    lots of laughs  I was not a world champion.  I did  win the 7th United States Correspondence Chess Championship with a score in the Finals of 13 wins and `1 draw and no losses.

    I have many friends who are part of Ponziani Power and more power to their vote chess team. I think they will up the 13 in a row to 14.

    Chill, you evidently have been misunderstood. 

    Has happened to me several times, 1) getting kicked out of a very famous group, 2) getting kicked out of live chess for an hour (following a mute, of course), and 3) in another site where a simple typo error got censored and I got muted for it. 

    It is only a temporary perturbation.

    Doing someone unpopular such as defending an unpopular [though innocent] person can sometimes lead to problems as it did here.

    I do not regret "doing the right thing"

    Yes they joined the group just to sabotage the game.

    ponz, I just had a look at that game. Great reading stuff Wink

    I was in that game too, actually I was the one that made the wrong bishop move at the end. The only correct move was the one Estragon suggested. But for some odd reason I managed to put that bishop on the wrong square and after that I even pushed the 'submit vote' button... Embarassed

    No one was angry though, people make mistakes and it doesn't make you a bad person. After all: it is just a game, not a matter of life and death, right? Why on earth would someone want to sabotage a VC-game?

    The 3 imposters were on our team and at one point they all three voted for the same move which was to give up our queen for nothing.

    The game was interesting as we were hard pressed in the opening.

    I found who wanted to sabotage our vote game.  It was a person who lived near London who made up the 3 imposters just for fun and to distrub our team  [he apparently knew how seriously we take vote chess]

    It's common to be misunderstood. They will not care about your evidences whatsoever. The matter of fact for them is that you were involved in something that is unethical to their practices.

    Yes, I recall the game.  The Queen wasn't blundered away, so their little scheme failed, but I certainly understand how disconcerting it would be to have evident saboteurs in a VC game - at any given move, only a few group members may bother to vote, a small contingent could ruin a game.

     

    I would have reported those to the site, it is at least unsportsmanlike conduct.  But what I don't understand is the group's reaction.  They didn't want to pursue the wrongdoers but were angry at the whistle-blower?  This makes no sense.

    They are some of them who had a perceived enemy and some of them decided he was guilty.  He came to me even though he knew I did not particularily like him as he wanted to clear his name. [he thought I would give him a fair shake]

    There was a group set up regarding this incident and several did not want to listen to the defense.  It took several tries before I could defend the guy.

    I did clear him [with his help] and not only that found the person who did the dirty deed. 

    This did not sit well with a couple of people and especially  with the person in charge and now he accused me of being into "conspiracy theories" and cut off communication.

    It is just as well as I am no longer able to do vote chess and have already done a lot for the team.

    Being a vote chess player,I'd like to see a way to report something like this and have the deliberatly bad votes cancelled,failing that get more in your group involved so that 3 votes don't ruin a game.

    Vote Chess is not a democracy.

    When three new vote chess players all vote for the same move after previously voting for reasonable moves--and the move they vote for moves the queen where it can be taken by a pawn--then you Know it is not just a case of stupid patzers.

    [not to mention they broke the vote chess rules of Ponziani Power]

    This is an Interesting topic.  How did you find out who the impostor was, and that he lived near London?

    Actually, it was mostly the person falsly accused who found this information.

    I think most did believe me but there were a couple who were very disturbed that I defended this person. One of the people who was distrubed about my defense kept saying that I had done wrong to the person I was trying to help.  [I know this does not make sense but this person was a mocker and would take any situation to say I was doing wrong] 

    The person falsly accused had an email from the person who did the act.

    In the email the real person admitted he did this act just to rile up the Ponziani Power team.  He probably knew how Ponziani Power takes vote chess very seriously.  He had succeeded in infiltrating Ponziani Power with three imposters.

     

    All this has been reported to Chess.com and Ponziani Power deleted the 3 imposters.

    Ponziani Power has a great vote chess team.  So the three imposters were easily outvoted.  Later when there was more evidence they were expelled from the team.  Actually it was only 1 person with 3 fake accounts.

    I am pretty sure he picked on Ponziani Power because of our reputation of taking vote chess very seriously.
