Can Eddie Leach be checked out? His games have seemed ok up to now, where a CSW solver is blatantly obvious.

It's easy to think "how did they know that word?" and "how did they solve that numbers game?", particularly when you're a new player. But as a long serving apterite I think the mentality to have is that 99% of people are not cheating. Recently there has been one person who keeps signing up and cheating but apart from that, to me, apterous is thought of as cheat-free. And when a cheat does come along, they stick out like a sore thumb.Nina Boyd wrote:I have my doubts about a few, particularly with numbers; but then, I'm crap at numbers!
I think rounds 5, 6, 13, and 20 in this game (for example, like, I'm not showing off, it's just easier to find it in my games than Chris B or Jack H or Jack W) could be pretty intimidating for a new player. I remember myself seeing some tricks by certain 4L players when I was quite new and thinking what the hell, that can't be a human working it out, but after concerted efforts to get your head around the tricks of the trade, these things become pretty natural.Nina Boyd wrote:There's often reference to cheating in the side-panel on the apterous screen. Are there really people who cheat? If there are, shouldn't they be warned/outed/removed? I have my doubts about a few, particularly with numbers; but then, I'm crap at numbers!

I don't post on the forums much, but I can say I definitely did not cheat in the games played against you.
Charlie's right, I did used to cheat, but I haven't for a while now.
