    I think one of the things I like about online chess is that access to the opening book neutralizes the advantage of those people who just spend all their time memorizing a ton of opening lines and traps.  Isn't that just as cheesy?  Bobby Fisher complained that chess was decending into rote memorization of opening lines and it was killing 'real chess'.  That's why he created 960, which bypasses the opening altogether - you could give that a try?

    Btw, most 'real chess' is played in the middlegame and endgame, not the opening ...

    frankyyy27, you are a child. You keep repeating things that are false, that others have slowly and carefully explained to you are false.

    You want a pool of players who wish to play handicapped correspondence. Fine. Make your request in http://www.chess.com/forum/category/suggestions.

    Stop making up statistics. I was willing to acknowledge that your 80% was a plausible hypothesis, but not for the reasons that you imagine. 5% is utter nonsense.

    Stop referring to database use as cheating. That only makes you appear stupid and then leads to closed threads.

    Bad sportmanship is precisely your mode here. You will not make the effort to develop the requisite skills to play correspondence chess well, so you rail against those who do.

    You are like the (American) football coach who wants his team to play without helmets because they are expensive.

    Look, frankyy217, if you think I am going to put my dogeared 11th edition of MCO away when I play Turn-based Chess, well I am not. And, anyhow it is written in Code, which you would not know how to translate, and so you could never prove it. And besides, it has lines which have become "obsolete" and they are the ones that often win!

    It isn't cheating since there are countless free databases that everyone has access too.  If boxer A and boxer B both put metal in their gloves then are they still cheating?  According to official rules yes, but practically they're leveling the playing field... but still think they're cheating as they're unaware the other is using the same dirty tactic.  It's different because a boxing federation can check gloves before a match, a chess server can't tell your memory apart from a book.  It wouldn't be fair to someone who studied an opening to be flagged as a cheater.
