I love the timing of the ban. Sure, I hate M$, but this is hilarious. M$ has a set of rules you agree to follow when you subscribe. If you break the rules there are a predefined set of penalties that they describe will occur. I believe the timing is more a slap in the face to those who pirate and/or mod games and is well deserved. I have 0 sympathy for a pirate or modder; you were warned beforehand. The only thing I will gripe about is the fact that M$ is really snotty when it comes to helping people who didn't deserve a blow from the ban hammer but that is a different matter all together. Your loss is definately a true gamer's gain.
