I am extremely dissapointed with the admin of this site. Some weeks ago I reported an obvious cheater. Off a rating of 1100 he completely demolished me in 2 games and even went on to beat players rated 1900 + in about a 30 game winning spree. Then he proceeds to lose his next 30 or so games by resigning after a couple of moves. Yet this player is still an active member!

At this stage I just give up. People are playing mechanically well above their rating and it seems to me that online chess is dead and buried. Such a shame.

    People will always try to find loopholes and cheat the system. It happens in all walks of life.just remember they are losers really. Don't let them get the better of you . Oldenglish makes some good points.

    Maybe the guy was drunk majority of the time...sobered up for you and went back to drinking.  Maybe someone else was playing his account for a few games...maybe he was inspired for a few games...or maybe he was cheating.  Doesn't matter that much since you can never really verify it 100%.  Even if he was cheating, there was the opportunity to reflect on the weaknesses of your game, analyze the right and wrong strategies, and attempt to refute an opponent that played stronger chess, whether human or machine or both.  At least that how I try to think about it.
