    Since it is a well known fact that almost all of the top rated players (at least on the first page) are computer cheats. Why should they get the notoriety of being listed like a badge of honor for all to see? We also know that nothing will be done to rid the site of these cheaters. I propose that top rated be eliminated as a part of the tables. Perhaps it could become "most wins" instead of "highest rated".
    Any thoughts ?

    Well in fact the tables in General are not really helpful.

    Why not abandon them once and for all?

    As much as I don't like recognizing the 'best computer cheat', I also don't care for the concept of 'quantity over quality'. I say, leave it as-is. It's the notoriety of infamy anyhow.
