    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    Score is not possible to achieve with normal gameplay. All points increments are divisible by 50.

    There is a glitch that does result in scores ending in something other than 50 or 00, however, this track's ruleset does not allow the exception for using glitches.

    Either the player used the glitch and the score should be removed, or the player did not use the glitch and someone entered the score wrong and the score should be removed.

    There is a secret trick that involves you collecting a certain number of hearts on the first stage, after which you lose a life then collect the spinach and hit Bluto. This causes a massive number of points.

    I had asked about this and apparently there was no rule against it.
