    Well if not using an engine then you shouldn't worry about anyone else here.. let whoever accuses you remain paranoid, it's their problem. They can't do anything to you anyway. If not using an engine then no one can, why to worry about them? They would probably feel they were right if they saw someone they were accusing of cheating leave the site after the accusations.

    So would you say you would be more likely to play against engine users here on chess.com than on the legal engine site Syrtis?

    I take you are asking if the number of engine users is greater here or there? If so, I have no idea. I haven't played here that much and it was a long time ago. To be honest, I wasn't much concerned with whether or not I was playing an engine user or not, I was more irritated by a couple of accusations from idiots.

    I suspect my experience would be much the same as on the other site, everyone reaches a level and the engine users are generally higher than the non-engine users. There will be some overlap due to very good "non-assisted" players being able to hold their own against the less able "engine assisted".

    The thing that might surprise some is the range of ratings occupied by those using an engine. One would imagine that most would use the strongest engine available and would therefore be concentrated in a narrow band.

    Well you obviously like this site as you're here now, even if not playing.

    I like, or rather liked, some of the people here. I pop in occasionally to have a chat with old friends. Unfortunately many seem to have departed. I know one or two have come over to the dark side with me but others have just vanished. That's online life though.

    I also occasionally read the forums, like now for instance, or watch some of the shenanigans in the live bit of the site. My presence here generally indicates I have no moves to make elsewhere, I have no work to do and my wife hasn't found me a wall to paint or hole to dig.

    lol

    Come here then, I can find you a hole to dig.. a big hole, for a lap pool.. only condition is, I'd need you to also build the lap pool. lol

    Tempting, but a) you are a long way away and last time I was there I got harrassed by a mad economist; and b) my wife objects to me digging holes for random internet ladies of the female persuasion.

    Just to drag this whole thing back on topic, I still favour server chess. It's played on a server so that seems apt. Correspondence chess doesn't really work as correspondence suggests people scribing missives with quill pens rather than mucking about with electrons on the interthingy.

    so she only allows you to dig holes for random internet ladies of the male persuasion? lol.

    I don't know. I am generally a gentleman and assume all ladies (even if they hail from Bangkok) are of the female persuasion.

    I am told it is only gay if you push back. Hmmm, that's enough of the non-PC malarkey, if anyone from HR sees this I'll be sent off for equality and diversity training yet again.
