Over 1,600 players have already been banned from Modern Warfare 3

Modern Warfare 3's only been out for about two weeks and there's already 1,600 of you cheating suckers out there? You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

According to Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist Robert Bowling, over 1,600 bans have been issued. That figure might seem small in comparison to the record-breaking 3.3 million players that logged into Xbox Live to play Modern Warfare 3, but it's 1,600 more cheaters than anybody wants to deal with.

Bowling encourages players to report cheaters directly to its security team. My favorite Bowling quote:

"Every ban unique to the level of douchiness of the offense. The greater the douche, the greater the length. PermaDouche possible."

Why bother cheating if you run the risk of getting your account banned? I'm just curious, because I don't see the justification. Does it give you a high rush to know that you're creaming everybody else without any skills? Everybody knows when someone's cheating.

I'm calling out all players who've cheated on MW3 to tell us your story. Why do you need to cheat? Do you just suck at MW3 without cheating? Why bother playing the game if you need to cheat to succeed? Where's the fun in that?
