I want to thank Virgil for deleting some cheat scores.  It was very much appreciated!! 

It's very difficult for anyone to validate that the scores are not possible, so perhaps we can work together to create a list of scores that need deleting and that everyone agrees are 99% cheats.  I'll post a separate thread later to see if anyone wants to work to do that, or has a good way to maintain and vet such a list.

Ditto on the thanks to Virgil.  It might just be a consequence of wandering around at the fringes of known space, but it has been a few weeks since I have come across any indisputable cheaters.

@Tex
A separate thread might just dilute the entries on this topic.  Then again, you, Warren, and I are the only users I see with multiple posts here, so the impact might not be too significant.

I'd like to report an inappropriate name:
name: F-- U (I am not spelling here the full name for obvious reasons)

map/time/score:
CS#2000 47:52.2 / 5,562
CS#2002 / 4:04:34 / 37,252
CS#2008 / 1:07:18 / 4,713

There might be other maps as well, I just noticed these.

I'd suggest that the many top scores by Jaxx in Tormented space also warrants a closer look. There are very few quick victories in TS.

S200_101   Jovencoting

Krul1  9907  0:33.6  >  I don't think you can even build/fire a Nullifier in this amount of time,  let alone something to keep it (Nullifier) from being destroyed.

steffan  9836  0:59.7  > Ditto above comment. 

Next (3rd) best time is more realistic at 4:01.7. 

There are only 13 recorded "high scores" for this map

Suspicious scores:

S200_151 : Sumhur
Steffan          0:50.5
aaaa              0:51.7

S200_52 : Balsisport
aaaa           0:28.3

S200_120 : Utocorpis
Creepa'        0:37.1
aaaa            0:40.7
Steffan         1:33.7

S200_120 : Utocorpis  [I typed in the wrong entry from my list -- sorry for the confusion]
S200_188 : Grimageo
Ed C**ter     5:15.5
Note:  If this were some random player I would give him the benefit of the doubt on this one, but considering Ed's history I am confident that he didn't legitimately beat the second place score by 3+ minutes.

does "Ed" have an offensive name?
report it and it can be scrubbed...

I would not be surprised if Ed means to give offense with his name, but my particular complaint with him is that he is a frequent offender with impossible scores.  He is one of the high profile graffiti artists that Tex suggested scrubbing earlier in this thread (cf Reply #20 from 15 Dec 2014).
The 5 minute score listed in my previous post is conceivably legitimate, but I think it is safe to assume it is a cheat since it has Ed's name beside it.

[Update]  I just realized I entered the wrong system under my complaint against Ed ... your comment makes more sense to me now that I realize my mistake.

S200_0   Waternaris

Krul1  9927   26.3 seconds

This map looks insanely easy for a quick win.  But can u even build the stuff that fast?  I don't think so.  I looked around at several maps in the area.  His scores all seem way to good to be true.  I think ya need to break out the Ban Hammer

There were several really short times on this map.  But I go back to not even being able to build that fast.  yes I know u can 4x.

There's still custom maps with shorter than normal nullifier build times, maps that don't even need a nullifier to be won, maps like Brain, which use CRPL, maps that use the old totem system... if you just deleted all the scores with a time under the bare limit of the time it takes to build and fire a nullifier, you would probably cut off a lot of real scores too.
