heinous
[ ˈhānəs ]
ADJECTIVE
(of a person or wrongful act, especially a crime) utterly odious or wicked:
"a battery of heinous crimes"

Quite frankly, I can think of things far worse than Gamerscore cheating to be considered "heinous". Of course, if you want to think of something as inherently pointless as Gamerscore cheating as a "heinous" act, I can't stop you. I don't see the point in cheating, but I cannot stop others from doing so. If they do, it does not affect me, unless they are cheating in a multiplayer environment thus making my gameplay experience less than it should be. As far as leaderboards, if that's your thing, ok, but Gamerscore and the leaderboards associated with them really don't matter all that much. It's like "Whose Line Is It Anyways?" ... "the show where everything's made up and the points don't matter".

Who are you to say that something isn't heinous? It hurt me and it clearly hurt N0 Scope enough that he felt the need to ask about it. From the way you're acting about it you're giving off a vibe that you have probably tampered with your gamerscore in some way and are afraid that if a policy was put into place that you would face removal from the site.
You are kinda siding with gamerscore cheaters with your opposition of a policy which does indeed ruin your integrity.

In fact, your statement is the exact reason I detest witch hunters. I am pretty well documented on that. If Eric wants to and does make a policy, and determines how he wants to enforce it, sweet. But, he has not shown any interest yet, and it appears pointless to keep on about it.
Think we may be going off topic a little..
What would you guys think if we had a poll to see what the general consensus of the site is about this?

Make a poll, but, just remember, even if every member of the site voted, and every single member voted for banning cheaters, and Eric doesn't care, you are still where you are at now...
if someone has been proven to have cheated and their GS has been reset by MS their live score would reflect this so nothing needs to be done here.

Except, you are getting the "TA Syndrome" here, that Microsoft does not understand what "real cheating" is, and we can do a better job policing them out of our community.
Well this escalated quickly.

Apparently the second chance was squandered and instead of more insightful intelligent opinions on either side of this argument, we get a full blown elementary school yard name calling fight which serves no purpose and that is why I'm re closing this thread.
