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.
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 :)
