EVE Online players have requested the developer provide proof of wrongdoing when handing out bans, and escalate protests as high as posible. CCP has refused, saying it can’t escalate higher than its own CEO, and protesting it wields the ban hammer based on “actual empirical evidence” pulled from servers, which for various legal and technical reasons cannot be made accessible to players. The scandal at the heart of the drama involves a player from a generally “good” corporation receiving a ban for using bots and the community’s incapacity to believe he might have been cheating. It has been lovingly chronicled on Destructoid if you’d like to jump down the rabbit hole.
