Mishaps at Microsoft, Word censor is down, swearing gamertags allowed

Been annoyed at having to have a gamertag that isn't offensive or abuse? Well today is your lucky day! Somehow Microsoft has had it's profanity filter disabled and for a limited time (until they fix it) you may have any uncensored gamertag that you want. All you have to do is change your gamertag to whatever you want. However, Microsoft has not changed their ToS so you should be aware that you will probably be banned for doing this if you are prepared to risk your account. note the code of conduct had not changed "Don't create a gamertag, profile content, Avatar action, Avatar content, or in-game content that other users may be offended by. This includes, without limitation, anything related to or suggestive of: profane words/phrases, topics or content of a sexual nature, hate speech (including but not limited to racial, ethnic, or religious slurs), illegal drugs/controlled substances, or illegal activities."

Will def be banned for this, and they can see past tags/profiles, so changing it again doesn't work.

@ below, it's a case by case thing, if you go super racist or have had prior incidents then ban is possible.

i am sure that all swear word gamertags will just be told to reset but banning users should not be ruled out

You'd be pretty dumb to do it, you're going to get banned/reset.

lol glitch but im sure they will either make people change or id like to see harsh justice for anyone who is immature enough to do so

I wouldn't do it. they have banned for less.

I was banned for having "@SS" in my motto. my motto was "Kick @SS and take names" and that got me banned for two days.

had that motto for about 2 years before they banned me.

i wasn't mad or anything i thought it was pretty funny.
