Backlash from Indonesia

Ali also apologized to Levy, after Indonesian netizens bombarded him with fiery insults following the controversy. Though Levy locked his Twitter and YouTube accounts since the brouhaha, it does not stop the backlash from Indonesia.

Nonetheless, Ali felt no regrets from Chess.com’s decision to block his father’s account. “My father can live a calmer life, now that he took a break from online chess. He was so obsessed with raising his ELO that he forgot to eat and sleep,” he said.

“The blocking seemed like a reminder [to Dadang] to stop playing.” Ali added that his father has no plans to reactivate the account.
