    Both irrelevant. The original comment is essentially "all Russians cheat / Russians are the biggest cheaters" - whether someone cheats or not isn't based on servers.

    The thread I saw (which I will attempt to find this evening) showed that the USA had the highest number of banned, cheating accounts.

    No, but the visibility of cheaters is SOLELY linked to the servers you play on. Hence, FAR from irrelevant if someone is basing their statement on their own experiences.

    It wasn't based on someones own experience, it was globally...which is the point the original poster was trying to make / claim, so it was still someone irrelevant...

    Wrong.

    A recent post on the CS:GO sub reddit showed that the majority of cheaters (caught) as of Feb this year, were from the USA, by 3 / 4% - cant link to the thread as I am in work. Just because someone is better than you, or you have a bad game, does not mean they are cheating
    Just ask the Olympic association if they cheat?

    It's not Xenophobic to blame the very people who are reported to be the guilty party, we should cut Russia of the web, like North Korea. Just cut all the cables.

    Re: Steam Stealer malware begins to proliferate says Kaspersky Labs

    You'd start WW3 over a few hackers in CS:GO? Russia also has the capability to cut important undersea cables, which north korea lacks, and would inconvenience the internet browsing of western users, and we haven't cut north korea from the web - the NK government simply doesn't allow most citizens to connect to it.

    Re: Steam Stealer malware begins to proliferate says Kaspersky Labs

    That trading thing delay used to annoy me to hell, but I kinda get it. Was a problem when getting a new PC.

    Also some suspicion is always healthy whenever you get an email from any company you deal with (and has your money or access to your money).
