We have done a thorough investigation into your participation in TCEC and frankly I am surprised that you replied to my challenge.
You see, we have your complete contribution to TCEC chat from inception. Here it is, in chronological order:
Feb 23 12:13:52PM I used the ARB system to beat A0 10-0
Feb 23 12:17:05PM ARB rulez - sad he isn't here to explain his fantastic system

I would like to point out a few things.
To begin with, you NEVER said anything about YLCET on TCEC. Not a word. You maybe went on YLCET and said some things, I don't know about that. It doesn't matter; we can't control what people say on other websites and don't worry much about it--except on Talkchess. But the point is that you think we banned you for something we have no knowledge of. Interesting, eh?
Secondly, it is not as if you were a venerable chatter. The above chat is the full extent of your chat history since inception, and you will notice that you started your nick's TCEC career by extolling the one person who has caused TCEC more grief and trouble than any other human on the planet. Mentioning that individual in any positive way is grounds for summary dismissal in our book, and let me remind you were a guest of TCEC. We reserve the right to reject anyone who behaves badly.
I would like to add some further context. We have been battling this same ARB person for four or five years. Over those years he has used countless nicks through proxy servers to spam, make groundless accusations, promote his nonsensical videos and heap extremely vulgar abuse on me and other people.
Thus your first two opening chat statements seem from our perspective like a kind of reconnaissance intended to see if we would take action. We did because no rookie comes on TCEC and from his first message starts praising ARB. Only someone who knows the ARB saga and has been involved with TCEC for some years talks about ARB. Praising ARB is thus a deliberate and hostile act, in our eyes.
We weren't awake on February 23. It took us four days to notice those posts and we banned you immediately, without any warning. Looking at the facts you may think we overreacted or should have warned you. I would argue, based on our terrible past experiences with this person, that our only fault is that we didn't ban you instantly. Anyone who says hello to TCEC by praising ARB is ARB, for all practical intents.
If you think you can come back and say "but I was just joking" all we can say in response is that your sense of humor needs some tweaking and no, we will not be lifting our ban.
I hope this message has clarified the matter.
