Microsoft bans Xbox users for swearing

Written by Nick Farrell



Will have no customers by the end of the month

Microsoft appears to be doing a good job killing off its business by trying to satisfy the US’s Religious Right.

According to The Verge swearing on an Xbox One console while sharing your gameplay recordings on Xbox Live might be a bad idea. Redmond has been banning users after they allegedly uploaded videos laced with excessive profanity. These temporary punishments can range from an Xbox Live ban to barring users from using the Upload Studio function and their Kinect cameras.

Microsoft has also clarified that these videos violate the code of conduct for its Xbox Live service and has issued the following statement.

"We take code of conduct moderation via Upload Studio very seriously. We want a clean, safe, and fun environment for all users. Excessive profanity as well as other code of conduct violations will be enforced upon and result in suspension of some or all privileges on Xbox Live."

Like most moral codes based on knee jerk religious codes, it is not clear what constitutes "excessive profanity.” However we would have thought that anyone who can play a game and lose without "excessive profanity” is probably so anal they will explode.
