    I was surprised to see CroCrew is banned for engine use. I have two pending games with him. If I hadn't gone on site map by accident, I never would have known. Wouldn't it be a good idea to inform opponents when a player has been dumped. I bet some of his opponents have already sent reminders to CroCrew or are analyzing problem games with him for nothing. In spite of all that, I'm glad to see people are still being prosecuted for engine use because i hate to play against engines pretending to be people when i have a perfectly good Fritz at home that can beat me all the time.

    I check there yesterday. I kept checking in Jan wondering when the next person would get the boot after our friend SantaDRummer

    I can't believe the leader of a clan would do such a thing! I would hate to be one of the clan memebers. To think you look to your leader for advice, etc...sort of like a hero and he betrays you!

    Being a normal person whatever, but a leader doing this? ARGG!

    Yea, I feel sorry for the members of Croatian Clan. Sorta like what happened to Twin Peaks. Maybe it's a case where the leaders feel obligated to achieve the highest rating. If you look at CroCrew's rating chart, it looks mighty suspicious, increasing from around 12, 1300 to 2000 in such a short period of time. sooner or later he was about to be examined.

    How could it come as a surprise to you given his insane rating graph?
