In my experience they don't, but has anybody ever filed a complaint on a clearly hacked score and seen it removed?

Microsoft maintains iron fist control over all leaderboards, developers have to apply for server time just to deal with obvious hackers, and that time is not granted lightly, which is why hacked scores remain up for months and years.

I've seen whole boards purged when a patch comes along that fixes an exploit, but not individual removal of blatantly illegitimate scores.

Snow Owl (Forza 4 admin) on Turn 10's forums who has the ability to ban users both from Forza games, and from Live itself.

I turned in a long list of cheating times 2 months ago, they're still up, and by the dates they were originally posted, they're going to be there for a long time. He told me directly that Turn 10 has to apply to Microsoft for server time, and there's no guarantee that they'll get that time, or that any developer even wants to fix the problem in the first place.

It's up to the developer to request Microsoft to wipe the leaderboards. In most cases, wiping the leaderboards is a trivial task, but Microsoft doesn't do it without the blessing of the developer.

Capcom already did this to wipe hackers from the Lost Planet 2 leaderboard, and most recently the Kane and Lynch leaderboards were wiped to allow people another attempt to get the #1 and #2 leaderboard achievement slots. I believe the GRAW leaderboards may have also been wiped at one point...

But yes, wiping the leaderboards is much easier than removing individual scores, but I believe devs can request that as well.

The problem with that is this, sometimes it's painfully obvious. Other times, it might just be the result of someone with an immense amount of free time on their hands.

It's not like it matters, just base everything off of the first legit/semi-legit score.
