    How can you tell if the person you're playing against is using a chess engine, verses actually playing themselves? What's the difference between how a really good human player plays and a computer? Also, how long would it take for you to tell that your opponent's using an engine?

    Look for the inability to spell "eventually".

    or a schizophrenian inclination to see words that aren't actually there.

    The spelling is correct... but you're singing the wrong verse. In short... people "think" the game mods here use top 3 engine matchup rates... at least as a starting point.

    Hint: Try around the middle of page one.

    Get a life green paladin, the guy is asking a simple question and you budge in like a stupid fool to derail the question at hand. Why should a person be judged by their spelling? A lot of people cannot spell, who are probably way smarter than you.

    I think nothing more than logic can presume if your playing a machine on here, using your own instinct, sometimes it is just obvious.

    sterling example skeety,

    Stirling is a place in Scotland, with a castle over looking the battlefields of
    Bannockburn, whence Edward the II was vanquished and sent 'hame', to think again,
    1314.

    That's sent "home". And I'm not wearing any "troosers".

    Indeed I am not. I've just come down from the Isle of Skye, I’m no very big and I'm awful shy. And the lassies shout when I go by, "Thaughbaer where’s your troosers ?"

    Lol, just watch wee willy winky dont get caught in the DVD tray that's all. Here we
    have a different rendering a purely Scots word, breeks with a hard k sound, which i
    think comes from breeches, although i have not checked the etymology and if anyone
    complains about the lack of chess content i recommend, 1.e4 best by test.

    Skeeter, your pathetic man/woman, whatever ever you are, maybe a bit of both. You are the lowest form of a human forum poster known to my intellectual mind.
