Ppl want to close this question as off-topic.
I don't understand.
I tried to word my question very carefully so that it'd be on-topic.
From my question:
- Does the policy not to lift bans issued for hackers' behaviours arise from the difficulty of determining whether the account was indeed hacked?
- If the above is true, is it more difficult to determine whether the account was used by its legitimate owner on a given occasion than who is the legitimate owner and whether its current user is the legimitate owner (since support does trouble itself with account recovery)?
These are technical questions. About information security. IIUC.
Notice I do not ask:
Why do sites / games tend to have a policy not to lift bans issued for hackers' behaviours?
Such a question would be off-topic. Possibly it would be on-topic on community management SE.
But instead I ask if it is very difficult to determine if an account was used by its legitimate owner on any occasion. And if it's more difficult to determine if an account is currently being used by its legitimate owner. This seems to me to be about information security.
What's wrong with my question, again?
