    it says on blitz chess "Note : All blitz games are currently played unrated. Only your correspondence games will impact your rating." BUT when I try to abandon a game (like when the other guy hasn't moved in 5 mins) it says it will effect my rating if I abandon it, so I'm confused, anyone know why it does that?

    Its the Uchess interface repurposed for RHP, so the rating would be affected on uchess. Its just a piece of code that does not apply here...

    Russ is the guy who owns and runs the whole RHP site.

    I think perhaps they intended to grade Blitz here but never
    got around it or is as suggest it's a piece of old code that is just laying about.
