    Have a good reason for suspecting someone. More info the better.

    You can send one a day.

    I have had at most 1 or 2 games where I thought I could hear the hum of machinery. The rest of the games that were a quick/embarrassing lose for me had a reason/blunder that was easy to spot or became clear upon analysis. Before resorting to a report to RHP, look over the game and try to spot your mistakes and how your opponent took advantage of them. In hindsight, were their moves realy so mysterious or computer-like?

    Ratings or a single move are NOT good guidelines to judge possible computer use (ie How did a 1300 come up with THAT move?).

    what if you see that one of your opponents has a result graph with only wins and no losses at all ?

    Depends on how many games total. A record of 3-0 is quite different from 30-0. Be careful if you are refering to a current opponent, public accusations of cheating can lead to YOU being banned.

    thank you for your reply, I think there is a system in place on this site for people that suspect someone to use a chesscomputer, that they can put a complaint in without being expelled ?
