Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

It used to be that I just picked up a gun I liked, added in a set of perks I thought would best serve my needs, maybe throw in some equipment, nades etc and go merrily on my way to try and kill everyone that had a red name over their head, in any way possible.  It's only since reading through many of the discussions on this very forum that I have come to learn that some of the tactics I have used, not always, but occasionaly, might have been less than sportsman-like, according to the unwritten laws of MW3 gaming conduct.  With that in mind, I would therefore be very grateful to anyone who could advise me on a class set up and play-style that would meet with the approval of the unofficial CoD ethics police that seem to patrol these forums and seem to vehemently shoot down (pardon the pun) any and all play-styles but their own (though never actually owning up to which guns and perks they run with themselves).  I thank you in advance for your help.

Fool around with some SMGs and go rushing.

A good class would be:

Primary: P90 Supressor & rapid fire

Secondary: MP9 Suppressor

Lethal: Semtex

Special: Stun Nades

1st perk: Ext conditioning Or SOH pro

2nd perk: Quickdraw Pro

3rd perk: Steady Aim Pro

Kill streaks: Specialist:

1st perk: Dead silence

2nd perk: assasin

3rd perk: Scavenger

Play a gametype like domination and run around flanking the enemy's spawn.

It's pretty enjoyable

I don't know... that sounds like something I could get in trouble for... I mean Steady Aim and a P90 with rapid fire... I could be very tempted to hip fire that... and the suppressor would mean the other enemies wouldn't know where I was... doesn't seem very fair... as for Assassin and Dead Silence... gosh, I could be very tempted to sneak around knifing people in the back and surely that's ungentlemanly conduct?

as a rule of thumb, any gun you use that kills someone is a no0b gun or over powered,

using any equipment in the game if it kills someone is a wrong,

moving is wrong

whereas standing still is equally wrong,

using the minimap is wrong

using any perk at all is wrong

using a perk that stop people following you on the mini map is very wrong

sniping is wrong regardless of if you qs or hardscope

using any shotgun is wrong

where any ar is fine as long as it doesnt kill someone or you aim with it

all secondaries are wrong

using any machine pistol in akimbo mode is wrong

using any machine pistol without akimbo is wrong and makes you a no0b

claymores, bettys, nades, c4 , or anything that makes a bang is wrong

hmmmm.... how about if I just stand out in the open and ask people politely to lay down their armaments and enter a peaceful discussion so we can end all this senseless bloodshed... CoD -> Call of Diplomacy??

Playing the objective while using th support streak will make you cheap.

Playing the objective while using the support streak will make you a tryhard.

Not playing the objective while using any streak will make you a camper.
