I have for many moons tried to change my motto into a few of my very bestestest phrases.

For some reason the word 'nut' is considered a profanity by Microsoft, I emailed them about it and unsuprisingly got no response. I shall continue my search for the ultimate motto however, just without nuts.

How many words have they censored anyway?

I had a look for a list of some sorts, but came up with nothing but this; apparently it doesn't even like the use of "Halo". O-k.

I tried one time to use 'exotic' and that was censored so I guessed they were pretty strict, not being able to use 'baltimore' is absolutely ridiculous:p

I wanted to put "ThankYouBabyJesus" as my motto... turns out there will be no praising of the Little Lord on XBL.

The word "Golem" also can't be used which is just silly when they have the word on their site under Enchanted Arms.

"Jap" won't work because they consider it a racial slur.

Very funny that "See You In Baltimore" won't work because "See You Baltimore" or "Baltimore" by itself works just fine. Maybe they think it a sexual reference of some kind. But you can say "See You In Texas" and they don't block it. They need better filters.

I wonder if 'See you in nut' will work. I'm fairly sure you can have assassin even though it has two asses in it.

Maybe the censor is smart enough to not censor certain popular words such as assassian? Although that would contradict its self because it censors balitmore...

Maybe the computer has a list of 'exception' words updated by Microsoft workers every time a ticket is sent in. That would explain why Assassian is OK but Baltimore is still not (because assassian is a more popular word then Baltimore in mottos).

That would make sense only if you couldn't say "Baltimore" altogether but you can. You just can't say "See You In Baltimore" or better stated your can't say "In Baltimore" which makes no sense when you can say "In Annapolis" or "In London" or as my motto currently say "See You In New York" For some reason "See You In Baltimore" is bad. Maybe a young lady named Baltimore was harassed and Microsoft took action :)

Maybe you're not allowed names of Indian dishes, hence Balti is censored. :nana
