    No idea. Must have just happened as he only moved 10 hours ago.

    Regular poster here too.

    Oh dear.

    I hope that's not true.
    He appeared to have genuine and innovative intelligence.
    That puts him among a sanctified minority on this site.
    😉
    I enjoy reading his posts.

    Ditto. Would be "interesting" to know why? It would have to have been something serious as the admins seem to be somewhat tolerant of some shenanigans or at least suspend for a time those who "bend" the rules.

    I guess there is no use asking Russ just what caused him to be canned.

    All of his recent forum posts seem to have disappeared, too. There were lots of them. More than 300 games were prematurely ended by the system.

    That's too bad... wish we knew what happened. I never did very well against him but always enjoyed those games.

    Like most here, I didn't feel that it was my business to ask: But, I'm relieved to hear that it was not an issue with integrity.

    He regularly posted games and tournaments in which he took part, so I really think he is a strong plaer in the real world.
    He is a very bitter person however and often knew no bpoundaries in his postings. He had several froum bans due to that. I would expect that he crossed some line about something he saw as injust...
