I am sure we are all familiar with Machiavelli's book The Prince. He says ends justify the means. But higher rating doesn't justify current system to handle cheaters. Cheater can send in code and get his rating skipped if he do bad, and if he do well he profit. We need negative penalty rating and banning cheaters. Ends don't justify means here, because higher rating through cheater is meaningless.

Fair people suffer (get lower overall standing) because cheaters boosting themselves up. Stop this cancerous behaviour on cf.
