Law against Cheaters
During the last 2 streams, I claimed that I met 3 cheaters.
I was wrong. They were 6! :)
Yesterday I got 35 points back from 6 cheaters :D
If I was a FIDE president I would offer a law to sue such people :D

What do you think about it? :)

Playing online is becoming increasingly difficult as there are the cheaters the Coach mentioned about ruining it for all the serious players as well as enthusiasts. Recently we encountered cheaters who play a couple of inaccuracies so as to not get caught up and then blitz out the game. I agree there has to be some way where this can be stopped but I guess such is life where you read or encounter some or the other form of con artists.

Lastly," the game is bigger than the individual" and will survive this too.

Wow! I have seen some of the cheaters, while watching you play them during the webinars and this always upsets and exasperates me! I used to get angry about this cheating, but I try not to now, as that makes this situation worse!

I do feel that some action should be taken against them if they are clearly shown to have cheated (& probably they will have done it across several games). I feel the chess arbiters on the server should then serve them an immediate 1 year ban from continued online play and that their names/accounts be made public on a roll of shame! Let's push for a Chess Mood law against cheaters!

It seems very sad to me that some players cheat online or over the board and I feel something needs to be done to minimise this and somehow deal with it! Why doesn't everyone do as Chess Mood with:Right Mood Right Move?!!  Well done to you for helping to deal with it! ;-)

Yeah we have our own policies, if anyone of our ChessMood members cheat, he will be banned from ChessMood lifetime. 
Unfortunately we can't ban them from chess for lifetimes :)
