The bot has to comply. It's one thing to speculate, it's quite another 
to demonstrate over a series of games that the bot consistently gets 
into capturing races that it then loses. I'd love to see this bot-killer 
strategy clearly exposed -- not just occasionally, but with something 
like 80% or greater reliability.
