My knowledge of English language is not enough to keep long discussion. Even in Ukrainian I do not want to do this. It seems that our views on life are very different. To avoid offensive, abusive, etc. discussion, let us stop now. I am here to play chess960 and not to discuss about controversial questions.
Many honest players, especially those really skillfull come to black side cause they see that their opponent is playing against them using extra prohibited assistance. This seems to be even worst in some cases, better fill ticket support and chess.com close opponent account if they 99.9% sure
When you are admin of the Team, especially national, which struggle from this (actually almost every admin face this) you need to think more deeply and when it comes that player who play significant role in vote chess etc. and he is titled, firts it becomes not to lose whole Team but excuse this person. It's really easy to say black and white but world is not so simple and you need to be in front of all this process
The bad thing is that some of fair players do not understand the problem. They do not cheat in their own games, but they believe that Chess.com have closed a lot of accounts by mistake. The worst thing is that a few of fair players continue to respect cheaters even when those said: "I am cheating", that is when cheaters are pleading guilty without closing their accounts by Chess.com. These facts have influence on my thoughts. I think that such fair players are partners for cheaters. They work as thankful audience for cheaters, as if they said: "Thanks for the cheating! Bravo! Encore!". I do not know how to deal with this.
Vital to remember that cheats are a minority.
Must not be permitted to damage team-morale or enthusiasm for chess?
The anonymity and ease-of-joining exacerbates the problem on chess.com . It is good thing that most of us continue to strive for fair-play.
Perhaps more can be done if everyone keeps trying.
Four months ago I wrote: "I think that today all high-rated cheaters are out of Team Ukraine, although I am not one hundred percent sure.". What a fool I was! The cheaters always were, are and will be playing on the site. Chess.com will close their accounts, but they will return again and again. Sometimes I have a crazy thought that the number of cheaters is more than the number of fair players... No, this thought is really crazy.
It is impossible to stop cheating completely but the fewer cheaters the better site.
Yes the situation has improved alot & fairer now. Interesting to see the impact on division 1 of these leagues ? Sometimes I check & well-done Ukaraine for making good-progress there ! (where the issue is much more of a problem :)
I think that today all high-rated cheaters are out of Team Ukraine, although I am not one hundred percent sure.
Yes in discussion aside to those actually playing. But accept your point & we will all see far fewer high-rated players in our teams in future I expect Maxim ?
But better that than matches polluted by banned/account labels no ??
Team Scotland not proud of accounts closed for cheating. To date (July 2012) we have a total of 6 of these..
But mitkam was mentioned in comments.
Alas yes you are right Maxim ! (updated)
But Kenneth was not playing in this match...
who is it?
You asked Mitkam not to play or you would play Claw adriano ?. I have your comment saved if you have forgotton ?Nothing personal in this or against Ukraine but in our group we highlight cheating :
As you yourself do if Ukraine are subjected to that in team-matches.
Update: Subsequently both Claw & Mitkam have been banned by chess.com...
Fair play, no cheating, no collaboration. This detracts from the game & if discovered will be publiscised.
