    I just played a game against a person who had never moved before the game I played with it. I suspect it is an "it" because it did superhuman moves on me and then stopped moving after our game. Do you think it could be a trial run account?

    I suspect the moves weren't superhuman at all and that you just got beat like a government mule.

    It could be anything. If you suspect that you played a machine do an analysis of the moves and send feedback via the button on the bottom of the page.

    It is reasonable to assume that some percentage of the games we play here are against computers.

    "Cheating with technology"

    "Technology has been used by chess cheats in several ways. Perhaps the most common way is to use a chess program while playing chess remotely, e.g. on the Internet. Another type of cheating, with the aim of boosting one's rating on an Internet chess site, is to sign on with a different IP address and user name (a form of sockpuppetry) to play and lose against themselves. Electronic communication with an accomplice during face-to-face competitive chess is another reported type of cheating..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheating_in_chess

    In my experience I find that those who ridicule people who suspect their opponents of progging are probably progging themselves.

    Just because you suspect someone is progging doesn't mean you think you're Kasparov.

    I'm guessing this is the game you're talking about Game 9989435.

    I don't see any "super human moves" black played very naturally. White played a very poor opening and got punished for it.

    It is probably best if you don't accuse others of cheating when they beat you convincingly.

    Why bother? The player wasn't cheating and has left the site anyway. Use your head, kid.
