    lol I am such an idiot

    http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?id=14201&page=3

    In this thread I posted as Asher123 (as you can see when I signed it FNM)

    Let me explain... I know that you are thinking that this is my second account, but it is not.

    Asher is my brother, this is 100 percent true, why else would he have a subscription and me also?!
    he is not around on RHP anymore so I decided to take his account and try to make his clan better by recruiting new players and bringing his rating up a bit, this has been going on for about 3 days now.

    I assure everyone that he really is my brother, this is not like the incident with james woodley, the two subscriptions are proof for that.
    Russ, you can even check it, and Boris saw me and him both online on Uchess which is even more evidence because it is impossible to connect as two accounts on Uchess.

    I dont think that me using his account with his permission is anything wrong, it is not violating the TOS, but I will stop if told so. the only reason I didnt tell anyone is that I didnt want to start a riot, i certainly didnt expect to make such a foolish mistake! lol

    So I just want it to be clear that it is not my second account.

    I was about to mention that - I did a quick search through your posts as Shaul to see if you signed them FNM but I couldn't find one so I forgot about it. Also, I remember Asher being around and he had a pic of himself on his profile, as I'm sure you have in the past, so I know you are two different guys. So, you can stay chilled! 😵

    The games between Asher123 and Faith No More clearly took place before you're brother ceased using his account so that's ok. But you have presumably been making moves as Asher123 in the Drunker Samurai challenges, as they've not played the Jewish Clan then I'm cool about that but other people might prefer you to not use Asher123's account.

    No, I didnt cheat in anyway for my clan or for my rating.
    I asked him which games I sohuld resign and which I should keep beofre starting to play in his account and I was only doing him a favor by trying to get his clan more members... I am waiting to see what russ will think when he reads this

    I applaud your honesty. I think it's pretty obvious that there has been no foul play here. Is it your intention to play out Asher123's games and then just manage the Samurai's challenges without taking part until a time when your brother returns or you had the reigns over to another clan leader?

    actually my intention was to get his rating to about 1100 (something like his real rating, he is 700 because of timeouts) and keep his clan going.

    I want to see what Russ will say about this, and If i can still play his games and take care for his clan.

    A special sorry to Pulsatilla, whom i plaed also as faith no more and also as asher123, and who is also a friend of mine.

    I wanted to tell everybody but he decided that if i take the account it remains a secret. little did he know that i will ess things up. DOH!

    If I understand correctly, you been making moves in games on your brother's account. I believe that would be a violation of the TOS as 3rd parties are not to assist in a player's games and certainly playing his games is substantial assistance. He's not telling you what moves to make and you're typing then in correct; you're actually playing the games? I think if that's the case you should cease doing so because regardless of your good intentions it is a clear violation of the TOS.

    I trust you 100% - but if just one person on RHP doesn't, you might get yourself into trouble. I think the wise decision is to stop playing your brother's games immediately.
    Just my 2 cents!
