This is one of the great vampire myths that just won't die. A moving screen is NOT a violation, despite what gets argued in darn near every pick up game in the country. An improper screen can be a foul, if it is illegally moving or the cheap acts that you describe. Not all movement is illegal on a screen, which is again oft misunderstood.
