    Hey guys, I’ve just started listening to y’all today. I’ve been picking my way through your episodes, listening to casts about recents shows I’ve gotten into. Great shows.

    I just want to leave a comment about Yahoo Go games. The last I tried to play there (admitedly, several years ago) there program wasn’t implemented properly. The problem I ran into was that if I pass and my oponent rejects my pass, I could not pass again! This is totally against the spirit of the game and the rules of the game. This forced me to keep playing stones until my position has gone from being in the lead to losing (by filling my own secure territory). I hated it – haven’t gone back there again. Besides I hardly ever meet polite people at Yahoo games.
