Looks like another gamertag bites the dust. This time, BenDoverx was removed. But was it rightfully so?
that could be placed in their next update... What they should have is a section where we select whether we see ALL gamertags or not. Those that we do not see will be the ones MS deems inapropriate. That way, those that are "inapropriate" will be unseen by the kiddy accounts and also those folk who selected the option to not see the gamertags MS deemed inapropriate. Just like a parent can select whether the Xbox can see R-rated movies or play M-rated games they should have a selector that allows folk to see these gamertags or not. If a kid account is playing PGR4 on Live, the MS server will automatically prevent the questionable gamertags from connecting to any server those types of accounts are connected to. Good idea? I think it could work.
Looks like they made him Bendover
cmon microsoft seriously i see names like this all the time, jus played a game of halo 3 last night wit a dude calld deez_knutz. Seriously i understand banning discriminatory names, but if ur gunna ban these "novelty" names either remove them all or none at all. Well hey on the bright side atleast u get a free method of changing ur gamertag (dam why didnt i think of sumthing like that for my name, i hate it now)
i would be damn sure to have whatever gamertag i want since i pay $50 a year. but my gamertag isnt something like that anyway... but still, people that pay should have any kind of gametag they want unless it has the "n" word or any racist names. i see gamertags like this all the time on the PSN and it never gets bannned... jeez, you pay a fee for a year but still have to do what microsoft says while ps3 owners dont have to pay and have whatever names they want. yeah xbox live is so much better right? *sarcasm* if those kind of gamertags make people feel uncomfortable, then they should mind their own business and get over it, its just a word
I pay taxes which pay for road, so why should I have to follow the speed limit? I pay almost 14k a year to a school, so I should be able to say what I want to any of my professors without penalty right? I pay to go to a theater so I should be able to yell at the screen or talk on my phone all I want right? Granted they are a bit extreme but the point is just because you pay for something does not give you the right to do whatever you damn well please. In this case you agree, when you sign up, to follow all the rules that MS lays out. Don't like it, don't use the service, but saying well I pay so I deserve is just ignorant.
paying a fee to participate in a social medium does not mean you should be able to do whatever you like....NO thats the whole point the rules are setup to make the community enjoyable for everyone. As for this guys gamertag, I don't think it was too bad/offensive still its not exactly in good taste, I've seen worst but micro is actively working on it, its not something you fix overnight. Also yes the annoying kids and even worst those immature adults can be a headache but Halo3 allows you to mute them and otherwise you could simply turn of the mic in games when you don't want to hear stupid comments back n' forth. JOY
Well put man.......or girl.......GO YOU? Anyways bubbles for the thought process on that comment :D
It looks like they haven't gotten my Tag yet
xbox has categories of the type of gamer you are. pro, underground & family. you would think since your profile has your birthdate you would be able to play your games with mature people. not possible on xbox! Its for kids. just ask siligon, he is a child that has to play easy kid games & has to trashtalk children to feel like a winner. Hi gamers, I'm back & happy July 4th!!! I haven't been able to play or download 2.40 because I'm away on vacation shooting guns & drinking beer! I'm sad the update has been pulled, it has to be frustrating that the xbutts can still talk crap for a few more days but I suspect we will be up & running before e3 or we will slap around a couple of zombie xbutts until the fall! it sux that I'm in the know sooner than everyone else because it feels like I'm waiting forever. on the bright side of things: ps3 rocks & xbox still six really badly! I'll be back in new York city Sunday & hopefully 2.40 can be dl'ed. as for siligon, that xbutt has been pretending to be a droid for weeks to get bubbles & I'm happy his gamer depression is xposed! who would wanna talk to him online anyway? I don't even think the children on live sent him any friend request! siligon says he is tired of waiting!?! what exactly is he waiting for? he wants to text someone really badly midgame? he really wants to belittle exclusives & hates the hype for them? he really wants to hear boy George while midgame? what? what? You really want home right now this minute? siligon can't enjoy what he supposedly has right now at this moment for free?!? the rest of us feel like spoiled brats but he is never happy & most likely, never will be. its so funny to me to know that he thought he threatened Sony by saying he is selling the ps3. as if he had one. I don't like waiting either but when I turn on my ps3 & see what's available & how much I can do, it is impossible for to even think that I should play on xbox live & pay for it & have to deal with its mini DVD games, hassles & mandatory microtransactions a.k.a. Leftover m$ points, ads & clutter. I dedicate this post to siligon, a xbutt in droids clothing, unfortunatly we smelled you from a mile away.
