Lethal Company has the control company mod that's been devastating public lobbies due to its nature. It only needs to be on the host, there's no active way to detect it besides having the same mod yourself iirc. I don't think that is a fair analogy at this point in time, even with the plethora of other great mods for it.
I can imagine how things would go if a control ghost mod could be stealthed in on public lobbies and begin spontaneously murdering folks, and having the devs explain that this isn't their doing, it was 3rd party scripts they allowed to go on their game. I just don't see that going well!
Hey, this is pretty much the reason why we are against it as we have no way of filtering mods on the public games
