Xbox Live Admits Mistake (Gasp)
Yes, it appears that Fort Gay, WV does indeed exist and the 26 year old has been reinstated in what has been called a “mistake” by the Xbox Live enforcement team. Xbox Live Chief Enforcement officer Stephen Toulouse has apparently updated training for his agents and states they are constantly updating their knowledge of slang. Slang? Seriously? Are they actually listening in?
I’ve heard worse come out of 12 year olds mouths almost every time I’m online. If that is their idea of offensive language, then more than one 26 year old from Fort Gay, WV would be banned. This was obviously not an immediate danger to anyone online, and the fact they have issued an apology is noble. Perhaps a free year of Xbox Live for the young man would be a more appropriate apology.
