I never said it was official distributed.net doing it.   I said the team leader
could have put that there.    Get it now?

Go look in the top 4 teams and you will see the words cheater and hack client
etc...    I was talking to a team leader about team leaders doing their job
and making sure none of their team members are cheating.   Our team
we boot anyone caught cheating.

Now If distributed.net catches them yes they are removed from the stats
but I was not talking about that.
