    Polit correctness, polit correctness and again polit correctness! People from other countries say A but Australians say nothing has happened. Amazing things are happening in this part of the world.

    Which is what I said!

    If they are then I don't think Storey knows anything about it beyond what is on the public record about the two recent mobile phone defaults by IMs. Posters asked him to substantiate his claim and then he posted Ian Rogers' article from "An Australian Online Newspaper". To the extent that the article quoted commented on Australian cheating at all, it said that cheaters are typically weak teenagers and said that Australia had had two such.

    Anyway we may never know more as he says he has quit the forum because of his posts being moderated.
