You seem to be missing the point.  Nobody has claimed that there is such
a rule, nor that you, Anthony, Erdogan or anybody else has done something
wrong or unethical.  The point is that some of us think the GUI should not
help the engine in the task of choosing moves, neither in the opening nor
in the endgame.  We all know that such a rule does currently not exist, but
it could still be a good idea to discuss whether such an rule should be
introduced in the future.
