No, you don't. "Mig" is arrogant. I made him aware of the bugs in his timer code, where several games expire and someone is given a loss when they still had time on his clock. His answer was basically "I don't care." And someone recently asked me and Zied to talk about our variants on there, posing a series of questions. I answered them all, and Mig deleted my comments, for no reason whatsoever.

Is this the legendary Mig Greenguard you are speaking of?

No, that is Kasparov's body guard. This guy is some French dude that thinks a pretty looking website that fails epically when it comes to time management is acceptable, and then he wonders why there are never more than 10 people online at the same time.

Ok good!  ;D I know Mr. Greenguard and Mr. Kasparov personally!

I met them each, once. I debate some of Kasparov's liberal tweets with him. The question is, if they saw you, would they claim to "know you" personally? :)

Well as a person who identifies as a Bill Kristol Neo-Conservative, (although I DO NOT want to get into politics on this site) I wouldn't call Mr. Kasparov's tweets all that "liberal," and he has conducted incredible efforts against the problems in Russia (No response necessary).

My father is currently working with them and when I hang around my father's office I often see them and talk. Mr. Kasparov knows me as "The Shogi Kid" because that's what we often talk about (they have even suggested I go into chess problem composition, which I am now going into) and I'm fairly confident that they would say they know me personally. Mig is even potentially joining the forum, and I wouldn't call him just a "bodyguard," he also of many achievements invented Fischerandom chess.

I guess the easiest way is to create an account at Jocly.com, play a few games, then contact the admin when your games run out of time when you were otherwise winning. But your response will look like this:
