Suspicious activity, indeed

Under the heading "Currently on the forum: of the Home Page is the link "Noticed anything suspicious?"

However, when you click on the topic, the site says "The requested topic does not exist." Now THAT is suspicious! :D

Someone probably didn't read the rules and they threw some accusations with no proof. Mods delete posts like that. So, yeah. Nothing to see here.

Mods also keep cheater and bug reports unreadable in cases of anonymous games.

I was recently in an anonymous game in which a bug allowed another player to read my messages and send messages from me and also to change my orders. When I reported it, the mod did the same thing with the message to protect the anonymous game, which ultimately got unranked and closed out in a 7-way draw anyway.

It’s a link to a post we haven’t allowed to be published (yet).
When someone posts in the cheater forum we have an opportunity to review it first (can impact gameplay etc if not), and then post it at an appropriate time, for example after we’ve done an investigation and/or redacted sensitive information in the post.

On this type of Forum (and most types, frankly) posts in a section of the Forum can be held back from posting before they've been seen by forum admin/mods. I'd guess this is what is set-up for the Cheater's forum. Kinda makes sense, given that it's easy for an inaccurate or, frankly, disruptive post being seen.

In the United States, FinCEN requires a suspicious activity report in a few instances. ... If potential money laundering or violations of the BSA are detected, a report is required. Computer hacking and customers operating an unlicensed money services business also trigger an action.
