Like I mentioned in the other thread I received a 7 day ban for having the f word in my bio, totally disproportionate punishment for the crime lol.

They're not quite all there at Xbox live ...

I received a nice 48 hour ban about 4 years ago for having the word 'Ass' in my Moto. One of my friends nicknames is 'Biddy' and my moto read 'Biddy, your an Ass!' ( it was a personal joke between the two of us)

I thought it was hilarious at the time, not only because some sore b**tard must have reported me for it but because Microsoft deemed it offensive.

It was probably some some ass who couldn't handle being beaten online, the gaming community is full of sore losers. Just check out FIFA, wow i don't think it's possible to avoid rage quitters

I got a 7 day ban a few year back for having the comment "My Xbox is an overpriced hair dryer".

But apparently blatant homophobia, racism, sexism and threats of violence is a-ok with M$.

'M$' would mean MicroDollars or MegaBucks? The latter me thinks

Sorry I'm being an idiot.

$ Added to any company (See $ky, $ony, M$)

Just means "greedy money grabbing evil multi national corporation", $ is certainly a lot short to write

That's hilarious.

I know the feeling, i got banned from DS two weeks ago for mentioning the word "cats" in a post. I'm not kidding. That's what the email said.

Haha!

I'll explain what happened. I was on the sky 3D thread, and some guy was point blank not listening to anything anti 3D (i'm half blind, boo). At one point he said, and i'll paraphrase it to be safe, "3D is huge in...*country name withheld*" and i replied "so is eating...*animal species withheld*"

I got a ban for that.

Some of the bans iv'e heard about while gaming on XBL are laughable. I got banned for calling another gamer 'Taliban Stan', his gamer tag was 'Afghan Stan'.

Well to be fair the comment I made was pathetic too, it wasn't exacly huring anyone even if my xbox did genuinely sound like a 747 taking off.

It RRoD'd not long after.

That's hilarious.

Oh don't get me started with DS, I've had many bans for pathetic things. I understand that they do have a difficult task and it is hard to moderate a site this size with so many users but still.......

I was once banned for calling a poster who was quite clearly trolling a "troll". I was also banned for calling a certain Geordie singer a talentless violent bully. The best one was I had posted a harmless jokey comment in a thread and the next thing I know I'm banned for apparantly creating the inflammatory thread. Even though I didn't create it.

I must admit I have said things that probably would have got me banned but somehow I escaped by the skin of my teeth and didn't get banned. So I can't complain.

But I'd take the moderating of DS over that of the moderating on the Xbox, anyday.

I got a ban a while back for apparently griefing in BOPS.

Thing is, i don't own BOPS and have never played any COD/BO on my X-Box.

Only thing i can think of was someone got my gamertag by mistake or it was similar to the one of the real perpitrator...who knows.

Wasn't using my X-Box at the time so didn't really notice the ban but go figure

I bought my console from Cash Generators and found it was already banned, and while I was trying to get to the bottom of why that had happened, some of the threads I saw on the Microsoft Forum about banning were quite funny.

Almost all of them, to a tee, had the words "for absolutely no reason" in them
