I know one of the "I got banned" posters here admitted to using cheat tools on another site (for another game). Not very smart, I recall Bungie discussing this well before D2 was even launched. I hate to say it, I really do, but bye Felicia. To anyone else that plays on PC and likes to play other games with cheat tools, I recommend the following approach. First, do not run Destiny on your PC in its current state. Stop. Uninstall Destiny altogether. Second, partition your hard drive and install windows again on the second partition. You may have to go look this up, no time to play mentor, and there are abundant well written guides online. This will allow you to dual boot to one of 2 OS's. With the newly untouched OS install, you probably can play Destiny without a hitch so long as you do not install any other software on this partition / OS. I can just about guarantee you will never get banned if you do this. Choose not to? That is on you. Everyone else not using cheat tools of any kind, you are probably safe. Sorry but your buddy poster completely ruined my opinion on this. Henceforth if someone gets banned, they are guilty before innocent. The only folks I will believe is Bungie. As for them telling anyone what caused the ban specifically, I do not blame them for one instant. They are protecting themselves. If they say "You had both X and Y running" all that is going to do is give people tools and information in order to work around it. By keeping quiet, they are not allowing cheaters the luxury of knowing what to work on next. I had a bit of pity at first, but that has waned.
I don't know that to be a fact. Why don't you create a discord for all those innocently impacted by the ban hammer? You could all work on a common cloud based spreadsheet template, and have each of you fill it in. Cross reference things like installed apps, apps started on startup, list of programs running when ban happened. List out your hardware, and networking hardware. ISP. Things like that. Who knows, your effort may lend itself to a common thread. Are you all running SQL server? Visual Studio? Discord? Put in some work, I am sure it would be recognized. After you are done, create a new post on behalf of the banned. Maybe it will gain traction and get others to chime in. Its better than a 2 line salty post at least. I am surprised anyone came in here from bungie and replied at all to be honest.
Ya there is another topic that is attempting that. The only constant seems to be Discord.
