From the small amount of research I have done, the picture is stolen and is used in many scams.
Maybe, but a picture isn't verification that a user is a scammer or spammer. Verification of this, based on what has already been alleged, would involve support checking out their activity.
I know that support have to get involved to have the account closed but it's a good indicator that the account uses a stolen picture. I simply stated what I have read/seen on many sites.
Do "Attempted" postings by MrCopperHead in Tactics Trainer comments qualify as spam or just as a huge annoyance? Is there any way to block members so you don't see their postings?
Sure.. Go to private settings: http://www.chess.com/home/privacy
But this is only on your profile ( notes, PMs.. ) other " report abuse " and chess.com can mute him/her!
I've only seen him post one "attempted" comment per TT so it wouldn't qualify as spam
I'm sure I'll get over it, somehow. I use tactics trainer every day, and have done over 18,000 problems. I always look for useful commentary and explanations of lines of play. I have never seen a posting by MrCopperhead that was anything more than "Attempted" with the dates or a vapid non original repeated quote. It's just consistently annoying. In a perfect world I would just block him out in a similar way as can be done on Facebook, just as you might choose to block me if my venting was annoying or abusive. Thanks for listening. I'm amazed by all the otherwise really intelligent, articulate and nice people online here. Thanks for making that possible.
Can anyone tell me why when an opponent aborts a game it affects my fair play rating. On several occasions my opponent has failed to make an opening move, the game aborts, and when I try to play a new game the server reads challenge cancelled!
This is ridiculous. Several games in a row my opponent fails to make an opening move and my account is disciplined! Brutal!
