    One (Akizy) just vanished due to inactivity, the other (Weyerstrass) vanished due to inactivity and then got banned.

    It is assumed that is the reason he was banned due to considerable moaning about alleged engine use. Since RHP don't list the reason for a banning (apparently this wasn't always so) it could have been for something else. Dubious activity with the site goat for instance.

    Yeah, that one did in a lot of greek players for sure🙂 You know, the greek gambit?

    well we know he was banned from chess.com for engine use so its a safe assumption

    No we don't know that. chess.com also don't publish reasons for banning. Looking at their list of banned accounts it is obvious that a lot must be for multiple accounts. Whatever the real reason, I reckon goat bothering is a much more interesting reason.

    Well his matchup rate was around 95% and world champion matchup rates are around 85% so.. Yeah I think it was the goat

    Definitely 3g "goat bothering without a licence". Perhaps we need a new goat bothering match up rate system to catch these persistent goat botherers.

    Interesting, it mentions last game in april of 09, and first started in 08, wonder when he was chugged off here? Could it be he just picked himself up off the floor after being offed here and started business there?

    I wonder if the real Weyerstrass knows about all this garbage?
