    You never know if these 2 people contact each other to let each other know they are making a move. You should use Site Feedback and say something more like,

    "Are these guys cheating? They seem to move at the same time."

    Cheating accusations are not for the forums, please keep them as feedback... and you never know when you might be wrong. I've thought I've spotted a cheater and turns out it was a group from a school or some other valid explaination for what made me think a user was cheating.

    I was playing with Ah Boy from Afghanistan then suddenly I won for resignation, and a message appeared "Player banned - game won"...how does it happen that a player is banned? what should he do? And especially: WHY DIDN'T THEY GIVE ME THE BONUS POINTS FOR MY WIN??...Game 2707424

    What does it mean "to beat the crap out of somebody?"...I don't speak English perfectly but it doesn't sound very nice

    Rating inflation eh?

    You know what they should do. Take the points from banned users and disperse them amongst the commoners

    Just like Robin Hood.

    I crushed a cheat before he cheated... and it makes me wonder if he started to cheat because he thought I WAS cheating... view my first couple games here, and view that user's graph.

    I should have got 7 zillion points!

    If you don't get rating points for victories against cheats won't it cause rating deflation?

    Assuming that most removed players are above 1200, they've taken points off other players to get there, therefore when the go *poof* - these lost point are never regained and just disappear off the face of RHP/TFC/CAW/PTIG.

    I think we get rating inflation when someone just stops playing of the site, suddenly they're timed out in 50 games and they end up with a rating of 635, meanwhile others are scooping undeserved gains!

    No, it won't cause rating deflation. Most of us can't even beat the engine, so would have probably lost a couple points in the game anyway. There is no reason for us to get points from this cheater, as we probably wouldn't have beaten them anyway.

    If we had beaten them without an engine, we may have got a couple points... but how many? There is no way to know the true rating of the cheater.

    You could play a hundred games against cheats, feel your rating is now 'off'... but your rating is what it is... it will always normalize after a few games, because that is your true rating regardless of whom you've been playing.

    You are missing the point. WE (RHP) should have gotten 7 zillion points!

    Wouldn't that be nice. Seeing your rating go up a couple of points everytime a cheater is kicked out.

    I might hit 1900 eventually without ever playing a game on here again.

    Ah Boy was banned for having multiple accounts here at RHP. They have changed the system recently so you do not recieve points from in progress games with banned players. You recieve the win that's it. Sometimes by mistake you might recieve the points. but usually not.

    It's not really a recent change. No one got points when Ironman was banned however long ago that was.
