And +1 finger to the ICGA.
As for the The ICGA Process, a couple of points, the verdict is good, canceling of the WC titles, a strong message to aspirant programmers who want to compete in ICGA tournaments and deliberately want to humbug the rules of fair competition.

As for the criticism,
1. The life-time ban is way out of control. Not even in professional cycling with all its doping scandals life-time bans are practiced. When a cyclists is caught part of the punishment is the public humiliation via the media. That is taken into account.
Thanks for listening.

I have never taken position on the verdict. I have called the ICGA a bunch of amateurs, which some took as offense, for their lack of due legal process and their disproportionate 'sentence', while for Rybka 3 and 4 nothing was proven.
