The first thing which struck me when Ronald Stagg started posting and it became clear that his real playing ability was light years behind the way he performs in games on this site was that his first name was the same as the notorious Weyerfritz.

to take notice and do something to address it?
But I have to doubt that such a universal boycott would succeed now. Evidently,
there are some players who don't believe that he's cheating or who don't care
about it. Perhaps there are even some players who secretly admire him for
