Now that's a good name. I feel like a whole new person.

I hereby request my screen name to be changed from shameful chess player to shameless chessplayer, please. I feel I have gotten rid of most if not all of the residual guilt/concern I had.

Thank you!

I'm assuming contextually that you didn't mean your screen name, but your rank. It's been changed.

Flannel J: just looked up difference between shame less and shame full and learned the following:

Shameless means, according to Webster's online :
A person who should be ashamed of something he has done, but is not.

Shameful is of two kinds.: one a person--who may or may not be ashamed, and two an act which is shameful.

Prior to the change, I confess, I only had peripheral understanding of the difference, between shamelessness and shamefulness. At the point where a person should feel shameful for an act, shameful and shameless are congruent within the narrow definition of 'ought' or 'oughtn't' feel shame.

Con textually, the added meaning applied both: to acts and persons, place 'shameful' more into an added understanding of context.

This gives shameful more ambiguity, the type of mindset I tried to resolve by clarifying intended meaning .

Therefore I am happy to announce, that my switch, more clearly defines state of mind, of interpreting actions . In this case, I feel, state of mind is absolutely untarnished, at least in the context that the original title framed it.

Only I will know the authenticity and the veracity of this pronouncement, and if not so, it is a matter of conscience, which I would singularly have to accept.

I do not, further, see the benefit one could process from an act which tends to reduce mountains into mohills, on the basis that the negative of that has long ago been disused.

Again, thanks
