You are so right. It is morally wrong. But...
It is easy to open another account. And it is not possible to discover that you have open another account by the opening it itself. (In other cases it would not be possible for my brother, my wife or my dad to be a member at RHP.)
By approving a forum where everyone can discuss a progressing game, but the player themselves, is merely to inviting them to cheat only by opening an alternate account, isn't it? And noone can reveal them as cheaters.
Yes, I know, we can compare this issue by using a engine but now we're discussing the question of discussing progressing games.
If there is a need for discussing going games, then I recommend the thread "One move a day" in "Chess only forum"where it is permittid to discuss, comment and guessing the progress of a 'live' game, one move a day.
