I can only wonder, "Why do people deny the obvious?"
What benefit is it to them, to deny that there are more cheaters than they will ever realize?
Why insult others who point out this fact, as if they're complaining? It is not a complaint to simply say "Cheaters exist. It's a fact." yet you will be insulted by those in denial. Why?
For as long as video games have been invented, there have been cheaters.
Whether it's a gold-duping bug or buying from chinese gold farmers, players in MMORPG's have hoarded gold with little effort.
Whether it's an aim bot, wall hack, or retexturing of models, FPS games have had cheaters.
Whether it's the ever notorious Punkbuster or a custom built anti-cheat software, it is always 1 step behind cheaters.
Whether or not you ban someone, is nothing more than a joke ever since the idea of a proxy was invented. Cheaters who can recover back to their former glory with a new account, because they are cheaters and it's easy.
You cannot deny this fact.
Hell, you want to talk about cheating? Developers don't even care anymore.
Take a look at Payday 2, a game that just released. Players can literally press "INSERT" on their keyboard while in a mission, and instantly get up to level 100. A feat which often requires over 100 hours of gameplay.
Granted it's not as big of a deal as cheating in a competitive game like a MMORPG, but the inclusion of Client-Side hit detection with little verification in Planetside 2, is quite laughable. Yes, they did it to help with performance. However, cheating is quite rampant. I say this not from my own experience, but by the simple fact that certain games designed certain ways will make cheating easier: such as client-side game logic.
