Because you played difficult Nemeroth too, to have fun. That's all, singling out someone who plays the challenging ones. Great work of concentration is all that is meant. The hardest to interpret the rules I have played is Altair of Lavieri several times. I think both Nemeroth and Existentialist would be even more of a task to play consistently correct according to the rules, as Lawson says about Nemeroth. I like about all of Short's work, a body underestimated, from the Slanted Elevator ones, Schizophrenic, to Existentialist. Peter Aronson could testify that I supported unsuccessfully Slanted Elevator to be first in our group's recommendation at 84-square contest five years ago. Comments should be taken positively, or at face value if they are evaluative or neutral, unless there is some reason to suspect some double entendre. It becomes matter of the culture of a website.
