Sites like PTR are banned on pretty much all sites (although it's kinda hard to monitor its use tbh), however I don't see anything unreasonable about collecting stats through hands you've played with a villain. In a live game you can takes notes about your opponents, no? At the least you can make some observations about their style of play, how loose they are, if they like to bluff their draws, etc. Using a HUD is much the same thing.
So yes, parts of it are cheating, but not all of it is, and imo anyone who refuses to believe otherwise are costing themselves money.
