Why not make the "rules" transparent?
There are always going to be guys who try and cheat the system. You might as well define the rules clearly and obviously.
Or, as a player, you might as well just play as well as you can every time you step onto the court, not worry about rating stuff at all, and let the computer do its thing.
The guys who are going to try cheat the system will find a way to do that no matter what the system is.
For the rest of us, just play. If you come across a sandbagger, just view it as an opportunity to test yourself against a stronger player.
