High Score Hackers?

I've been wondering this for a while; what is the mentality behind people who hack themselves [impossibly] high scores? Don't they feel guilty that they didn't actually achieve the scores themselves? Or is it a "hey guise, look at me! I can haz highest score!" thing?

its haters ruining others enjoyment because they can and they want to create the false impression that they are the best. I hate high score hackers.

They are actually double losers because they make their scores unbelievably high. I would make it a couple units over the other high.

Everyone wants to be top of the worldwide leaderboard at some stage. I don't have to worry about that seeing as I've been top of the Chain Link Pro leaderboards for 4 Months (even though I haven't played it for 3).
