    Can someone fill us in on this thread that has 20 -30 pages. It appears skeeter was banned and I can see greenpawn caling people amateurs and presenting proof, then some guy says that is the Rybka top choice.

    For those of us too busy to read 20-30 pages, what are the main points i.e.

    Skeeter/Greenpawn camp
    - blah
    - amateurs

    World camp
    - blah
    - blatant cheat etc

    I have got to get some popcorn and spend some time reading this shiz 😀

    To sum it up, some people have had too much fun over Christmas and want to get stuck into some serious vitriol for the New Year...

    To summarise, the odds on the trifecta odds got a lot shorter. There was no niece. GP was duped. Skeeter is already back making re-acquaintances and enjoying the attention/notoriety. A crony should be posting in this thread shortly. That's about it.

    Out of interest, why was she banned?

    Forum abuse... Someone said exactly why on about page 2 or 3 of the now mammoth skeeter thread

    Apparently harassing others in the forums. See the first post on page 2 here:

    Hi enrico20

    This always happens when one of the top players gets banned.

    Doubt it will outdo Big Ron, You will need a ton of popcorn
    and 1,000 cups of coffee for those threads.
    One ran to 177 pages before it was finally pulled.
    The are still about 15 threads on here with Weyerstrass in the title
    for you to catch up on.

    I'm calling them amateur forum flamers.

    Skeets often left the door open for a witty retort or a gaff.
    Instead it was the same old stuff. Cheat, the infamous sticky note and Skeets is a man.
    Boring......

    I was not going to cross swords with her.

    Anyway mate, one day someone might/will appear on here and call you a cheat.
    It happens to everyone.
    No doubt I'll defend till you till the mods decide. Someone has too.
    (you will to sub up first!)

    I'll recap for Andrew - he is apparently having trouble understanding
    what actually happened. Skeeter was banned for flaming other users.
    (she was a profesional.) 😉

    Hi GP

    I say apparently because I'm not privy to the correspondence between the moderators / site admins / skeeter. I can only take your word for it, which is hearsay. So I thought the word 'apparently' was entirely appropriate given the context and where I got my information from (i.e. you).

    What more concerns me GP is that you are aware of another account for the player formerly known as skeeter. You are aware this is a breach of the TOS. The part I don't understand is that if you koow a user has breached the TOS (i.e. the fake niece missal and the other account you know about, assuming what you say is true) why then do you believe anything else this user tells you?

    They actively breach the TOS (and you know it) and you turn a blind eye to other potential breaches - I interpret your posts in the other thread as if you have already made up your mind and no evidence to the contrary will change your opinion. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I accept that. However, and there is absolutely no offence intended here GP, I believe you have been duped. Do you think someone with an obsessive disorder would stop at one more account? I would place a wager (if I could) the person already has more than one other account set up here. I would happily walk away from this website if I am wrong.

    Respectfully
    Andrew

    Hi Andrew

    The fasle account was gag which half the site was in on. (including Russ).
    I was just on the wind up. I only take 4 things seriously.

    Breath in, breath out, checkmate and smile - that is about it.
    The rest is all nonsense.

    So it is you have been duped. 🙂
    (Don't worry about it. I catch everyone sooner of later.)

    And don't jump on the high horse and threaten to leave the site.
    Try not to get so het up.

    Breath in, breath out......

    Ok - you got me. 🙂

    It was a matter of principle rather than getting wound up. If I make an accusation that is found to be false I would accept the consequences.

    Andrew

    P.S. I fell into your prank and took it seriously. I then used this in a thread to besmirch skeeter and said you had been "duped". I apologise unreservedly. My mistake.
  14. 08 Jan '12 23:40
    No apology needed. No need at all. No offence was taken.
    (I did not see any either.)

    Forget it. My skin is thicker than a Rhino's Ass.
    It has to be. Do you read the stuff I write!

    I take nothing seriously. Remember.
    Did not want you leave to leave the site on a principle.

    Stick around, I'm about to prove beyond any doubt that Fritz and Rybka
    are one and the same program (the multiple accounts syndrome) and both
    are cheats.!! (they are getting human assistance.)

    Today I bought for $5500 Fritz 16 and Rybka 11
    I played them against each other and matched them up v human games.

    1.e4 (a 100% match a human has played this move.)

    1...e5 (a 100% match a human has played this move.)

    etc...etc...etc..

    Well, I warned her of the consequences of pushing her moon landing conspiracy......
