NO WAY. If you talk of respect, anyone who cheats by using dumps for their lab or for anything else disrespects me, the certification and every other CCIE who has worked their arse off to legitimately get their digits. This level of disrespect strikes directly through the heart of the technical and certification process and if FAR more disrespectful than any stupid four letter word than someone can call him.
Dear Noob, no matter how much you yell or scream, you can never prove you didnt use dumps. Remember that. I have seen dumpers to be very skilled engineers passing all the interviews and currently are abroad in gold partners and largest ISPs of middle-east. But they dumped the lab. You and many others attempted something that was already compromised, no matter how much we scream now, the integrity is already lost. You know in your heart how much you worked hard, but you can never prove it.
Cisco disrespected its certifications itself by allowing dumps in the market in first place. If Cisco cant put a ban on them, who else would do it ? Cisco itself let the integrity fall, not the dumpers. They just used what they got. I am not favouring them, but i am not abusing them too.
My dearest apologies but i count myself accused to above statements as well. All of my juniors and friends encouraged me to attempt the lab, but none of them would have ever vouched that i didnt use the dumps. This is fact and i live with it. You better accept the fact too :-)
I know my comments are offensive but just trying to explain the mess we are all in..
