you are right - a disgrace - i have never understood the need to cheat at chess - i suk - i know i suk - cheating would just make me feel worse lol
i presume your main question was asking about this site in particular - you are right that there is nothing to stop someone from doing it
BUT if any suspicion is raised, then the mods WILL check the games against the most common engines and anyone with "too high" a match on the engine moves will be banned from the site.
has happened many times and will no doubt happen again soon.
