Strange rating ...

Having a look at the rating list I see that Ryszard Kasperek has a 2544 rating and the FICGS FEM title.

I just wonder how he got the FEM title as he did never play a single game on FICGS ?

He has been rated 14 times with the same original 2544 elo without a single game played here

Strange ...

IMHO people who register here with a high foreign rating and do not play a single game in more than one year should be banned.

I cannot even imagine how they could be granted a FICGS title

GM Suat Atalik never played a single game here and did not connect once since early 2006.

Keeping him in a rating list is not correct

Hi Marc,

The rules specify that a title obtained at IECG give the right to ask for the same title at FICGS (with F letter before, ie. FEM)

Ratings are no more established ones after (if I remember well) 2 years of inactivity. I think that old ratings should remain in a list anyway, that's a part of correspondence chess history :)

The active players list should be considered first, then you won't see these ratings anymore.
