Hey guys,

I'm Cypher (Mark) from CogniSafe.

I'd like to ask you a few questions regarding cheating in CS:S or other games you play.

What do you think of Punk Buster? Does it work to your satisfaction or at all? How accurate is it?
What do you think of Valve's VAC (Valve Anti Cheat)? Does it work to your satisfaction, or at all? How accurate is it?

Have you ever been accused of cheating, by VAC or PB, when you weren't cheating?
Did you get banned or otherwise hurt by it?
How often has that happened to you?
How long did it take to get back to the game?

How frustrating, generally, is the whole cheating scene to you?
Has it ever caused you to quit a game entirely or just for a very long time? Which game was it?

What are the most important/annoying/critical problems related to cheating in CS:S?
If you can, please rank or list what you feel are the top most important cheats/hacks/bots that need dealing with.

Guys, I'd like to first thank you, in advance, for taking this short questionnaire seriously.
We are working on a solution that would provide the players themselves the information needed to recognize cheaters when playing online and giving them the option of avoiding them. Giving the admins the option of banning, if they so choose.

I'd like to get as many answers as possible, as fast as possible.
Only you guys can make that happen.
