Gamesave tampering does not pay at XBOX Live!

XBOX Live team have gone postal today against game cheaters. This unexpected but previously warned move has wiped out a lot of peoples game scores. Major Nelson has previously (in 2005) laid out the game ethics for XBOX community but I guess people did not pay attention to it.
Then again he warned and now I saw this post describing the actions taken.
"The steps today takes the form of the following:

• Resetting the entire Gamerscore for an account to zero
• The account will be unable to regain all previously obtained achievements and Gamerscore, however, the players will have the ability to gain future Achievements by earning them fairly, like the majority of the Xbox LIVE community does.
• The account will be clearly labeled as a cheater for the community to view on You can see an example here. In dash, the personal view of the gamercard will be labeled as well. "
