Awww.... there's a new angel in heaven... IN HELL!
The Demoman on an idler who expected a hat

The Cheater's Lament is a cosmetic item for all classes. It is a faintly glowing golden halo, attached to the wearer's head by two slightly crooked wires.

This item was awarded on September 2, 2009 to all players who had not used external idling programs, and had played at least once since the introduction of the item drop system. During the Mann-Conomy Update, it was distributed a second time for players who had not received it during the initial drop. This second distribution also included players who were excluded the first time for using external idling programs. There is much speculation surrounding its release; however, there has been no confirmation or announcement relating to the item from Valve at all.
