Look here for more information about how users cheat, the warzone cheats: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=573 , cheats in general, viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2386 . As for engine using cheat you just need to take your engine out and analize games and see how accuarate players are. Although one game means not a lot.
Firstly, how is a person to know if someone is "sandbagging" them? I've played people with noticeably lower ratings than myself who whipped my butt and I've also been fortunate to have been in the reverse scenario. It feels as though this could be construed (by an onlooker) as a sandbagging situation. I could go on all day as to why a lower rated player beats a higher rated opponent (usually a mistake by the "better" player), but the reasons for this are countless.
I have no idea what the heck an "engine user" is. Yet, again, players are asked to make assumptions of what they THINK is going on with their opponent from a remote location.
The bottom line is this: You will never be sure. While I commend the efforts of those at ChessCube, the "if you float, you're a witch" philosophy may have effects which are unwanted.
