There is no tool or page anywhere on this site where people are given the procedures necessary to report whether someone accuses them of cheating or if you suspect if someone is cheating. Yes, I know, it's been discussed in the forums ad nauseum, but for the majority of players on this site who don't post or read these forums, they wouldn't have picked up on those threads, so they would be at a loss as to what to do. Hence, they post here on the forums for advice.
All of your advice should be in the FAQ, or as a separate section in the help menu. It isn't. The Game Mods have been in existence for almost a year, I believe, and I think that it is a significant failure
on the part of Russ, Chrismo and the Mod Teams not to have this information readily available for the new user. If you guys are serious about stamping out cheats, you should have a much louder presence than you do right now, which is tucked away in an obscure link on the site map, which only the most hard-core of internet users would know about.
This guy has done what I would have done in a similar situation - post all the evidence so that someone would notice and take action. In this respect, your comments are out of order.
If you don't take action now to stop these sorts of things in the future, you should:
- Set up a separate Game Mods page with info on what to do in the Help section AND
- Actively moderate any cheating accusations.
THEN when someone does this, you can berate them as much as you want.
