I see your point, and even though I am not so sure about it I agree that we have compensation. But what if silver doesn't push us around any more than on 7s? Say, 8s m::Rg6 (or however that notation works Tongue) then sure, silver e is a bit decentralized but I also don't see how we immediately profit from it. e.g. 9g Dd2nnn Mc5n 9s Rf6x eb5e Ra5e and silver got plenty of time to start the counter attack against f3. And any other gold move doesn't really threaten to take over c6...

 
I don't like that 8s, but silver could pull once and stuff the c6 trap which is solid.
 
8g Ef5w Ee5w de6s Mc5s
8s eb5e mg5n Rg4n rh6s
9g Cc2n Rc1n Mc4w Ra2n
 
seems better for gold. Silver's elephant decentralization is punished.
 
I'm torn between this move and pulling the horse to b5 with Ma5.
 
Or my suggestion that came after the poll started which was too late to add, I guess.

I think it goes to evaluation philosophy.  I am rather fundamentally opposed to an attack around c6 that is EMH vs. EH, involves giving up a rabbit, and is susceptible to a swift MH counter around f3.
 
I do not mind advancing in a way that will keep silver from forcing our elephant west, which essentially means keeping our own camel secure for the time being.  But I don't see a move that meets these criteria while creating enough compensation for the weak rabbit.
 
Meanwhile, flipping the camel seems a fairly natural move that works towards many of our goals.  Anyway, I can accept browni's suggestions, as well, if chosen.

What do you mean? Have I lost you on my mailing list? Or did you simply not have the time to vote but could have? (in which case that's okay, I only name who could have voted not if they actually did, since thats otherwise hard to find out)

I am twice in the wiki page and on all these announcements ...who is approved to vote ... seems originally you want to make the list alphabetically sorted than you resign on it ... leaving me as a mark of the changed decision Wink
