anyway here is my question

is there a link or a list of unexceptable pvp weapons,combos,skills,consoles and what ever other cheese as u call it?

There is a great deal of diversity when it comes to the ethics of PvP play and there is no "list" of banned/problematic items. Here is my suggestion:

1) Post your build in the PvP forum and ask for feedback.

2) Try your best to ignore the insults that are thrown at you by PvP players. I am so sorry that somebody treated you in this manner. Unfortunately, many PvP players blame Cryptic for the lack of PvP players--and Cryptic is to be blamed, in part--and then, at the same time, drive new players like you away by insulting them. This sort of behavior is completely unacceptable and is a sign of your opponent's emotional immaturity and inability to offer criticism without mixing it with insult. If a player has a criticism to share with you about your build it should be done in a way that does not include mocking.

3) Show up for Boot Camp on Dec 29th, 2012 (time TBD). One of the central lessons we will cover is your build. Boot Camp will be a safe environment where you can learn, make mistakes, and hopefully improve. Here is a website that is still under construction:
