Oh how I love being called a racial slur after killing someone. Usually mute work until they start barraging me with hate messages. The I just put ignore on them.

This is why I play multiplayer on the PS3. In like 5 years I've been called slurs only a handfull of times. Only heard a few rants against Jews. I used to get that in 1 game session on Xbox live. PS3 has a more mature base. Plus I don't play COD so that keeps me away from most the riffraff.
