Yeah i don't see how thats offense to anyone and to ban you for it is stupid. Couldn't they just have asked to change it? I mean they bothered to email you anyway why not just send you a warning instead of insta-ban.

They didn't do that because a lot of people are douche bags and probably wont listen. Giving out a warning would mean that warned person would have to be monitored until it is clear they have changed and learnt their lesson this is a lot of work considering how many people post offensive or sexual stuff.Having to monitor that many people would be hard.
Plus a 2 week ban is nothing more than a slap on the wrist really.And it's not stupid at all the comment was quite clearly sexual and so a temporary ban seems to be the correct punishment.

Except that freedom of speech does not apply here. You want to be part of Xbox live, you have to follow their rules.

The Iron Chef Of Pounding Vashh!

That was in my name in my profile. Now forgive me if im wrong but how is that offensive in anyway? The only thing i can think of why its been deemed inapropriate is because its a quote from the film SuperBad and maybe your not allowed film quotes in your Profile.

Thoughts?
It has obviously been reported by other players, maybe people that dont like you lol.
Coz I know people with worse stuff, but get away with it, because no1 reports it, maybe you got unlucky.

Wait a second, you're going to use "Freedom of Speech" as an excuse?

Sure, Microsoft is an American based company. However, the service they provide has it's own rules and regulations. The moment you created your tag you agreed to those rules, so Freedom of Speech has no effect here.

You break Microsoft's rules, you get banned. The Constitution can't help you there.

yeah you score a good point, there was obviously a valid reason for it being banned, and i bet 99% of people dont know the FULL meaniing of the phrase.
It could mean anything.

I don't see anything wrong with it. I have to go with what other users are saying and that some guy probably got mad at you on LIVE and reported you.

I don't find it or anything like it offensive. I thought it was a very funny line and i love that movie. That being said some overprotective parent checking out profiles of people that their child plays with probably reported it. Their needs to be a way to seperate these children from everbody else. I am a parent myself but in no way would i ever do something like this. People need to learn to have a sense of humor!!

That sucks dude.

People need to stop being so sensitive, it only complicates things, and it's just plain unnecessary.

Even though I enjoy playing 360 games, I absolutely hate Xbox Live. (and obviously Microsoft)

Do you even know what stingy means?

It doesn't matter if it offends anybody or not. It clearly violated the Code of Conduct, and as such, you got what was deserved.

First, let me say that no I'm not offended.

Now, let me summarize this thread:

* Tussell explained this properly in post #4. Nothing beyond that really needed to be said.

* Freedom of speech applies ONLY to the government not a private institution. Microsoft tells you there are limits on what you can say on the mic and in text, and anyone who wants to call on their right to free speech should know that Microsoft can enforce these limits without having to tell you.

* It doesn't matter if we find it offensive or not or even if the guy that suspended you found it offensive or not - it broke the rule and a suspension was your punishment.

As Tusell put it, I don't have enough face or enough palm.

It doesn't matter what the reason for reporting you was, if you broke the rules they are free to do so (and frankly they should do so - I'm tired of seeing stupid shit like that)

And if you honestly think it was the "Nintendo" in your profile that got you suspended then you need to go get a vasectomy ASAP.

I didn't know this was an arguement, the guy simply asked if anyone was offened. He also said that he wasn't complaining either. I thought it was a legit question

It's not the OP that's the problem... If you look through there are people trying to blame Microsoft etc etc
