About Verb 1[edit]

The definition is written as "To violate rules in order to gain advantage from a situation.", but it's still cheating even if you don't gain an advantage from it. According to that definition, gaining an advantage is required for it to be cheating. Therefore I suggest that it's changed to ""To violate rules.". Ludrah (talk) 10:56, 9 July 2013 (UTC)


Differentiating meanings[edit]

I'm concerned that we haven't in this entry distinguished between cheating in an exam or on a piece of assessment (e.g. "plagarise") and cheating someone for personal satisfaction or to attain a personal advantage (e.g. "swindle"). Surely not every language uses the same word for both of these concepts. Anyone agree? Tooironic 00:43, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Well anyway, I've made some adjustments and added a new sense. Feedback is welcome. ---> Tooironic (talk) 01:48, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
