    It's great, JMHO. One can quickly start playing. And when I noticed many messages and comments after weeks, I was positively surprised.


    What eludes me is that there are pairings of good players vs beginners. The good players won't advance by beating 1001 weak players, will they?

    lastthirsk, Chess.com bans players for engine use all the time. If those sites are  so much better, why are you here trolling are forms? Go to one of those sites and be a moron.

    It is probably the worst chess site on the net. The people who own it don't have a policy against users of chess engine software, whereas Lichess.org and Chesscube do have and excercise a strong policy against cheating on chess sites. It seems Erik and Jay don't have the inclination to take care of the problem on their site. 

    This post is dumb (does chesscube still exist? What a crappy site)

    But it's true businesses don't give a shit about the long term. They made their money, and so now they won't put in any extra effort. Just hire some new programmers to attempt to fix the spaghetti code the first guy wrote. all while their bank accounts grows for doing nothing but signing checks. Good job Erik, you're so valuable to the company (not).
