    A good way to find out who is an engine user is those above 2000 rated points, when you chat with them and they don't chat back that is probably a good sign that they are engine users!

    Nobody should have answered him and he will think we are all engine users.

    Sometimes I send a message like this:
    - Is it your nickname on the Hot Babes Net also? Haven't we met before?
    And I get replay:
    - Hi fellow, yes I like cheese very much but prefer climbing to the sea.

    Then I can be sure this engine is using translator engine.

    Users of chess engins are aliens.

    If I ever develop my own chess engine, I am going to name it "Green Card 1.0"!

    You forgot to set the "irony" or the "sarcasm" flag.

    Some people might think you wrote in earnest...

    Get a thumb up, as you did for the explaining post in the GF

    "Not "Green Pawn 3.4" ???"

    I'd love to have a chess engine named after me.
    But it must have no opening rep, play every check when it sees one
    and no table bases.
    Infact if you get into an ending it offers a draw - if refused it resigns.

    2 engine uses so far have given my post thumbs down.

    Obviously you guys chat in the forum, so you don't have time to waste on using Chess engine.

    Probably a wrong interpretation. If a person doesn't want to chat it is their decision.

    Jumping on conclusions is at least bad style could also been seen as insulting.

    Not true.

    In fact, it's probably written somewhere that players over 2000 chat with everyone except engine users...

    It wouldn't be any more true than your original post, but this thread has never really been about logic or the truth anyway, has it?
