    what's paranoid?

    they make exactly the same moves, and move at the same time?

    and funnily enough both show as recently online, and then both go offline.

    and they have the same style of bio....

    do i have to find any more evidence or can a mod delete these games now??

    I suppose you have a point with the same irregular moves, but it could just be a coincidence.

    If you're concerned, send feedback to Russ and the Game Moderators (who can be found here: http://www.redhotpawn.com/comhub/volunteers.php) and they can help you out.

    what are the chances that they happen to log on and move at exactly the same time over more than 1 day?

    i get both move notifications at the same time regular as clockwork.

    they've stopped now that I PMed them about it.

    If they would know each other, then that might explain the time parallels a bit. But it seems they have not played each other. And with somewhat equal ratings...

    Just because you claim something isn't a cheating accusation doesn't mean it isn't.

    Could it not be coincidental? Ten and Twelve moves into each game doesn't seem too awfully far. Really just opening right?

    even stranger, both players move within moments of each other, every single move.

    if this is not a case of multiple accounts, then clearly the players are colluding over their moves.

    Sorry, but your claim that this isn't a cheating accusation when you state that the players named are either the smae person or coordinating their move (both forms of cheating) is totally contradictory. You may not be saying you want out of the games because the guys cheat, but you are still saying that they are cheating. Please avoid this in the future.

    [edit] just in case you missed it - Darvlay's advice on what to do was correct - contact the game mods privately. If there is foul play then hopefully it'll get sorted out before your games are over.

    [edit2] putting "edit" inside < > doesn't seem to work any more...

    can a mod please delete this thread?

    I don't think there's any need to remove the thread. It;s served it's purpose and should slowly slide off page 1 naturally.

    While we're at it though, please watch the swearing!

    When the Sex Pistols released the album "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols", a Nottingham record shop was threatened with prosectution for displaying the apparently obscene album cover. However a professor of linguistics at Nottingham University was able to prove the word "bollocks" had an old English meaning as referring to a priest and the prosectution was overturned. The word bollocks can therefore not be considered obscene.
