>From the player's viewpoint:

Normal play is the way I play the game.  All others who play the 
game differently are engaging in degrees of abnormal play.  Abnormal 
play which irritates me is known as disruptive play.  Abnormal play 
which I find offensive is known as harassment.  Abnormal play 
which adversely affects my play is known as cheating.  

It's pretty simple really.  ;)
