@OGKWolf It's out of respect for the customer. Hopefully you realize that and can apply it to real life for the better of your job and all customers around you.
Once again, hacking is fun and it's been proven. Hypixel's Watchdog bans thousands of people a week. There are definitely more people banned from their server than not banned-- stats don't lie.
Hacking comes from people who play Minecraft very often and have gotten bored over the years. Or it simply comes because they have no respect for the server, but I think that's rare, considering most people appeal to bans and won't hack again and get banned. Perhaps it comes from curiosity.
Either way, people will always hack. In fact, I would argue that smarter people probably hack servers, and I don't mean that as in "Oh wow I know how to download a hacked client". It goes deeper than that. I mean that they are probably extremely good with computers and have a ton of knowledge about them. Good or bad, that's for you to decide.
Instead of banning people from your server, why don't just freak them out and tell them in the moment that they are cheating or come up with some other creative method? Idk, I'm not he owner, that's also up for you to decide.
I only say this because there have been so many bans from this server and the player base is suffering.
