This is highly relevant, wouldn't you agree? I think the Covenant were onto something, perhaps foreshadowing? Those clever bastards.

edit: yes, the picture is inaccurate. only consoles who've connected online with pirated copies were banned.

Not quite. A few people had all of the consoles within the household banned because of 1 modded console.

To say that, they could of moved that profile to another console and that explains the ban, or something completely unknown has happened and only Microsoft know the answer to.

Source? Because I'm not buying it. I doubt there's any practical reason to shuffle around a gamertag on four separate consoles in the same household.

And you say "a few people", yet in the other topic you said: "LOL! Just read that someone had their flashed console and all other legitimate consoles within the household banned from Xbox LIVE."

Someone indicates one person, not a few. Regardless though, it seems like whoever said that is simply embellishing facts in an effort to stir up confusion and/or fish for pity parties.

PAL - NTSC-J - NTSC-U/C

That's 3 consoles for 3 different regions. I know there are members here who house all 3 for achievement purposes.

Go look around the Xbox forums. More than plenty of complaints about wrongful bans, as well as admitting to a modded console and legit consoles being banned also.

Many other sites also, but we don't need to discuss them here.

Hm, that's a little crazy IMO. :o

All I see on the forums ATM is people upset about the LE fiasco-- been the same for about the entire day whenever I'd check, unfortunately.

Wish it was possible to ban them from xbox live through there Internet in there home/ip address but that's not possible lol. But would teach them a lesson.
