    Kudos must go to RHP administrators for weeding out the bad eggs amongst us. I suspect the two names mentioned above could be the same person.

    Clivestradle was just unplayable in the June '08 tournament.

    I hope they never turn up, for the sake of integrity, sportsmanship and responsible chess

    What happened? How did they find out?

    I've played several good people here, but clivestraddle dissected me like an expert surgeon.

    What happens to the games his playing. I was looking forward to timing him out, but now there is an icon against his name that says "banned player please wait"like some kind of in limbo.

    Those game no longer count. Cheats will always be caught, even if one deliberately lose some games.

    That's fairly arrogant. You're around 100 points above him which means that he still could give you a good game.

    I think it was more a case of I don't want to lose too many rating points if you beat me rather than arrogance
