I agree with your policy as stated. In fact, I filed my Tournament game with 
Carol with the Blind 
Chess group and then as a friendly game with Carol at the USBCA.

Hi All,

In the welcome letter I sent members after the first few that joined this list, 
I stated that we 
would rate all games including other tournaments as long as both players were 
members of this list.

I think that will eventually lead to unsymmetrical results where tournaments 
are concerned and so I 
am proposing that tournament games sponsored by other groups either be excluded 
or be treated as 
friendly games for rating purposes.

To date only two game scores are affected by this change and I can easily 
remove the games from my 
records.  If I wait until there are many such games it will be a lot of work, 
so I want this decided 
quickly.  I will adjust the affected players so there is no loss in their 
current rating.

If you have comments or questions on this proposal please let me know right
