Developments in the “MorgonxoxNelson” Crackdown
This story continues to amaze us. Not only from the swiftness of Microsoft’s dealing of “MorgonxoxNelson,” but now this. At this point, we cannot verify any of the following intel, but we would still like to document it as we learn more about this entire story.
“EVILxAVENGER,” posted in the the Xbox.com forums two very interesting tidbits of information, first, he posted this screenshot that may or may not have been Photoshopped:
In this particular screenshot, you can see that “Jcnet” purportedly sent “MorgonxoxNelson” a rather threatening message. Now, “Jcnet” is someone we’ve received tips on but did not find sufficient evidence to find him as a rampant cheater. We’ll definitely keep a closer eye on him now. We’re not sure if “Jcnet” really sent this message, or who he is in the scheme of things, so if you have any information related to this person, please sent it in to us.
In the same Xbox.com forum thread, “EVILxAVENGER” made made two very provocative posts. First, he issued a what seems like a warning or possible threat:
“No it wasn’t ROOFUS. This was a good laugh while it lasted. Just shows how quickly GS can be acquired. That was some mad gameplaying. LoL. Hats off to the creator.
WHY did they BAN the console? Not only did they reset the gamerscore, but they BANNED the console. MS took a step too far there. Get ready…”
Next, “EVILxAVENGER” posted a purported email that was sent from “MorgonxoxNelson” to Microsoft’s Major Nelson:
“from Morgon Nelson <email blocked for privacy>

Dont you think banning my entire console was a bit much? You could of just labeled me a cheater and reset my score… sheesh.”
Could it be that Microsoft actually went a step further than simply zeroing out his Gamerscore, and branding him a cheater? Did Microsoft really ban “MorgonxoxNelson’s” console? And what is “EVILxAVENGER” alluding to when he says, “MS took a step too far there. Get ready…”?
Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see how this story continues to develop.
