Not sure if it is known or it is being address but right now anyone around 400 rating apart can play eachother, and if the top rated player wins he gains 2 points while the lower rated player loses 0 points. This allows for instances such as vinyljr dropping games to koders all night and losing 0 points while koders gains free points. This issue should be addressed.
If he gets up to rating 3000, who cares? If he plays a real game he'll get trashed.
if someone wants to take the time to play 500 games to go from 2000 - 3000 then i say they deserve all the honours and priveleges coming with such a high chess.com rating.
It might be something to worry about if they paid you for achieving some rating level, but these ratings mean absolutely nothing. Nothing. They are only a guide to allow better matching with opponents.
If a guy inflates his rating, once he begins playing stronger players it will deflate quickly. If he never plays anyone within 400 points of him, so what? What has he gained?
The day that hot supermodels begin swooning over highly-rated players at Chess.com is the day I start caring. Not that I need the help, it's just I meet so few of them in daily life . . .
This could be part of the plan to increase ratings for all players. Indicated here http://www.chess.com/forum/view/livechess/rating-system4 in post #5.
