In case you can't see the Suggestions forum, AsceticKingK9 has posted this idea for you.

This has been brought up in the past, but perhaps a "Do Not Play" list could be created so that people don't leave the site due to conflicts with other players; rather than site related issues. Goodies can be blocked, so why can't games? Should both players enroll to the same tournament, the person blocking the other should be removed from the tournament. Should both players block each other, the person who enrolled first will be the one who gets to stay, while the other or others again are unable to join in the tournament. eBay lets sellers block problem customers from bidding on their listings, so it's not something that's never been done before.


Why not post this idea in the Suggestions forum? I think it's a good idea.

A topic similiar to this has been previously discussed, but I think it's worth bringing up again.

[Quote from: "Taotaomonas"]How is it possible to spot a program move over someone who is just a very good player?



If you're still interested in reading, you might want to check out the book 'Modern Chess Analysis' by Robin Smith. The book 'How to Use Computers to Improve Your Chess' by Christian Kongsted is good also, but a lot of the same material is just repeated.



Thanks I am sure that this will help to broaden my knowledge on the topic discussed in this forum debate. Good reviews are made for the first book.

It is with great sadness that i will no longer be continuing my subscription with Chessworld.

There is a serious problem which has become very obvious and increasingly widespread. Many chess players on this site can no longer resist the urge to use their chess programs in the pursuit of a higher chess rating. I do not need to cite examples or offer up evidence because i am a good chess player who has played chess for over 30 years and i just know that players use chess programs on this site. i even managed to get one player to admit it!.

This problem ruins online correspondence chess in my view because i no longer play the player but the program and i can do that with my own chess program if i choose without a yearly fee.

I can not see how chess sites are going to prevent this practice so i feel that this type of online chess is on the way out and only online lightning and speed chess will prevail.

I would like to add that i am aware that there are chess players out there who do not use programs and i would love to hear their views but more so, the views of program users if they are brave enough to speak out.

If you think your opponent is using an engine post the prove in the helpdesk and we will look into this.

Thank You, see where you got the facts now.

So to rephrase my question. How did NewKnave know his opponent was using a program?
