    Is player URMated a chess bot created by the admin to play Blitz games and accept challenges?

    I'm not suggesting this based on the style of their play, but often URMated accepts my games, and says strange, irrelavent things, and often disappears offline half way through a game.

    It's like the behaviour is robotic, he suggested I should resign immediately simply for playing a Queen pawn opening!

    I'm sure he's a droid, but his opening book isn't very good, it's almost like he's powered by the 1990 Battlechess engine.

    How is this not an accusation ? Don't get me wrong... I love a good accusation... heck I even love a bad one. J'accuse.

    He's not a bot, I've played with him a lot and chatted to him a lot, he's just a really good player and quite a nice guy.

    If URMated were a chess bot, created by the admins to play in the blitz room:

    - it would not say strange, irrelevant things (or anything at all)
    - it would not disappear halfway a game
    - it would not suggest you to resign

    So I don't think he/she is a bot. ;-)

    I'm not so sure about that. He can be quite obnoxious at times, in game. Maybe some people call this gamesmenship, but others call it rude.
