    Try ringing up the sony helpline, it's more immediate.

    The number should be in the booklets for your PS3 if you still have them (I keep mine around for if it breaks)

    I'm sure you can call Sony support, if you have a Twitter you can Tweet Sony Support, and, I'm sure E-mailing whatever is the appropriate E-mail is fine too. Might take a little bit to hear back from them if you do it that way, but it's an option.

    Getting banned could mean a number of things;
    Getting reported for any form of cyber bullying,
    A person accusing you of hacking or modifying.
    Giving your psn acct info to a friend who could be using your acct to do things they shouldn't.
    There are others, just as everyone said, contact Sony like you did and wait. If you registered your console, (warranty purposes), they should have your email acct. Check your email, even your junk folder for a message. They usually tell you why you are banned. Wierd how you got nothing.

    Getting reported for any form of cyber bullying,
    A person accusing you of hacking or modifying.

    Neither of these are remotely valid reasons to ban someone unless accompanied by evidence of some variety. I've been accused of hacking for simply blocking with the grass crest shield and the other guy thinking he does "too little damage", and bullying is a subjective matter to begin with. For bullying you have to draw a line somewhere, but it is absolutely not acceptable for it to be a moving line; one guy should not be banned for something another guy got away with 10 times. If these things are enforced consistently with clear boundaries, you have a good model.

    All that said, I play on xbox and microsoft is the opposite; far too lax on cheaters/hackers and so they're more common. I have seen video evidence of people admitting they're hacking, submitted to MS and put on youtube, and those guys are still on their accounts. I have had someone try to steal my xbox account, only to have microsoft deny that it could possibly happen (my bank records have a rejected attempt on my account, and only rejected because I changed my account information to nonsense, yet those failtards still insist it's impossible).

    Then you have things like book of the guilty and daughters of chaos. People who are *obviously* hacking on these need character deletions/account bans/console bans. It's pathetic that these systems simply let obvious, proven cheaters flaunt the cheating without consequences.

    IMO, if you can get a video of someone taking no damage + their name, that should be good enough for Sony and MS to console ban them (first offense, I don't care, they know what they're doing) and for From to at least delete their account/invalidate an online pass (future game).

    I have been giving this episode some serious thought, and have come to the conclusion that I could very easily end up with yet another banned PS3, and for no reason what so ever, so I do not know which way to turn as I have enough on my plate with my Dear wife in remission, and this hobby? addiction is such fun.
    So I am struggling with this one, sorry to be pain in the butt, and I sincerely hope nobody , yourself, family or friend are struck with this awful disease.



    Thank-you for all the positivity folks




    take care, and keep having fun

    Have you called them? E-mail is always a poor way to go.

    Not as yet, I am afraid I may end up swearing about the situation, the frame of mind I am in, and getting very angry, but it must have given someone satisfaction I suppose
