It's bad form for participants to argue in the comments. Not sure I'd call that cheating.

It's not cheating. Call attention to it in the comments yourself, and note that voters should disregard it (although they should already know that). Would it be "cheating" to create a forum post to continue the argument? I think not. I will agree, though, that it is very bad form in the manner it was done, however, sometimes it's done because of voter/commenter interaction, and it's certainly not cheating then.
