unorthodox suggestion wordmaker00     1/16/2011 22:06

playing literati over the years has taught me that there is lot of complaints of opponent using aids,and that they got cheated(which in ,my opinion,is not off target most times).you see fights in lobbies and i am sure lots of eliters do write to the corp/admin(i do), lodging complaints.sometimes the corp takes action and at times they are lenient(dont dare say soft or gumshoe will be sending me a loveletter).even when players dont lodge official protests,there are reactions, the worst is when players drift away and stop playing literati."i don't play literati cos of cheats" is all too common.
here is my suggestion,the use of aids should be made legal.i know some people will say using aids is cheating but if both players are allowed the same parameters, i can't see anything wrong with it.the arguments that its a game to rake your brains and not something where the work is done by a computer software, well, i can tell you it will be as much a brainstormer,the only skill differentia that will be eliminated will be anagramming but on the other hand skills related to strategy, understanding the board,preplay setups,etc will be the deciding factor.since everyone will be using programs(if they want to,the option not to is always there)and games will be won and lost on skills that computers are not good at.some formats may need adjustments,some may go and new ones might prop up.the use of programs is already abundant and legit players are at a huge disadvantage,i say make the field level and see what happens.
if you have any questions(technical or ethical), please ask away and please don,t read this as if i am condoning cheating, i despise cheats.this is my suggestion to eliminating cheating and getting back our players.i would love a discussion on this.. a positive ,fruitful one... i am not looking for a fight.give it a thought.
