How many times have we badly beaten some kids in a friendly game of Halo 2 only to hear a string of profanities, racial epithets and the like either during or after the game? It seems that some of our fellow gamers cannot communicate without swearing, name-calling and trash talking. Now, I know what you are thinking, "What's wrong with a little swearing or trash talking after a particularly intense engagement in online multiplayer mayhem?" I agree I've been tempted to utter an expletive after getting killed by the same opponent several times in a row, or perhaps crouch down on the face of said opponent after returning the favor, however these should be the exception rather than the rule. After enjoying Halo 2 for over a year and a half, I've seen and heard just about everything, or at least come to understand the general online experience.