Poor Xbots Poor Xbots, they pay to play online and this crap happens. Poor Xbots, they arent on PSN playing online for free with almost no lag, and not having problems with thier names. Poor Xbots
Microsoft didn't let you sign up for live and then say "do what ever you want" if people find things offensive they have the right to complain. Lag depends on the people you play with, and where the server is. Please lecture me on how Sony handles abuse and complaints on PSN? if any?
Poor Xbot Shroomy Poor Xbot Shroomy, PSN handles things when people complain, not do whatever they want like XBL. Poor Xbot Shroomy, everybody knows PSN servers have alot better connection overall then XBL. Poor Xbot Shroomy is maybe ignorant. Poor Xbot Shroomy
I think PSN might have hidden health hazards. You haven't elaborated on how Sony handle abuse, so that tells me you don't know.
Poor Xbot Shroomy Poor Xbot Shroomy, has bad reading comprehension skills.Poor Xbot Shroomy, doesn't know I just wrote PSN handles anything when people complain. Poor Xbot Shroomy, Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants knows more stuff than this Por Xbot Shroomy. Poor Xbot Shroomy
Poor Sony Twat Angelitos Poor Sony Twat Angelitos too dumb to realize I want to know how you go about reporting abuse, not if you can or can't. Poor Sony Twat Angelitos has lost too much of his mind, probably from radiation leaks off the built in nuclear power plant of his PlayStation 3. Poor Sony Twat Angelitos, he'll suffer quite a bit in the future it seems. Poor Sony Twat Angelitos
Why would you fill even the open zone with the uneducated trash that your posting? Thanks i think im just a little dumber after reading your posts
With all the vile racism taking place non-stop on XBL, I'm so glad they took the time to catch BenDoverx. He was the REAL menace with his humorous and non-offensive/threatening user name.
that name is just silly, the real problem is all these bum with mics who can say whatever they want.
The only problem I see is the lazy finger not hitting the mute button..... I'm sorry but i hear that kind of crap out of peoples mouth off of XBL its not like this problem only exists on XBL. Its a fact of life that most people are well "SPECIAL" and using words like the Big "N" word or "F" word make them feel kewl. When in reality they just are annoying and sound like idiot's.
Seriously, these articles of people having such names just baffles my mind. In my opinion it's gamers like this who give the gaming community a bad name. This kind of stuff is what the media feeds on, like a kid stealing a car just after playing Grand Theft Auto. It's these little things that the media can easily twist and blame video games for some odd reason. As a gamer I think it's immature but that's just me.
Your gamertag only gets banned when its reported by fellow gamers...myself and others use the report gamertag often to change our name free of charge lol
The most retarded stories are being approved now a days.
I know somebody named Benjamin Dover.He is a douche.
I like how people are agreeing with your statement even though none of them actually know the guy you speak of in real life
I figured I would have ten people telling me to prove it, and twenty disagrees. I would feel bad for him, but he is an a-hole.
I went to school with a kid named Micheal Hunt.
your real name really was Ben Dover?
Then stand up and slap your parents.
That's like banning someone from an arcade because they entered COK/DIK/SEX/VAG etc. into the initials prompt at the high score screen (i'm sure we've all done that at least once in our lives). Ridiculous!
HOW ORIGINAL AND ROFLMFAOLOL AT THE XBOT BAN! SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A PS3 REALLY!
get it up the A$$ by M$.
Wait for update's so you can feel like your playing a Xbox360 ;D When does 2.5 come out again? lol
your 6th RROD. Not long to go then!
WOW that joke was so original! It is probably the best joke i have ever heard. I mean seriously i can't believe you thought of that all by yourself. I wish i could be as smart and clever as you. Everyone give him a round of applause. jif86 can take a over played out dated joke and make it sound "new" and "fresh". I bet you can even wear parachute pants and look awesome. Your so amazing! ;) ( J/K its all in good fun) Plus i have only had one RROD thank you.....Jealous much? lol
I would have my gamertag to be MoeLester...'nough said.
