I live in New York. The two Major League Baseball teams here are the legendary 26-time World Champion New York Yankees and 2-time World Champion New York Mets.

These two teams ended the regular season tied with the best records (97-65) in Major League Baseball. Everyday, I hear on the news countless debates about which team is better and which team would win if they face each other in the Subway Series.

While most of these debates are friendly but passionate, there are always a few lunatics who make obnoxious insults and sometimes they go as far as making physical threats to others who do not agree with them.

How many times have we seen the same thing in soccer matches? That is why during times like this, chess fans need to unite and respect each other more. Additional hostility and insults will do nothing but destroy chess even further.
