    I personally am not sure if there is any truth to this. It seems that it's probably something to do with cheating or other factors involved here. But i thought it would be a good place to bring this awareness in case it is a possibility. If this has been already posted my apologies.

    This is a bunch of bull shit. It's just some 10 year old's guess (yes he's really 10) on why he got banned from nintendo wfc. He obviously used ocarina at some point online which is what got him banned. Nintendo does not receive information from what titles you have installed.

    Here's the post (formatting and youtube videos are gone):
    He thinks that since banning exists it's all because of homebrew channel. This is false because banning has existed for a long time and it's because of unauthorized activities on nintendo wfc (i.e. hacking).

    The usual 11yo screaming for attention. Fake.

    EDIT: It seems I was off of a year. Oh well. By the way, I thought the entire "Nintendo bans cheaters" thing was fake altogheter?

    There's still no one you could trust that tells he got banned WITHOUT cheating. Do they really ban MAC adresses, and if yes, is that maybe new?

    IIRC, I have heard that even those "banned for cheating" weren't really banned at all, and that Nintendo isn't really banning anyone.

    Even if Nintendo is banning hackers, I say "GOOD RIDDENS!" I swear! What makes people think it's ok to ruin a good multiplayer experience by cheating?!?! I ended up in a room full of cheaters yesterday in Conduit and it pissed me off. Everyone was walking through freaking walls like it was ok. Really now, WTF! People need to learn to PLAY BY THE RULES! I hope Nintendo puts a stop to cheaters. Yes, you have a right to hack but NOT when it inteferes with someone else's right to not deal with a hacked up multiplayer game! I mod all day long and even I have a line I DONT cross!
