    So you don't think that the admins have a clue on how to undo things that were wrong?

    Eight games resigned by a hacker? Wow! that is a skilled hacker with too much time on her hands.

    Sorry, I think that it's just another Friday on planet earth.

    Left your computer without logging off the site, did you? We've had a few of those here. Usually some prankster close to you. Losing a few games has no lasting effect on your rating, because you get more points for winning games from then on.

    Don't know what the Admins can or can't do. however it doesn't matter now. their logs will just show I did it. I made report to my company security since the hack occurred at my station when I was not present. the password to my station was hacked as well. The interesting thing about a situation like this, is the premise could that I am a sore looser and I was trying to fix my rating :-) it would not serve any purpose to argue the point. Don't you agree?

    jabriol, you joined RHP 14 Jul '08 (over six years ago). Obviously your concerns matter, especially if they occurred during yesterday's server related outage. Send an immediate Feedback to Russ: http://www.redhotpawn.com/site/feedback.php

    One of jabriol's games in question is a four move resignation game with you: Game 10826212 Something doesn't compute.

    It takes mad H4CK1N9 skillz to sit at your desk when you're gone and resign games.

    Should have played 2 ... b5 and Kewpie would lose a tempo getting the bishop into the game.

    If the amount of games you resign is indicative of your account getting hacked then you must get hacked every week.

    My error in giving the benefit of doubt before looking at the games back to 2010: most all are Resignations or Timeouts.

    Once you accept that people are mostly evil or at the very least a 3a, the world becomes a much simpler place.
