Can anyone clarify - what exactly - you lose, when banned? Here's the scenarios:

1) You are locked out of specific Starcraft 2 modes of play(multiplayer)
2) You lose your entire account(including any and every game linked to that account)

Which of the above two occurs when you're banned?

When you've been beaten on the ladder due to a cheater, I feel no pity nor mercy for said cheater. The just punishment is taking the game away from them...forcing them to buy another copy.

Or really there's no punishment at all. Just let them enjoy single player and hear them LOL? No way. Punish them to the fullest extent to make it very clear that cheating is cheating.

No, that's not acceptable punishment. Cheating isn't a CRIME. You have in no way, shape or form been physically or monetarily HURT by losing to a cheater. Without any hurt, why does the offending party need to lose 60 bucks in damages?

Taking away SP access is a bunch of horseshit, and it's only in the fucking gaming industry where such a thing exists.

Edit :
You do realize you can simply click "offline mode" and play single player right?

I didn't actually realize that. If they still allow people to play SP (through whatever method,) I have no problem whatsoever with banning them from MP.
