Hi JD,

@JD: so if I got you right, you played 10 7-pt matches against yourself and one 
side lost 9 of them. I've never heard of such a occurence in the real life. It 
is an obvious fact that with true random the result must be 5:5 and this can 
statistically surely proved. Too bad that I lack this skill, but for me it's 

More serious: writing a good Backgammon AI is difficult. Writing a complex 
program is difficult. Writing a random number generator is far easier. Using an 
international rewarded, hundreds of times tested RNG is trivial. Do you believe 
that all that smart guys developing Gnu-BG all fail in a trivial issue and 
don't recognize it in the last 15 years? 

@all Other: How often do you have convinced one of the conspiracy theorists? 
From my experience it's < 20%
