It's an impossible task to return a game that was once littered with cheaters back to a "he's a good player" state. Even if VAC succeeds in removing cheats from half-life, the accusations WILL continue because of the state that CS was once in. It's a sad fact, but that's how it is.
Anything that gives you an unfair advantages beyond what the game intended is a cheat. Dont' give me the argument: "He has surround sound, i have headphones. He cheats." The game supports hi-resolutions, high framerates, 4way positional sound, brightness controls, sensitivities to input. It DOES NOT support options to show all players, see through walls, or climb above the map. Exploitations of 'bugs' that exist to give you the unfair advantage beyond what was intended, is a CHEAT. skywalking is a cheat. and extremely immature as well.
