Could it be a programme? Is someone coming online making a move, then going offline for a few minutes and coming back on to make a move very quickly a sign they could be using a programme?

Or would the same thing happen if they were using the wait your turn feature?

i agree with baseline internet in some countries is very expensive, because they charge you for internet AND phonecosts - in germany, local call i.ex. are more expensive than LD.
so the player can for example print out the boards or set it up on a regular board and then think about her/his move offline

Normal behaviour I dont' think this is nothing strange at all... me, for example, having the GK toolbar installed, often follow this scheme:

log in, make my moves, quick view to the tournament tables, the league and the forums then point the browser somewhere else... when i see the GK icon flashing i go back to check the new moves; some of them sometimes were already analyzed so i reply very quickly and leave the site again. I think this is very common for users with toolbar or "wait your turn" enabled.

Thanks everyone. Just to clear up I wasn't accusing anyone, just wondering:)
