I know this may be an incredibly stupid question, but I've always liked to be three steps ahead whenever I mod a console. I've been a longtime PS3 player for awhile now and my sole interest in the 360 is to play the exclusives. I'm not interested in the online play at all and have no intention of signing up for Xbox Live. If I keep my console completely offline, will I ever be at risk from a banhammer? Also, is there any way to not have an avatar? I really don't like how they look and would like to avoid having one if possible.
