[A] strict new Code of Conduct forbids "offensive language" on Microsoft services – including Xbox, Skype and even Microsoft Word. This includes "nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity".

The policy changes were spotted by blogger and civil rights activist Jonathan Corbett, who highlighted the new Microsoft services agreement in an online post. It goes on to add that the punishments may also include "forfeiture of content licenses, Xbox Gold membership time, and Microsoft account balances associated with the account".

Not surprising seeing as how the entire internet is becoming some kind of safe space for butthurt millenials and propaganda. Now you can't even use xbox live game chat for it's intended purpose

>butthurt millenials and propaganda.
true, nobody should be in the business of policing the language and images posted in their space ever.
everyone should be allowed to say whatever they want and post violence and nudity on xbox and anyone who thinks otherwise is a butthurt millenial.

because as we all know, millenials have always been the ones who want to police violence and sexual content in media.

So I write a manuscript for a book that has a few swear words and I'd be banned from using word 365? I think microsoft is about to lose a lot of its customers and reputation. Wait until they're forced to backpeddle and undo their tos

someone should organise a grand day of porn and swearing everyone just writes long lists of swear words in word and jacks off on skype. Then when everyone gets banned, microsoft has a considerable dent in their customer base and may end up facing a massive pr hit

>>242336
does this affect older license versions of word like 2007?

Wait, so you can't type dirty words on Microsoft Word? Or am I misreading.

It's been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side
and said I'm angry
Five days since you laughed at me saying
Get that together come back and see me
Three days since the living room,
I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
But it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry

>itt retards who have no idea what they're talking about
Don't like their policies? Don't store files on their cloud and don't use their IM services. Last time I checked nowhere does it say whey have the right to go through your personal files stored on your computer. They're just pushing the cloud meme hard but if you know what you're doing you can disable that shit in 5 minutes or less. Office 365 is Microsoft's answer to Google Docs and if the idea of them being able to read all your documents worries you don't use it.

So does that mean my essay I wrote on rape will make me lose my Xbox Live account?

winders being shit doesn't mean it's a botnet though

it's likely exploitable as such through a virus, but not by itself

we need to get as many users of the service banned so that microsoft sees a massive dent in their user base. The outrage and class actions would be immense
