I would have to disagree with your post Peabody, though a nice thought, I would not say "protein shakes to steroids, as TS is too Trainer"
I do not see any way to say a 'program' that is aided at giving you a benefit other then what is created by the developers is anything other then a cheat.
You make it sound like i can compare TM like you compare hardware, like a laser mouse instead of a ball mouse, or a slow computer to a fast computer. This is not the case from my point of view. Game developers put on the back computer recommendations for the game, such as 256 MB of ram, 20 gig hard drive, etc. But they also intended it to play on BETTER hardware as well. They assumed hardware would develop with the game, and it has, my SHC runs so much smoother on 8 gig of ram then it ever did on my old 512 MB of ram or 256. Is that cheating that i have a better PC ? No, its the intention that the game will be played on various PC's with various hardware differences.
My point is TM is not hardware, its program made by a Polish dude ( BLAME THE POLAKS I SAY !!), that allows for fast clicking. I doubt there was any intent for this to be implemented into the game by the developers. Just like there was never intent for Trainers, or any other software manipulation. That is in fact cheating, until the time the developers make their own version of this crusader5click program it will always be cheating.
Now if they game players wanted to use it and EVERYONE agreed, then fine, people would use it with no regret, but that will never be the case as long as there is 1 person who thinks its cheating, and I will always be on that side.
