    Yes, I couldn't agree with you more.  Imagine showing up at a live board with an engine to make your moves in a USCF tournament.

    When you use a computer engine while playing chess on line, you cheating to win the game. You are not only cheating your opponent but you are also cheating yourself. Don't cheat.
