[Bug-gnubg] OT: rigged dice on on-line BG sites

Hi all,

browsing rec.games.backgammon I've found the usual lot of complaints about rigged dice
on on-line BG sites. Nothing new, but one thing caught my attention: somebody was claiming
that on one particular site it was easy for a "good" player to reach a high rating in a short
period of time, but after that strange losses would appear systematically against lower rated
players (like large doubles for the underdog in a race, repeated dancing against 2pt boards, etc).
Somebody got the impression the site was trying to favor the "weaker" player, maybe to avoid
losing him as a customer.

I'm sure nobody has enough *real* evidence of that, but I won't be surpised by something like
this really existing ... business is business :)

I was wandering if somebody (players and/or on-line sites) would be interested in a system
capable of proving that the dice has not been manipulated during a given match. Your opinion ?
