account closed for cheating; but he is playing live chess

  • #1

    One of my opponents has had a sign on his homepage that says: ACCOUNT CLOSED FOR CHEATING since yesterday. Yet this person is playing live chess right now. How is this possible?

    If cheating, how would anyone find out?  Also it would defeat the whole pupose of the game and a person must be very low to do so.

    That would be funny. But it's probably one of the zombie logins they've had problems with in the past.

    what is a zombie login?

    I lost to his engine already once, so I will be 1-1 against an engine

    I posted in the other topic you replied in, but it is likely just a stale/phantom session in the database. The player isn't actually playing.
