At last we got it!
You are absolutely right that especially those who claim that numbers irritate them made at least a few totally illegal moves in each of their games.
At least if we assume their own record would be accurate
I would not slap them, but it must be recommended to use numbered boards, as they seem to need it badly, including two very reknown World Champions.

are the games of the women and junior event, and if I may dream, also the games of the Irish Open 2010, recorded?
I do not demand them to publish them at once, as I know it takes time to decipher,enter and check them all, but were these games recorded for the history books of our game?
They surely deserve to be preserved.

They have to wear T-shirts with message: "Learning numbers every day !"
Yes I also have those scoresheets but I got very tired when I attempted to transcribe the games since they were in an even worse shape.

What makes you think this way ? We know that on numbered boards people makes errors in recording, but why you think number of error will be significantly dropped on numbered boards ?
This is quite untested statement. And indeed - these numbers has alot of disturbing influence on quality of games.

I am recording all my games since 1996, more than 2,000 today, and usually I make mistake only 3-4 times during standard state tournament, - 12-14 games, 250-300 moves. And all other master players have the same or close percentage. When pressure is growing (like in Beijing) - the percentage of errors is also growing, and numbered boards will not help us much to improve things.
