Bowling went on to explain how gamers can report cheaters:

Theres a button in game after a match. Click on them in the lobby and it gives option to "View Gamercard" + "Report Player"

stats are always recorded, we can verify and detect cheating without video proof.

How long a gamer is banned depends on what they did:

Every ban unique to the level of douchiness of the offense. The greater the douche the greater the length.
