I was not comparing forum bans vs bans for cheating. I mean the number of those banned vs the number of active ones. The data is there, action just has to be taken whether it is in the form of a manual ban, a better written script for automatic detection.
If thousands are being banned then I am willing to bet thousands are still at it with relative easy. Some if it just likely is not getting caught but how much of it is just simply given a pass, I doubt that one will ever get answered either.
