Item 2.  Report of the Computer Use Detection Subcommittee.

The Computer Use Detection Subcommittee (CUDS) reported its findings to the Steering Committee and recommended that the methodology it had evaluated should be adopted for use by the league. There were three principle recommendations: (1) Notice to be placed on the profile page and elsewhere that all league games would be examined for possible computer use; (2) Suspect games should be reported to speedtrap; and (3) The league should suspend or ban players on the basis of our own program findings. The methodology and all three recommendations were approved.

Editorial Revision of Statutes to implement Item 2:
Posted March 18, 2009

4.E.v (new). A player suspected by CUDS of having used computer assistance may be given a red card. At the end of the required suspension the player may be reinstated if the Entry Clerk is able to determine a reasonable fixed rating. Under privacy guidelines of ICC, only the player will be provided with the reason for the red card. There is no appeal of a CUDS-recommended red card.

Under our editorial revision policy, unless a SC member wishes to bring it up for further debate, this change will be incorporated into the Statutes in one week
