Thanks for the response, Eggy. The accusations of cheating are something we'll have to live with, I guess. I have occasionally expressed my skepticism at some curious plays I've seen, but I try not to worry about it because there is nothing of value to gain or lose here, except a few minutes of ones life. In any case, without a detailed knowledge of the educational background and reading habits of players, false or baseless accusations might be the order of the day. However, my concerns involve a little more than cheating, but propriety would suggest they would be best not aired in a public forum. I think I sketched out the main outlines of the problem already anyhow, and now my own suspicions are being confirmed by a pair of accusations that have been hurled my way via email. It would appear that there is still an active interest in judging my present motives based on past action. To some degree that is understandable as our knowledge of other league members is generally quite superficial.
I have had fun for most of the time I played Lex. The time spent playing games were a big help in me mainting my sanity during a series of troubling life events, so I still maintain a sense of gratitude to everyone for the little contribution they made in keeping me balanced. I trust that, going forward, a meaningful discussion develops that would lead to concrete steps to making the ladder a more welcoming environment for all players, new and old alike. Take Care.
