    Andre Yang - Lifetime Ban

    Andre shared scores to alter and or ruin the MOA online contest. Four of the results in three different countries were by the same person. Today three members came forward who held winning positions in the Lord of Overclocking competition admitting to using the scores produced by Andre.

    This is not the first time reports of score sharing by Andre has been reported but it is the first time verified damaging to an online contest.

    After discussion with legit score holders in the contest, they have decided your fate with 100% agreement.

    After some time for the dust to settle, it appears that more people are involved that just these four. I applaud those who refrained from submitting.

    Time to get rid of all the "great" people.
    Cheaters and abusers should be kicked out of the forums and the ranking sites.

    p.s. Despite the fact that in their ToU HWbot states "Sharing/selling results = lifetime ban" we see a 1 year ban for mr "I think my money and connections beat everyone and is the honored way to go".

    Goodbye, we will NOT miss you at all.

    Damn nice Fugger, if hwbot can follow suit as well with a lifetime ban, then I guess I/we will be at peace...

    I'm reading 1 year, not lifetime. I suppose I'm missing something.

    This is something that no overclocking community, how small it may be, should tolerate. Therefore, we issue a 1-year ban to all the people involved: AndreYang, Hiwa, eXtremetweaker.de, KJ and Skinnee.

    Skinnee? The guy that does all the watercooling testing ? He was involved? Very strange.

    Nice move but it won`t solve the problem i guess...
    It`s a matter of attitude i guess...
    Cannot change eveyones brains....
    That`s why the O/C scene is derailed in 1-2 years..

    you think???? some people base their purchase based on scores that some hot shot did on xs or see them as a role model .... they are held to a higher standard and they should behave like so .... heck im a lonely guy who didnt accomplish anythinf decent yet but maybe one day i will and that day when i do i wont be a cheater just to help keep the torch of the oc'ing spirit light

    WTF is going on here?......
    Andre?.......Hiwa?.....

    DUMN!.......

    Though I don't know in person Hiwa, I thought that he was a good guy and not a cheeter at all!.....

    Andre on the other hand - as for me - he is a good guy..... BUT he did a mistake........I think life time ban is TOO much for a mistake....One year is OK as for me....

    Many of you guys may not like him, but deeply he's a proud and good man....
