That's an important point. Supposedly this is a game where you don't behave that way if you're playing on Freedom. I think it would diminish a lot if authorities said to these offenders "We know what you did. It was within loopholes of the rules, but it's not something we want in this game. This is your warning." Also, I don't think in any of the servers it's acceptable to pretend to be friends with a host, and directly steal from them and run off for your own profit. I mean all's fair in love and war and all, but that's just skanky. It's not "spying for your team."
What really surprises me is when other players try to hush it up. That I cannot figure out.
