Because its not the correct way to report players. Its not our job as a community to police the game, thats why the Mods and Enforcers have the tools to fully investigate.
I know I get mad at times and am sure someone is cheating. I have learned to breathe and play the next match. A lot of times the guy who went 30-12 in the last game ends up negative in the next one. He just had a good game. Heck, I have had my share of beastly games and been accused of cheating, but if that person stuck around they'd see me fail epically the next round.
Anyone can come on here anonymously and say "So and So did this and this." No proof needed, video can be manipulated. How would you like it if someone got mad at you in game and came on here spouting information that may not be true? It would taint your good name, true or not. The Mods and Enforcers can go back and check the footage, check the in game stats, monitor Gamertags, check consoles. Just like you can't publish an article in the Newspaper accusing someone of a crime with no evidence for liability reasons, you can't post name and shame threads here.

Ok as I was writing the thread I did think that perhaps its because proof can be manipulated (not without a bit of effort) my proof by the way is a piccy of two guys gamer tags showing nice clear at the back the map in behind the luggage crates with tac inserts.
I do get that people can fabricate proof and stuff however you have to be pretty pathetic to do that and it would take a lot of effort to make it look legit as to your liability point Im sorry but yahoo has dozens of articles online stating so and so is suspected of doing this and newspapers have articles all the time about big investigations and who the suspects are in them so thats bogus.

The difference is, they have to validate their sources. If you ever read an article that doesn't validate its source, then don't believe it. Major news companies would lose credibility if they posted stories without source info. But still, can't name and shame here, its not the right place for it and you won't get the results you desire.

The more I think on it the fabrication thing is probably the reason so thanks for pointing that out and yes they do have validate their sources and I guess our proof cant be validated without linking a video of the game play.

Because you agreed to the Terms of the forum when you signed in ?
As well as you agreed to Xbox Live Terms as well ?
You joined this forum under THIER rules and no matter WHAT rule they make you have to follow it. It they made a rule that you cant talk about baseball then thats the end of the discussion.
Just like the forum rules state. If you dont like the forum rules then leave.
"If you do not agree with all aspects of this Code of Conduct and intend to follow it entirely, please leave now and do not participate in this community. "
Besides THIS topic should be sent to Foxhound since he makes the rules. You are only getting assumptions from us.
Sorry about the color change.

Yes, I'm the same Foxhound.
There are only so many ways I can retell the stance. Esentially, we have a way of doing this and we expect it to be followed. Humiliation may work for some, but it has no place here. They're people too. They make bad choices, but we will not allow people to create scenarios in which harassment and possible reprimand from third parties can ocurr. That's not what our forum is about.
