I wish there were time to vote on both sides' moves - that last one would make an interesting poll between Christopher's move and the more dangerous play of making the bar. Anyway, over to the Herd - no escape just yet...
That seems like as good a way as any to decide, although I'm not in favor of playing behind the anchor. it seems weak, but I won't be surprised if it is best. I'll start a rollout since I can't imagine there is a cube in the immediate vicinity.
It's been a while since I've used RepBot since I mostly only play the bots now. Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you also VOUCH for a player? Or have people forgotten that? And to make one thing clear, I still think we don't need it.
Wow, I've never seen the Herd so completely split over a move! With no tactical changes of vote at the last minute to force a result, I let Gnu's random number generator pick between the four leading options...
It appears repbot is being used for other than mere dropping a match. I've gotten negative feedback from 1) arguing with an opponent and 2) playing too slowly for my opponent. My understanding is that repbot is intended to detect droppers, however, right?
Droppers are a big reason for RepBot, but not the only reason. If a player behaves in such a way that you wouldn't ever play him or her again, that would seem to be a valid reason to complain. Excruciatingly slow play or verbal abuse seem like good reasons to file a complaint.
That said, I've only ever complained about droppers. And since I rarely get dropped anymore (thanks, Repbot!) I only very rarely file complaints.
