         It really can't.

         As for cheating oper's, I've certainly played games where the
         oper's cheating (not on Conquest though).  I simply stop
         playing on their servers.  So does everyone else eventually :)
         A player could also post a complaint to this list.

         Like the way you were dooshing bela the other day... ?  He's
         new, from the czech republic (like most of the recent new
         players), you blew him up and criticized his spelling, perhaps
         not knowing that english isn't his language...  :)  Be nice
         (but firm) with the newbies...

         I always play with them, but do not really go after them
         unless they are in my way, or come after me.

         See: http://www.root.cz/clanky/conquest-vesmirna-rez/

         Now Pitchi, on the otherhand... Watch out for him :)  He's
         gotten pretty good (with several conquers under his belt
         now).  Plays the 8.2 GL client, almost got me a couple nights
         ago.  Bela was on via the curses client.  Apparently doesn't
         know how to det either. :)

         Sure... ask clute, who I know for a fact has destroyed at
         least one keyboard (and a desk drawer) during a game :)
