Battlefield 3 hacking problems escalate

DICE has found itself embroiled within a bit of a Battlefield 3 faux pax as it was discovered one of its Battlelog moderators was a hacker.
The unofficial Battlefield Blog reports that the player - who went by the alias 'MrPropper777' - had been promoted to a community moderator by DICE,
and was given privileges such as the ability to delete other users' posts.

This is from the blog:
If cheating and hacking wasn’t a big enough of a problem in Battlefield 3 already,
it turns out that one of the Battlelog moderators was caught hacking in the very same game he’s supposed to moderate.

If it wasn’t bad enough that there was just one more hacker in Battlefield 3, he was also promoted to moderator status by DICE, which gave him all sorts of privileges
e.g. deleting forum posts in Battlelog, according to some reports. The player, who went by the name “MrPropper777″, has since been removed as moderator and his stats have been wiped.

If there ever was an indication of just how big the hacking problem in Battlefield 3 is, this was it.
Not only did DICE fail to catch him, they promoted him.

this former moderator really seems to be a sadface.
he used the word comrade in almost all of his replies, tells a lot already.

Why did EA promote that guy lol.. Do they pick random users?
Seriously EA and DICE should take a look at their precious game, it's being torn apart by the hackers.
