    That's why I typed "scared".

    Then you wasted $$$ to get the private hack, let alone never being able to play the game again...

    That's why i use proxy servers whenever i connect to a server i am going to rage because if i get banned then i can still come back with my normal IP Address.
    True. Thank you for your post.

    I can't seem to load the survey.
    Is it still up and running?

    Just to answer a previous question about cheating in real life as well; Yes, I do, and I know others that do as well.

    I think it is a connection between the two, cheating in computer games and IRL.

    I personally consider cheating as "helping aid", or as means to overcome obstacles.
    I am working out, and have competed in sports events while taking anabolic steroids and performance boosters like ephedrine/clenbuterol etc.

    I do it on a regular basis, 2 or 3 times a year to get bigger, stronger and faster.
    I am very happy with the results, just as I am with my results cheating online.

    Just thought I would share the relevance between the two .

    For me, I think it is a psychological effect, that triggers the brain. Described as "Incentive salience". It is a motivational "wanting" attribute given by the brain to reward-predicting stimuli.

    In my case, the rewards of being seemingly good at something that is sought after by other people. Like mad skills in online games (Quake Live in my case), or being very big and strong at the gym and other sports, or just walking down the street and having people stare at you for being ripped and lean at 240 pounds.

    All in all, every user has his or her own reason for cheating. Whether it be for griefing and pissing other people off, or making yourself seem superior. It all comes down to the positive emotions you get WHILE doing it . This is what makes you want to continue.

    I found this cool article on the brain's reward system on Wiki.

    Write your exact reason for cheating:

    "Why did you use the computer software (this form) to make this survey? You could simply grab a pen and paper and travel the world to talk to each cheater and write their answers on the paper. Not?
    Well, then you could use a computer software instead of aiming manually."

    LOL.

    I am aware of the repercussions of cheating, and will do my utmost best to ensure I do not cheat.
