it. All this will do is cause you grief and harassment from Repbot Morons who think there is some meaning in the rating. You will waste hours following their advice and receive much harassment.
My advice to you, poor soul with the bad Repbot rating, is don't listen to the Repbot Morons. Delete your account and start over. The reason you think your poor Repbot rating is unfair is simply because it is unfair. Its not more complicated than that. Repbot is stupid and simply facilitates slander. Ignore it and the Repbot Morons and move on. That is what I did.
Now I would like to talk about how I got such a high rating. Its because I worry about improving my backgammon game and not about whether the other guy I played acted precisely as I personally have decided everyone in world must act and whether I must file a complaint against him for not acting precisely as I have decided everyone must act.
I don't sit here and judge some guy who dropped a match with me because his girlfriend called, who he just fell in love with and cannot stand not to be with, and he dared to not finish the match with me and, instead, wanted to talk to his girlfriend. I also don't judge some parent who dropped a match because his 5 year old was playing in the middle of road and he went to save the kid. A Repbot Moron says how dare they? Repbot morons worry about this crap and whether a complaint should be filed. I just worry about playing better backgammon.
Repbot Morons don't understand how anything in your life could be more important than finishing the match. As far as they are concerned, the save feature on FIBS should never be used. There is never a valid reason for it. I wonder why they think it is there. They don't understand why you would drop a game to talk with your girlfriend or stop your kid from being run over - because they never had a girlfriend or boyfriend- and, thankfully, they will never have children. Their whole freaking life revolves around FIBS and Repbot and whether you violated some rule that exists in their head. They like Repbot because it allows them to pass judgment over others concerning, of all things, how they played backgammon on the internet. It is pathetic really. Feel sorry for them, but don't worry about their opinion of you.
Anyway, I have been on FIBS almost since it was formed, my rating is over 1850, I have played over 50,000 games, and I have a good rating on Repbot. I just want you to know that a person like me hates and despises Repbot, you Repbot morons, and everything you stand for. I don't think I could dislike you more. I just wanted to say that in celebration of going over 1850.
Have a good day.
