Because I do not want the methods of they way they are finding cheaters 
exposed so that the cheaters can modify their behavior to beat the checks.

Cheating is real it happens far too much and I am willing to bet that 
many people are still getting away with stuff.

Either you trust those in charge or you don't.  If you don't then don't 

If people would not cheat we would not be having this discussion.

Asking friends to spot you is assistance.  Asking others in a contest to 
spot you is assistance.  Don't do it.
