I'm not worried about cheating or collusion in my game. If you're worried about marked cards, don't be cheap -- open new decks.
I deal my game -- all night long. I *might* put the turn and river out early, if post-flop action is slow and I need to hit the head or grab a beer, at most once or twice an evening.
IMO, putting the entire board out early changes nothing about the hand. I personally have no problem with anyone who does this at any game.
But if you repeatedly foul the board, for *any* reason, you'll hear about it at a minimum, be asked to leave at the maximum, and probably not be allowed back.
