- According to CheapyD
, it appears Microsoft has decided to crack down on naughty gamertag mottos. To quote:
I was recently suspended for my "Konichiwa, bitches!" motto, which I've had since before the Xbox 360 launch. They should have banned me for spelling "konnichiwa" wrong. The suspension seems to last a little over 24 hours.
Zewone also got banned recently for his motto, "called the šhit þoop". I guess Microsoft has created some kind of script that will automatically check gamer mottos for all kinds of creative variations.
I think the ban is really unnecessary. Since Microsoft changed the mottos anyway, a simple warning email saying your next offence will result in a ban would have sufficed.
