That was not bothater.
A strong 6d razed many kgs 5ds(me included) with his account.
This is a case of importing rating points to the bot.
I really don't see a cure for this.
Wrong handicaps could be corrected with a simple function added to the
protocol.(Or the bot could look up the kgs archive before agreeing)
But wrong people playing, or players throwing games on purpose, is hopeless.
Banning accounts is cumbersome and ineffective, and social pressure can
hardly be brought to bear on those who think this is a good idea in the
first place.
