Wanna get banned from Modern Warfare 3? Here's How!

A post has popped up on the Call of Duty community forums, posted by FourZeroTwo, highlighting the conditions under which users could get banned, and severity for repeat offenders.

I was curious, now I know:


a. Boosting - Any player demonstrating 'game abuse' in the form of organizing cooperative or single game play for the purpose of gaining experience, prestige, score, weapon levels, icons, titles or other related in-game unlocks.


( i ) First Offense: With proper verification, user is banned for 48 hours and a stats reset.


(ii) Second Offense: With proper verification, user is banned for 48 hours and a stats reset, and a permanent ban from leaderboards.


(iii) Third Offense: With proper verification, user is banned for 7 days and a stats reset, and a permanent ban from leaderboards.




b. Cheating - Any player demonstrating 'game abuse' in the form of unknown boosting, glitching, hacking or other related offenses for the purpose of gaining experience, prestige, score, weapon levels, icons, titles or other related in-game unlocks.


( i ) First Offense: With proper verification, user is banned for 48 hours and a stats reset.


(ii) Second Offense: With proper verification, user is banned for 48 hours and a stats reset, and a permanent ban from leaderboards.


(iii) Third Offense: With proper verification, user is banned for 7 days and a stats reset, and a permanent ban from leaderboards.



c.
