Ratings on Caissa
Do you all think the ratings here are accurate?
 
I have played a few games at chess.com (live) and my rating is 1400...while here it is 1700-1800 (correspondence)...I am getting my butt handed to me there. It's been quite humbling, as I thought I was an alright player. I got beat in 8 moves by a 1440 player! I'm wondering if it is due to widespread "computer use" (ie cheating) on that site or if my rating here is inflated.

Re: Ratings on Caissa
Guys try to remember that we are not playing as many people here on cassa as say ICC. I was a member back in 1997 when we were having a very bad computer cheating scandel. I left, came back in 2003 and it was still a problem. My highest score was 1907 under another handle. I was getting beat by some guys because I would be down by 2 full pieces and this guy was only 1130. Now some of them were good players and very good players just starting up on cassa. Others had this thing to get a fake high rating. I am now in training mode again to go back to uscf tournys. My rating is lower due to resigned games when I GOT MY HEART SURGERY DONE. I would like to have more correct games for study. Bill Morningstar
