"I got a misdemeanor for cussing on Xbox Live"

GameGirl.com's bunnyXablaze writes:

"The person stated that it was illegal/arrestable offence in the state of Virginia for cussing over telecommunication lines. Now anybody who has ever been to the state of Virginia, would understand that if this was true 70% of Virginia would have been arrested for it at some point in time. So I laughed it off, and went along with my buisness.

I later decided to google it..."

damn i go wild with the language when playin an intense match on xbox live.

sonarus3480d ago

I really don't see the need to cuss when playing online. It downgrades the use of voice chat.

Bleucrunch3480d ago

people are just too sensitive nowadays

clevernickname3480d ago

Yes, sonarus, just the other day I had a rather in-depth discussion over Xbox live regarding Mersenne prime numbers.

/sarcasm

OK, I sort of get your point, but in the heat of battle I don't see what is so wrong with a little trash talk and a few unguarded comments on your opponent. If you don't like the salty talk take your game private where you can discuss fine wines and the stock market to your heart's content.

Everybody trash talks. Trash talking is the whole point of voice chat. But when someone is losing and they start screaming fvk fvk your a f@ggot e.t.c. even though i am not offended or i'm not even the person being insulted its just irritating

i cus during tight matches of Warhawk when it looks like the people on the team don't know what they're doing.

My motto is to never say anything online or on live that I wouldn't say directly to the person's face. I just wish more people were like that. Hiding behind a computer/live account really brings out the a-hole in some people.

I cuss when i get kidnapped by a random plane lol. I always try to pick up people i see walking aimlessly and carry them over to a plane but no one trusts me. Kidnappers have given nice guys like me a bad name. lol

EZCheez3480d ago

Nothing is more annoying than having a teammate on Warhawk cuss at his entire team and b*tch and moan when you at losing at Warhawk. You would at least think the guy whining should at least be the top player right?

NO.

It's always some loser who isn't even averaging in the top 5. Why the hell do people feel the need to complain about others when they're doing just as bad as everyone else?

Panthers3480d ago

Bubbles for you because that is the most true statement in the world. I am sick of people getting offended by everything.

I cuss. It is how I talk for the most part. And when I get angry I cuss a lot, especially online. I got most of that from Socom 2 pissing me off all of the time.

However, that is how a judge how good an online game is. If I am that willing to get that mad at it and into it, then it is usually an awesome game.

he quotes:

"§ 18.2-427. Use of profane, threatening or indecent language over public airways.

If any person shall use obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, over any telephone or citizens band radio, in this Commonwealth, he shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. "

PUBLIC AIRWAYS. Xbox Live is a PRIVATE service. I wouldnt fall under the realm of 'public airways'.

It's why the government can't regulate cable TV content. The government owns the airways, the cable company owns the cable.

Tempist3480d ago

Foul mouth brat! In my day the locked us up for thinking of saying a bad word... Days in advance!

eagle213480d ago
