Subject:This is temporary
Time:05:53 pm
Hi, I have been plating backgammon at Yahoo for several years. I have
recently faced a problem. The problem is when I win a game I lose points.
Sometimes when I do not play, I still lose points. For example, the last
time I played was 9/5/11 around 3:00 pm and won a 101 game. I left table
with a point around1960. Today, 9/6/11, when I wanted to play I noticed
that my point is 1916. How is that possible when I have not even played
single point game?
This problem is not new. In the past month I have lost at least 150 points
even when I won games. It happened a couple of times that I lost a one
point game and more than 20 points were taken off. In other occasions, I
won a 101 game and about 50 points were taken off.
It simply does not make any sense1
I have contacted Yahoo!, and all they do is to send a form letter that how
much they appreciate my reports, but really do not ahve a real answer. So,
I am not reporting to them anymore. They gave me your website and I
thought you might be able to figure this out.

Maybe I should grade my students with an ELO rating system. Wait, no, then I'd be getting this email constantly.

It gets really fun when Scrabblers whine "how can I win a tournament and lose rating points?" Um, because wins and ratings measure two different things?

That does seem weird, though. How does that happen?

That would be interesting. You'd have to have them compete head-to-head, though.
