    There's something very strange about this guy's behaviour...
    July 28th he signs up for the tourney. Same day he gets his rating
    boosted by 2 x three moves game resignations by Nikki Rogers.
    Despite having 145 games on the go at that time he's just letting
    them all timeout - now he's in the 1100's and falling...

    Are we absolutely sure that someone else hasn't got access to his nick
    and that it was in fact dustn himself that signed up for the tornament?

    The moves made in the games around that time are a bit weird...
    Just one example would be game no.96224 which was finely balanced
    but which he resigned.. why?

    My suggestion is this: seeing as how dustnrogers has plainly left the
    building shouldn't he be expelled from the tournament and perhaps
    we could promote, say, Vaksno (who hasn't got an opponent in the
    1200's) to replace him? What do you think folks?

    Here is what I know about Dustnrogers. Somewhere else in the
    forum someone wrote that Dustnrogers was Unexperienced player. I
    have knowledge that Unexpererienced player is also Final Conquest.
    I've played all three nicks. I would not mind playing anyone without an
    opponent. In Dustnrogers case, I think his opponents should just
    timeout on him/her when the flag comes up.

    Surely timeouts can't be the answer if a player isn't even around to
    start the games?
