With a plugin I'm working on, I may have found a solution to the cheating problem, that i just wanted to run by you, to see if you think it would work:

What if you enclosed instructions/data inside the <Select:IID:....> tags, with a randomly chosen user ID? That way it would stop people from cheating, unless they wrote their own plugin to send that data?

Thanks for your time again
