I have a suspicion that most reports the security team receives are false, unfounded claims.

Too many people are too quick to hit that report button on people they suspect without any investigation.  Pretend that any time you report a player somebody will get banned, you or them. If your report is true, they get banned; if you make a false report, you get banned.

I've kept track with quite a few that have still yet to be banned.

Only when a developer is really bored.

I dont think they ban people; my reasoning for this is that on previous forums, every day you had someone complaining that they had been reset and it wasnt them it was there mate I havent seen any on here!

Of topic slightly how can you follow a player from one lobby to another, tell you why i ask, the other day caught two boosters (who i reported) and they quickly backed out. I joined another lobby and there they were again, I called them out again but lost them when they backed out. Would love to follow people who do this and keep calling them out.

There has been one or two of those types of threads, but you're right, nowhere near as many as in previous CoD.  From the developer perspective, I dread to think how many reports they get daily, it would demand a huge amount of resource to take the appropriate action in good time.  What annoys me is the boosters and cheats do it in public lobbies spoiling the matches for the legit players.  Had a match last nght with three different sets of boosters, taking six out of twelve player slots.  Ridiculous, but all you can do is report, leave lobby and hope the next one has legit players.

To answer your off topic question.  It all depends how many players are online and playing the game type with the same preference settings as you.  I had a guy following me from lobby to lobby one night (all he did was follow and annoy his team mates instead of playig the game).  I left the lobby and started a new match only to find he appeared again, and then again.  When I saw him again the following day I switched preference and haven't seen him since.

They do get banned. Its just not as quickly as we would like, but it happens all the time.
