Agree fully, screw online cheaters.

it looks like its only cheaters which is brilliant imho, them idiots ruin online gaming for everyone because they are too crap to earn the ranking fairly.

I'm 100% behind the decision of treyarch to have zero tolerence for prestige hacking.Its also a really good indication that we wont be getting console bans from psn because if they were going to do it,they would have done it right now, it's just on a per game basis for being a twat that has to cheat.

treyarch, i salute you. And thanks for the heads up because i'm pretty sure there wont be full psn console bans for cfw now or they would have started with these fools that ruin blackops, i guess in a strange way, it's actually good news for the rest of us that play fair. flame all you like but i know 99% of people will agree with what i'm saying.
