There always has been legitimate walkovers. Generally they are due to having an opponent fall ill before the match or have to retire during the match as they are unable to continue. Seriously? You were unaware of this? So? What's your point? What were the circumstances of the WO? Was it given due to injury or illness? Was it given to manipulate a draw or give a player an unearned advantage or benefit. If it was a case of an illegitimate WO, does that somehow justify all others who do so? I see attempting to explain anything about this to you is as about a productive use of my time as trying to teach a goldfish calculus. You don't think so, but what do the officials responsible think? If they were found to be in violation of the rules then yes I would call them cheaters. If LCW was to publicly comment that he purposely gave the WO and faked the injury then yes I would call him a cheater. The logic behind which is that they were found to be cheating. <--- I hope that logic isn't to subtle or profound for you to grasp though you've done nothing to justify any optimism on my part.
