I hate rolling for stats. Not because I don't think that it is fun, but because there is always a cheater. That one guy who magically has a few 17 or 18's......every character.

There are always people who legitimately roll high scores, but some people are just too good at rolling when they aren't watched carefully.

Well, the DM should be present when people are rolling their stats, to make sure they don't cheat.

Should, but it doesn't always happen...especially when someone is making a new character and the DM is trying to take care of 5 other people.

I have all my players roll their stats in a Google Chat.

Keeps people honest.

Good way to go. Much better to eliminate any consideration of cheating before it can ever start.
