Thank you Kurgan! Thats the kind of response I was looking for, I'm the first to admit that I'm no expert on this and its the very reason why I brought the topic up.
The server in question did have an admin mod so its very plausable that he was using some exploit.
I would consider scripts cheating as the point of the game is to play against a player, not some piece of code. I do believe I have encountered this though I'm still able to beat them so its not too big of a deal.
and I don't consider them cheaters, simply bringing it up as a possible reason for their disdain.
I will admit that I did get a bit testy, can you blame me? All I was met with was animosity, I can't help but reply with some off commentary though I do try to keep it tasteful.
