So you could easily say wally balls, Master of deaster and Buns are some of the best players ever (or at least right now) but what about the people who don't are not active in the forums? or the people who don't play the ladders or just are not a high enough level? they are probally people better then wally balls, Master of deaster and Buns (sorry to break it to you guys). what do you think on this topic? if I am wrong just correct me but I believe this strongly

Becoming one of the best player is closely tied to playing against, and gaining experience from, people already considered the top tier. You can't play near-flawlessly if your skill is not challenged enough and you won't learn much just from playing noobs. This means that if there is somebody that can be considered among the very best (let alone THE best - no such thing anyway), or at least wants to be such, we - or at very least the top tier players - would hear of them.
Also your perception is way more limited, than MoD/Buns if you think it's just about the forums - there are many great players that almost never post on it. There are ladders, tournaments and other community events.
Also, mentioning Wally Balls as one of the best makes you look retarded. He himself is the only guy who actually considers himself "the greatest" while not even being able to break top 10 of any ladder.

This is like saying there's probably some swimmer out there who could beat Phelps on the 200 fly just because there's so many people going unnoticed. You're ignoring the filtering mechanisms determining whom we see and whom we don't.

Please don't suggest me either, I'm better than Wally Balls, sure, but I'm not even top 100.
I play a fair amount of autogames. I have not played 1 player in any of them that was better than me who was not someone I recognized from playing on the ladder in over two years. The only time I did meet such plyers was when you needed to be a member to join the ladder, and people like rayguns dominated tournaments, but couldn't play on the ladder.
