UPDATE: The Kid WAS Cheating!
[The final word on this matter can be found here -Shaddz]
Well, after posting the article in question, I linked it on Twitter to Stephen Toulouse, AKA Stepto, Director of Policy and Enforcement for Xbox Live, like I said I would. I am, after all, a man of my word.
This was his response:
Damn. Here I was all for a young gaming savant, ready to take up arms to defend this kid’s kick-assery
, and it turns out that he and his parents played all of us.
So, hats off to the Xbox Live administration. You did your job, and it was a job well done. Bravo Zulu.
It goes to show that it is probably worth it to ask, “Is a lawful neutral company with as public a face as Microsoft going to drop the hammer on an autistic child without a damn, DAMN good reason?”
I think tonight we have found the answer.
And like I said, I am man enough to admit when I am wrong. I will reserve name-calling for later, when I am falling asleep, reflecting on the day.
Thanks for reading.
