    I suck + I don't cheat = now I know why my rating blows.

    How many players above 2000 are honest?

    Who is that? They sure never posted in the forums, so most of us don't know 'em.

    He first join in 2003. Hopefully he acquired some semblance of chess skill after pseudo playing for so long. If not... that's just sad.

    Why is it mostly subscribers booted? Why not play a few games as a human here but, then get a playchess account where your engine can battle other engines? You will also be able to play versus other humans so you avoid the need to start 200 CC games and "juggle" them all.

    I'd be more alarmed at the psychological state of someone who feels the need to cheat because a silly internet rating makes them feel better about themselves

    He seems to have been the highest rated "player" to be banned other than Ironman31.

    You ask this? It's because most engine users enjoy paying a fee to get as many games as they can and then use copy moves from their computer. Pretty idiotic; they dont have a life at all. Get up, eat, look at a chess engine, copy it here and not learn, look at their rating jump and go "YAY!! I have a high rating!! Wooo!" (Gayness) then go to bed, because their only friend, the engine, isn't very social.

    Engine users are a good exaample of a low no-life. Especially the ones who pay money to use them.

    I use engines.

    In fact I use 3 of them and they have cost me a lot of money.

    There is a 2000cc engine in my car;
    I have a 1000cc engine on my Jet bike;
    and a mere 600cc engine on my motorbike.

    All purr like a baby and are very sociable.

    Unlike Kingcaptured my engines stop me from playing chess.

    Should I be banned for using them?

    kingcaptured seems a little odd in that respect. He didn't play that many games in his four years here and only had 13 in progress when he was booted. I have seen people playing almost half as many games at one time as kingcaptured played all the time he was here. Maybe he wasn't using an engine but cheating some other way? 3b doesn't just cover engine use.

    no, but you should lose your license for OTR (on the road) play. Too many HP and RPM for a screwed up chess lord.
