Since the infamous appearance of [[naem]], some '''highscorers''' began to be distrusted by the main [[forum]] body, as a number of their scores have appeared to be made illegitimately. Legitimate highscorers were always frustrated with this topic (see [[johnny_faneca]] for more info).

[[kryX-orange]], who had an alter ego called '''ANGERFIST''', admitted that he cheated all of his Metanet runs by slowing the game down<ref>http://metanet.2.forumer.com/index.php?showtopic=7561&view=findpost&p=199137</ref>, and, consequently, his scores are not counted as legitimate runs, as have a few other cheaters, including [[crappitrash]], [[L3X]], [[naem]], [[Goo]], [[Bonzai]], [[pokemaniac1342]] and [[Sp33dy]]. Hacking ''was'' also rife within the highscores charts, as some people hack their .sols to submit fake scores to an extent where, at one point, every level contained at least one hacked score. Fortunately, on November 10th 2011, Mare, with the help of a few others in the community, eradicated most of these hacked scores, and any new hacked runs can easily be ignored by using the 'ignore' feature on [[NHigh]] until they are vanquished yet again by Mare. [[NReality]] prevents the use of speed-hacking, sol hacking and any other illegal methods. There's no tolerance with any cheater or any cheated score in the community unless it is declared as such and posted somewhere other than the built-in highscores boards. Such places include [[underclock]] mode, or on the [[forums]]. Therefore, the current rankings compiled by the community (listed above) are completely clear of all known hackers/cheaters, and we now have a fair system that many highscorers from the past desired. So if you're one of those old-timers reading this, you can gladly come back and be assured you are competing with legitimate competition.

==Removal of the hacked scores==
During November 2011, a cleansing campaign spearheaded by [[Mare]] finally began with a two-phase removal of the hacked scores, which filled up to about 30% of all available spots. After some additional help from [[999_Springs]], [[Izzy]] and [[EddyMataGallos]], all the hacked scores were completely removed (barring the exception of speed-hacked runs by cheaters, which are ignored on the official rankings; however, the majority of the community sees this as a tolerable compromise for now.) This sparked a notable increase in highscoring activity by jubilant highscorers. It has also been revealed that ''every'' highscore run submitted is saved on the Metanet database, not just the first 20 scores. Because of this, the highscorers were finally able to see the (almost legitimate) top-20 board of episode [[00]] for the first time in many years.
