    Just wondered how could someone with a 1200 rating be removed for engine use? What kind of engine would he be using? One of those
    30 dollar handhelds which maybe gets to 1500? Just curious, if anyone knows. I looked at his profile and saw his curve, no noticable climb, except for a few games at the end and they did not look like they were helped by an engine.

    He wasn't banned for cheating. He was banned for thinking about it. (LOL)

    sounds to me if you don't like someone you can just eliminate them.
    And how exactly was I cheating?

    EDIT: And yes I have the ability to get anyone who asks for my help in cheating banned.

    i guess we just take your word for it...... huh.
    Thread 48654

    On the basis of that thread I PMed him telling him only that I was leaving soon. He replied that I should give him my username and password so he could set up games with my account. Here's the PM:

    Hilarious. Sounds like he earned his ban.

    Is he the record holder for the lowest rated 3b'er? If so, it seems as though there should be some sort of recognition for this achievement.

    Possibly, but it really should be 3a (multiple accounts) rather than 3b (getting help, engine or otherwise).

    is it just me, or doesnt anybody as well miss the point of cheating here.

    I mean you won't get big money for it, will you?

    So you'll have a big rating...which will allow you to...?...play with 2000 rated player? But if you can't go over 1200 by your own, what's the point of having a game with a good player.

    I just dont get it.

    ...or possibly 3a(i) - intention to have multiple accounts
    ...or possibly 3du(h) - stupidity

    3ai would be something related to computer assistance obviously.

    As Woody Allen said once "Bad guys must have understood something that Good guys didnt"

    When a player rated higher than me makes some obvious blunder while playing with me, I always propose them a instant draw, so they can keep their ranking, notifying them that I dont care about my rating.

    I like to play with higher ranking when I am experimenting some kind of new opening - just to prove me that I am wrong, eh eh

    But for the rest I have no problem playing with any beginner. I mean thats the way everybody has learnt and improved.

    What happen to my killer instinct!

    oh well...

    now, i saw you threaten to smack another user in the head and yet from your mentally ill world this gets put down as a joke and not harrasement. where is that user now? they don't even take part in the forums.
    Whereas, in your mentally ill world, there's nothing wrong with asking people to deliberately lose to you to bolster your rating.

    What was the point of cheating when your rating is only 1200.

    OK you get it up to say 1600. Now unless you use an engine you get slaughtered. Anyone rated 1600 can tell they are playing a total patzer.

    I can't see any point in this. Is it a joke?

    it's also crossing the same lines threatening to smack someone in the head. no?
    Well, Xanthos playing him really doesn't affect XNZ, simply because he won't gain rating points for the win (well maybe 2 or 3, but still...)
