It's not just the rules but their execution on those rules. There is no way for me to ensure that their interpretation of their rules was correct. Therefore you don't have to break those rules to get banned. I cannot defend myself against their opaque treatment. So their interpretation can be anything. If they say they found something offensive then I'm basically done for.well you win then because i can't make any argument that refutes random paranoia.
[QUOTE="KungfuKitten"][QUOTE="Riverwolf007"]how is it some loose intrepretation?
the rules are set out in the tos.
if you break them you get banned.
they include things like harassing other players, cheating, impersonating mods, spamming, scamming and exposing yourself on the webcam.
are you really going to shed a tear for those people or be against punishing that sort of behavior?
i'm glad they get their asses booted of xbl just like i am glad that people that break the rules of the road do not get to use the roads.
why would you want the federal government to set the rules for a game company and have to make actual laws to punish people on xbl and psn?
the companies do that because it is their responsibility to protect their customers from bad elements of the community.
all i can say is that ms wants you to be on there because if you are not on there you can't spend money so it is in their interest to be lenient and only boot you off as a last resort.
their #1 priority is to retain you as a customer not persecute you.Well I can refute random naivety. They will make mistakes that will not be solved.
I'm not some conspiracy theorist. This is an almost unethically harsh way to deal with presumed misbehaviour.
I hope they'll go about it responsibly. And I find it odd that I cannot do more than hope.
But I don't want to make a fuss on this forum. I mean this is not even a big deal really. It will be bought regardless. I'll just give up. It's fine.
