Yes, thanks for the reminder, I should get on this.

I did a first check of solving data, and "grey listed" 7 accounts:
those accounts are no longer visible in the rankings, except to the puzzlers themselves.

I.e. if your account is "grey listed" for using an automatic solver, you still see yourself (and
other greylisted accounts) in the rankings. Others don't though.

5 months on (!), ran another check, and grey listed another 2 accounts [mellow]

Since I did not move up in the all time rankings (just 182nd now, and have been for a while - starting to take longer and longer to move up) I am guessing those would be fairly new accounts that were using the solvers? Really not sure what anyone would gain from it, even if they wrote their own solver.
