Edit 3: My final edit for those who can't seem to bother themselves with reading the link in Edit 1 (Don’t engage in fraud or unauthorized transactions. For example, don't: Lend, transfer, sell, or otherwise provide third parties access to your accounts or Gamertags Access or attempt to access accounts that you do not own Purchase memberships, games, gift cards, account credit, or content from unauthorized parties Attempt to use or share fraudulent methods for getting memberships, games, gift cards, account credit, content, or hardware Use your account to trade services or in-game content for memberships, games, gift cards, account credit, or content Resell or redistribute any part of Xbox Live) Edit 2: I don't have all day to respond to the toxic mess that is a good chunk of this community, Bungie is violating the TOS regardless of your opinions, personal attacks, trolling, and strawman arguments. I'm finished responding to and moderating posts. The "it's not affecting you" argument is ridiculous, and can easily justify whatever your deluded mind wants it to. Edit: Bungie, by not enforcing the Microsoft terms of service you are at fault. Every single account used to advertise third party services through your own site and app is another example of your double standard and disregard for the rules. https://www.xbox.com/en-US/legal/codeofconduct I made a post recently calling out Bungie on their inactive enforcement of the terms of service against blatant advertising of paid carries and recoveries and called out a specific twitch streamer as one of the guilty parties along with claiming Bungie did not have the balls to enforce their own terms of service unless it's us regular players and fans. Well it happened, action was taken against me by censoring said players name along with a threat that I was harrasing said person by posting this, meanwhile the party in question along with hundreds if not thousands openly practices blatant disregard for the terms of service every day with no repercussions of any kind. I could react negatively and be combative but at this point it's not even worth it. It's good to know theirs such a thing as protected classes when it comes to following the rules. My former post was closed and marked as answered as damage control and I was directed to a link to report said person just so that this topic could be ignored and I would hopefully get over it. I don't regret posting it one bit. For the first time that I've personally seen people actually had a conversation about something we all see and ignore and I'm tired of it being an openly okay form of hypocrisy when it comes to following the rules. As a Destiny 1 veteran I'd like to hope I have some pull when I say Bungie get your act together and actually enforce your own rules and please stop with this double standard.

When Bungie can't even prevent a simple thing like AFK people queuing in Crucible/Gambit playlists and can do that for hours on end, it really makes you question whether they have the capability to stop these. How hard is it to detect someone going through several matches with 0 kills, 0 motes banked, 0 damage in fact 0 in every stat that would suggest they are actually playing the game? Then how hard is it for them to stop that person from queuing up for the next round and put up a message that at least checks whether that person is playing or not. How hard is it to ban them from queuing up after a couple matches of 0 stats? Now compare that to how they would verify a paid recovery: 1. They would have to prove that the person using the recovered account details are in fact not the actual account owner. (you could say IP address, but you do have VPNs and other methods to mask the IPs) 2. They would have to be able to differentiate between people going to a friends/family's house and signing into someone else's console and someone using someone else's details for the purposes of a paid recovery 3. If a friend or family was performing the recovery on the owner's console, how does Bungie detect a paid recover there? Or do those not count anymore? 4. they would have to prove that money/payment was exchanged for said service. That's just to verify it's a paid recovery, imagine the work that would go into that, then they would have to develop preventative measures and/or remedial measures that don't falsely punish innocent players.
