MW3 Banned for being pro?

My friend is banned from MW3 for being pro? He's killable, he's just have a fast reaction. He uses no hack and still being banned for being pro? WTF is this? Why would people anyhow report people that aren't using hack and being a pro instead? Why aren't these people report other hacker that do aimbots?
WTF is this steam?

What on earth are you talking about?

VAC is an automated system that bans for cheating or game modifications.

VAC does NOT ban based on reports nor does it ban for being "pro".

Because whenever we play, everyone says we're using hack. But we're not. I'm playing next to him every time and he didn't use any modification or hack. Why does he got banned?

Lolz? Stop ask silly questions. There isn't anyone sitting behind the ban controls. Its all automated like an anti-virus program scanning for sigs.

Are you POSITIVE of this? or are you thinking that crying over here on the forums will get your friend unbanned?

I really hope this is happening... Do expect a lot of 'I didn't cheat and got banned' threads though

Speaking of which, Wasn't IW taking names of cheaters via Twitter?

Pro-gamer

Professional gamers play video games for money.[12] Whether a professional gamer is a subtype of the hardcore gamer largely depends on the degree to which a professional gamer is financially dependent upon the income derived from gaming. So far as a professional gamer is financially dependent upon gaming, the time spent playing is no longer "leisure" time. In countries of Asia, particularly South Korea and Japan, professional gamers are sponsored by large companies and can earn more than $100,000USD a year, in addition to the following that some obtain.[13] In the United States, Major League Gaming has contracted Electronic Sports Gamers with $250,000USD yearly deals.[14]

I strongly doubt your friend is a pro, esspecially not if he gets VAC banned
