Even so - I hate when leaderboard positions can be bought. Yes, you might have to throw down $10 on the game if you want to hit the #1 spot for a couple hours, and yes, not many people would do that - but yes, there are more people than you would think who have those IAP 'hacking' apps and can get as many IAP items as they want without giving a dime towards the devs, and there's no denying that even without the 'pirates' consumable IAP items that help you climb up the leaderboards have a pretty big impact on a game's balancing and 'fairness'
Or maybe it's just too early for me to formulate a cohesive thought, and I'm just rambling on...
