A blog by my compadre sm1tty pondering the lure of cheating: Where’s the Fun in Cheating?
In it, he asks: “Is winning so important [that you would cheat]?”
My answer is: For some, yes. Cheating is an easy way for people to feel clever and serves as a shallow ego boost. I think it’s a symptom of an intrinsically insecure person and since most teenagers and young adults are insecure, they have the highest incidence of online cheating.
But, that’s just a theory.
