From the column:

"Hidden away in the depths of your Xbox LIVE profile preferences lies an option which might just change your experience of online gaming forever. Time for a little context: back in November 2008, Microsoft introduced the Party Chat feature as part of the New Xbox Experience dashboard update.

I have friends only on as it saves me from hearing "you're so shi*, I shot your mother in the face." or, "your sister likes that innit?" And that's just me. You should hear what the other twats say.

Yeah I've heard Xbox live chat is pretty awful. This is the way I'd go too.

People abusive in general chats (voice or not) - big surprise :P

Friends Only never used to work for me, which made me sob. One day, it suddenly started working, and I was saved. SAVED! No longer did I have to hear the idiots! You cannot imagine my elation.

So, yeah, I can relate to this article, completely.
