    i) Just because someone has the same name on here as a real person, that doesn't necessarily mean that the RHP player *is* that person.

    ii) Assuming it is the same person, 136 ECF does not correspond to 2250 here. I'm around the same level ECF-wise, and struggle to get over 1900 here.

    iii) Engine use is not the only reason people can be banned from the site.

    Although I think a 136 player would be around 1900 here, they might scrape 2,000. A quick look at his ratings graph seems to indicate engine assistance after 20 or so games.

    They couldn't let him keep on playing while having a name so similar to mine. That's why.

    He was banned for impersonating you. 🙂
