when i said the German team i mean the top German team. I highly doubt a
German team that cranks out only 200 units a day is cheating  :)

please when you join a thread stay in context of the thread and remember
what we are talking about which is cheaters with high daily output.

straight from TPTB and the fact units were taken away from the team.
Also the word CHEATER was inserted in the names of those who were caught.
Not sure who inserted that you or TPTB but it is there right now.
