This morning I was in a game that I was killed at my spawn spot for over 5 minutes so feeling that this isn't a game anymore when you have 0% chance to play I just quit. Is this cheating to box another team in and continually kill them at thier respawn and if so are there servers that enforce against this kind of playing?

The respawn of players and getting killed during the play of the spawn, as far as I know its not cheating, just a huge bug in the game. The makers made it that if you spawn in a area and get killed at that spawn point, you are spawned in a different place and it keeps doing that until you are safely spawned.

That's not even close to the truth. If you get spawnkilled, you can respawn twice at most, not "until you are safely spawned." And it doesn't necessarily spawn you in a different place. It just spawns you at random again, so you could easily spawn in the the same place as you just died.

There are some servers that have a time frame before a spawned player can be killed...unless that player hits the "fire" button...then all bets are off.

On some maps I do see the same spawn over and over for a good 5 minutes or more and it can be a bloodbath. One thing I recommend, if that starts to happen, is get all the players on that team to attempt "escape." Too many times I see them defending the spawn point, only to continually respawn in the same place. Just run like hell and get to another place on the map.

If just one guy makes it to a "safe haven" (another place on the map) the spawn logic in the game will eventually move the spawn. At least that has been my experience.
