Xbox Idiot Parent

Ah yes another proud parent letting their child run wild on Xbox Live. As many of you know I troll the suspensions and bans forums on just about every day. I sometimes pick my favorites and post the link in my twitter as my “Xbox Live Idiot of the day”. This one defiantly made, if not topped the list of my Xbox Idiots.

Now on a serious note, WHERE WERE THE PARENTS! Sure as soon as the kid runs in crying that they were “unfairly” banned or suspended, the parents are right there at bat for them. Didn’t think “little Johnny” would ever do such a thing? Think that the PET just have him confused with someone else? WRONG.

This kid had to have been exposing himself to multiple people. At least one person then filed a complaint. That complaint is read by the PET and then investigated by an enforcer who actually gets in a game to prove guilt.

So parents before you go out and buy that camera add on for your child’s console, you might want to think twice about how he/she is going to use it.

What’s in a Name?

Some of my favorite posts to read in the account suspention and banning forum are FNCs (Forced Name Changes). People posting demanding their blatently offensive gamertags be restored. Anything that is, looks like, sounds like something offensive will be handed an FNC.

As with your profile bio, your gamertag needs to be rated “E” for everyone. There are plenty of names that can be created that are not swears, drugs, or anything sexual. Use you imagination.

For those of you who have been an FNC might I sugget to just deal with it and pick a new name. Posting in the fourm will only make people like me laugh. FNCs are almost never overturned. The tag must be deemed offensive by the enforcment team. Meaning it is looked at by human eyes.

I also suggest not creating a new gametag that is also offensive. If you continue to create gamertags that are offensive you risk being permanently banned. So the moral here is as usual DON’T BE AN IDIOT!

Still don’t get it? Here’s an excerpt from the Code of Conduct itself…

  • Don’t create a gamertag, profile content, or in-game content that other users may be offended by, this includes comments that look, sound like, stand for, hint at, abbreviate, or insinuate any of the following: 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.
  • Don’t create a gamertag, profile content, or in-game content that references controversial religious topics, notorious people, organizations, or sensitive current or historical events that may also be considered inappropriate.

Rules to Xbox Live By

Ah yes it’s time for another public service announcement for those who find themselves having to post on the Account Suspensions and Console Ban forum on I read this forum everyday, and everyday I find myself laughing at the “I didn’t do anything” and the “I don’t deserve this”.

For those out there who think that the xbox enforcement team is armed with automated robots who suspend and ban at will, you are very wrong. Every time a complaint is filed it is seen by at least one pair of human eyes. Once the complaint is validated then the punishment is handed out.

For those who file complaints to be funny, you might find yourself suspended. Filing false complaints is a suspendable offense. The complaint filing system is there to help and when you abuse it it take time away from real problems.

Next on my list is modded consoles. DON’T DO IT! Big brother is watching and the enforcement team WILL ban you. It might take time but do us all a favor and don’t act surprised when your ban message pops up. The readers of the forum will just sit and laugh at you.

Lastly don’t create an offensive gamertag or put offensive material in your bio. There are plenty of kids using Xbox Live out there. Gamertags and profile information needs to be rated “E” for everyone. What you do inside an “M” rated game is a separate business. Inappropriate profile can get you suspended and inappropriate gamertags will get a Forced Name Change (FNC).

These  things that are all good for a laugh for the forum readers. Spare yourself the humiliation and be smart. Only idiots get banned and suspended.

Rules is Rules

One of my favorite things to do if I am really bored is to read the Xbox Live forums. Specifically the one dedicated to the idiots who get themselves suspended or banned from the service. They should consider renaming it “Xbox Live’s Hall of Morons: Examples of what not to do.” Gamers can post here in order to get a specific reason as to why they were suspended or banned. These people make me fear for the future of the human race.


When you signed up for the online gaming service you were given the terms of use and code of conduct. It spells out what NOT TO DO. Although most of it is common sense (which obviously many do not have) I suggest reading it. It will defiantly help you stay away from suspensions. Just a thought.

Now bans are a different story. There is no coming back from them. You really have to screw up to get your account banned, or worse have your console banned. You have to do something way above the usual profanity. Tampering with your system or trying to steal or sell people’s information will earn you a ban. If you think no one will find you, think again. Microsoft is cracking down on their policies and taking down the scammers. They are out there. Guard your personal information and give it to NO ONE. Microsoft will never ask for it so NEVER GIVE IT OUT.

Come on gamers I know many of you are pretty smart. Follow the code of conduct and stay out of the forum of shame.
