    Is an incredibly elaborate hoax.

    Google it and you will see what I mean.

    The wiki page that Austin wrote, under the guise of the fictitious Gary Topov, say's that it started as a hoax in 2004, but now it isn't.

    So, we can dismiss any of the history based on the perpetuator of the hoaxes own admission.

    The next question would be: has the original hoax morphed into a real "game"

    The answer to that question is NO. It is not a real game. It may be a simulated game, I'm not sure. I have logged on to this silly site to see the extent of the hoax.

    Final question: are you Bowmann, a partipant in the hoax, someone who got duped themselves, or a combination of those three. Answer this question and I will talk to you more.

    my friends and I are quite sure it is a game where about half the moves of both players get randomly replaced by a random legal chess move

    Exactly what I have been trying to tell you.

    The mouse in the maze thinks he is playing a game where he tries to find the cheese.

    Sort of like the blind corners and dead-ends in a laboratory rat experiment?

    Yes there are many reasons.

    The biggest of course being that SRC isn't a game but an elaborate hoax.

    In any event, I expect you to be banned at any minute; so it has been nice talking to you. You have given me some additional insight into how this hoax works.

    No..we have the same viewpoint.

    SRC isn't a game but a computer experiment to test peoples gullibility.
