    I really hate what these witch-hunts do to our site. But honestly, why do people get so obsessed with engine users? Are we here to get a good chess game, or to rate our egos against those of others? Maybe we should kill the ratings system altogether and use the Ladders instead.

    If people wanted to play engines they can do so. Here we want to play people.

    edit: I personally have played very few suspicious people.

    A good chess game is fine ... but an impossible one? Not so much.

    No, seriously. You have zero chance to win against these things. It's like a runner racing against a Ferarri.

    Or a weightlifter versus a fork lift.

    Well, I don't mind playing with someone who get a little helps, but to versus an engine, no thanks,

    Anyway, the only thing I can try, is just beat them.

    If I beat them i'll insult them

    ( man, i cheat and I still lose ? what the hell ) will be their tought.

    when I play people rated higher 2000, sometimes, I feel I play like a computer, the guy read me like an open book and scrap my systems appart, I can,t do anything.
    ( just a wrong feeling. ) ( BUt do not be so worried, just wait, and even 1800 players , will drop pieces, I've see some piece dropping often,, I do some too. )n


    I feel witch hunt are useless

    It seems the less Chess games a user plays the dumber the ideas.

    I for one HATE playing engines, & I have played many of them. It takes the fun right out of the game very quickly. The more of these Engines that are caught, the better it is for the Site.

    I am here to PLAY other PEOPLE, not ENGINES!~

    People suck. It's best to maintain the system we have now where the top user names are obvious and blatant cheats; this serves to reinforce the idea, so popular in the Spirituality Forum, that human beings are essentially worthless.

    Have a nice day.

    I agree with you No.1

    If my life depended on picking 2 players from the top 20 who I'm 100%
    sure do not use a box then I have two.

    The others...Hmmmm....

    I can understand the total frustration and the only outlet seems to be these sly
    digs that everyone is having as proof is being ignored.

    But we must let the mods do their thing.

    Sly digs have turned into blatant pointing and think how awful it must be
    if the target is indeed innocent?
