17) Because Walter Day said his scores are legit.

18) Because after seeing what a Dragster cartridge sold for on ebay after Todd's fall from grace, people disputed the scores so they could sell their autographed Billy merchandise for some sweet $$$.

19) Because screen burn and swapped tubes, rotated yokes and reverse-connected yoke pins on Gleed's and Young's monitor recordings (which are probably not even Sanyo tubes any more) both create an image that is different than the true, legit and fully original cab that Billy Mitchell played on, set his records on and captured from.

I for one can attest I have gone to great pains to ensure the originality of the 20EZ in my cab.  I bought it from a trusted seller in Los Angeles, replacing the heavily burned-in DJR Sanyo 20EZ monitor that was in the cab when I bought it, for the current TKG Sanyo 20EZ that is in the cab (bought from the trusted seller).  Not to say that somewhere along the lines my monitor couldn't have been modified in some way, but parts are identical between the DJR, the TKG, the TKG in my red cab, other Sanyo 20EZ's I've worked on, etc, etc, etc.  None of this truly has any bearing on the discussion, just some supplementary information.  8)

21)  low voltage from power supply immediately converts DK PCBs into MAME so he used a high voltage power supply on his MAME computer to convert his MAME game into arcade (reversing the effect)

24) Because Twin Galaxies already accepted it, and so it must be legit.

26) Billy Mitchell is not clever enough to hatch such a ruse.

27) Billy Mitchell was practicing so hard using MAME that his MAME play style was visible on DK hardware.

Joel's got all the best ones:

28) Looking like MAME is not MAME, nor a violation that even approaches “cheating”.
29) Any player who could get 1 Million nearly 8 years ago on MAME would be able to probably get more on arcade than a mere 1,062,800 points.
30) Cheating is like an addiction … once you “get away with it’ the next time is easy, and oft times bigger.
31) Billy Mitchell’s score was no longer even in the Top 10 so TG shouldn't allow anybody to dispute it.
