    Suspiciously joined on the same day... you can see the game in the "recent checkmates" section which appears when you start up the site.... someone trying to boost their rating by playing themselves ...

    Or a father-son team, of similar strength, who find it convenient to make their moves on this site. If you check back on any of the games, they play out the whole games - 30 or 40 moves or more - and they win around the same number of games.

    Sometimes paranoia is just that, and they're NOT actually out to get you!
