No rating, no cheating, only play

On Sept 09 Sanboryaa posted “Best Sute Against Cheating” and obtained good answers.

Now I was thinking that, perhaps, the best way to avoid worrying about cheating could be a place, or site, where you could play without any rating at all. Just play for playing and record only wins and loses.

I have tried to find such a thing in the actual sites, but it looks like the players are frantic about tournaments and getting high ratings. . . like making art just for money.

It depends a lot upon outlook towards chess.....
If a player is playing professionally then he will worry about his rating performances and not about casual play...........
And, also, a vocational player will play for fun without caring for
rating points..................
So, having a rating for such players is critical.....
Moreover it also gives us a chance to play with players similar to us or give lower rated players a chance....
SO, I believe that having ratings on websites is crucial.......
As for cheating,
Anti-Cheating Methods should be invented (Geez thats easier said than done!!).....................
