With all the cheating scandals and allegations (from amateur to professional and even world championship level) flying through various chess forums and the media, the questions are:

– Should ANY player be allowed to have access to private, unattended rest area?

– Should ALL players be limited to X amount of bathroom breaks per game (perhaps 2-4 times in the first time control, then 1 -2 times for each additional time control)?

– Should ALL players have to go through metal detectors?

– Should National Federations and FIDE come up with written rules / severe penalties for violators?

Should more be done or should we leave things be?
