I'm actually for MS in doing this. I spend some time playing BF2 and I certainly wish there was better cheat detection and kicking of those who do cheat.

I'm not sure they were cheating in game so much as altering their XBox's to use pirated software.

I see the need...to boot them and the basic self interest in keeping things legitimate... just that a million users of their hardware are likely to go elsewhere when the buy their next console...not an enviable position to be in. A shame that MS doesn't hold itself to such high standards when dealing with others...let's face it they've hardly set a standard for fair practices in the past..many will no doubt think this as turn-about being fair play...I don't agree with that view as you know...but I do understand it..":O}

Banning those who cheat, pirate, etc. I can see the reason. There would need to be proof though.

Banning me because I have modded my system to give me additional features while may void my warranty shouldn't get me banned.

I think MS duplicity in all things was bouncing around in the back of my mind as well Noob... How can we believe anything they tell us?

I'm trying to come up with a good enough reason that MS would decide to cancel 50 million dollars a year. Only thing I can come up with is, someone is paying them 60 million a year to do so.

True but then you do have to phone home and get Bill's permission to change his/your PC now don't you...? And if Bill says no...what then?
