"It's not something we would ever do."

EA has responded quickly to Monday’s news that users who failed to report SimCity beta bugs could be banned from all EA games.
“The clause in the EA Beta Agreement for the SimCity beta was intended to prohibit players from using known exploits to their advantage,” said an EA rep to Kotaku.
“However, the language as included is too broad. EA has never taken away access to a player’s games for failing to report a bug. We are now updating the Beta Agreement to remove this point.”
“Quite simply it’s not something we would ever do,” EA claimed in a follow-up comment. “Players don’t have anything to be concerned about there – just some language that was far too broad in the original agreement, and is being updated now.”
