Default Who are these players? zminor and md5?

They are first time players here on wordtwist and are one and two in the average score competition with some pretty incredible, if not unbelievable statistics. Just curious.

Unfortunately, if you look at their individual stats, neither player is legit. I'm assuming they'll get bored eventually, and I've already gotten used to letting my eyes slip on past their names.

That's too bad. I'm having one of my best months ever, so it's a little more than disappointing to know I have to run my stats up against bots. The real players here are difficult enough to keep up with!

Fully in agreement with your comments guys--I've put a lot of time and effort into improving my abilities and am getting tired of chasing cheaters. Both of these players have posted word totals for a single game which far exceed the Guiness Book of World Records for typing speed. My run of first and second place finishes in the 5 x 5 is something I've worked hard to achieve and it may come to an end if I can't outpace these nutcases...........in fact, the only times I've placed second is when fasteddieb and MegaWord outplayed me--no shame in losing to great players but it would be nice if the admin could some how weed out the illegitimate players........

Best,

Russ

zminor seems to have a high threshold of boredom. I see his name pop up a lot on best/longest words. I have an unofficial goal of trying to outdo him/her there, hoping that the dictionary he/she uses doesn't cover really long words.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Brian! Btw, did you happen to notice that zminor magically disappeared overnight? Hmmmm?

Best,

Russ

I noticed zminor was gone from the trophy positions today. I looked him up in the best words list and he apparently played himself out of it. His best score and words played were some new absurd highs so I imagine that's what he's gunning for.
I've weighed in on the cheaters ripping off top players like yourself many times so this time I remained silent about it.

Thanks for the reply lalatan. There's definitely something odd here--as of last night, zminor was near the top of the 5 x 5 for total points but now he or she is gone? They were well over 100000 points but have now disappeared.

Like you, I noticed he/she still has a word on the best word list (ironically enough it is "unprinciplednesses"). Is is possible the admin really does zap the cheaters from the total points list but somehow either ignores or does not have the ability to delete them from the other stat boards?

Best,

Russ
