My wife has a PS3 and has been banned for 1 week unfairly. She has been abused via a game and we followed instructions as Sony provided us with - to report the abuse. We did and our console got banned for over-reporting.

Please can somebody help me to unban the console - this ban is totally unfair and my wife deserves her console back.

I have yellowdog linux installed and if anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

Hi,
Talking to Sony for the last 8 months has led to this 1 week console suspension and following their advice.
Does anyone realise that on PSN you can be a victim of racial sexual abuse etc... and when you ring up to complain or use the built in report tool from within some games you can end up with a ban for over reporting offensive content.
Sony in this case Sony London studios have got serious problems and have no control over their automated moderation system.
I have been fighting them for almost 1 year and for over using their report tool they banned my console and my sons for 1 week.
As you can imagine i am really angry at this and the 1 week suspension i can live with but not the injustice behind it.
If anyone has any tips please feel free to PM me

What do you mean by "over-reporting"? Were you filing more than one report per offense? Why was your son's console banned - were you having him report as well? If so, were they the same event, or a seperate one?

Sounds kinda like you're saying that you've been calling sony for 8 months because some people you played online with had offensive language... you do know there's not much Sony can do about that, right?

Yes you are correct Sony can do nothing about this because of the way their system is managed.
The same account was only ever used to report each individual case.
Offensive language is unfortunately part of everyday Internet life and can be easily tolerated, but this case against Sony goes far beyond what i can type in a public forum.
Please close this thread.
Regards

Maybe some people dont want small kids to hear some pissed off player using foul language. I dont agree with Sony banning chipper36 for reporting some one. Kinda is backwards of what should have happened.

And skipper132 keep those kinds of post up and you will deserve to get banned from here.

This thread reeks of BS and makes no sense. What does it have to do with Linux and how did 7 months of "talking" to SONY lead to a 1 week ban. Close it because you have no details or evidence? Sure thing...
