Apparently, the famous Andre Yang, is banned for doing "malpractice" with the recently concluded MOA LOO contest. Well, he's banned at XtremeSystems.Org and HwBot also issued a 1-year ban on Andre and all those involved: Hiwa, eXtremetweaker.de, KJ and Skinnee.
It is a sad day to see such. When overclocking become mainstream, and even commercialized, such malpractice is becoming more often and more severe. In the past, overclockers, a "small community" of enthusiasts, delights with "friendly competition" without regards for prize, but more about recognition from the community and to show off their skills.
I do hope that this is not a signal of how bad things are going to be, but let this be a lesson to all to always play fair and within the boundaries of the rules.
