Oh shit and he almost got away with it!

Thank God your crusade is still going.

Quoted from sevenrites:

Speaking of ongoing crusades, I am calling your TSPP high score out as a fake as well. Thanks for bringing yourself to my attention.

If you admit that you have a spreadsheet somewhere listing the violators I'll probably piss myself.

Quoted from sevenrites:

Haha, no, I haven't reached that level of insanity yet. The fake high score by mjv1967 and you were stumbled upon by chance. I don't actively go witch hunting for violators. They were just so obvious.
So let me ask you this since you're here - can you explain to me what value it adds to your life or this website to claim a fake high score? Is that how things work? Just fake it all, pretend we're someone else, make up stuff to make ourselves look better? I'm just trying to see the logic behind what motivates that kind of behavior out of people.

It's simple. I rounded my high score down because I wasn't home when I filled it out and didn't ever take a picture of it anyway. I knew it was 299M and change because I was annoyed that I fell just short of 300M. I didn't go back and update it because who gives a shit? At this point the grand champ score on my machine has been reset a number of times since then and the exact score is lost to the ages of time.

When I eventually crack 300M I'll be sure to accurately record it for posterity. I'll even make sure that that day's paper is clearly visible in any photo. Until then, 299M it is.

If you're somehow claiming that 299M is too high to be believable on TSPP, then I don't know what to tell you.
