There are very, very FEW cheaters at this game. One who was open about it said he did it just for the fun of writing the cheat program, and he didn't intend to play any more. That was years ago. The high scores you see now are from people who not only don't cheat but have posted videos of themselves playing the game so you can SEE them getting, say, 1600 points.

As far as people cheating at anything, including this game, there have been countless books written about the subject. Most fiction novels include cheating of one sort or another as one of the themes, if not the main theme.
