MS Respond to “Corrupt” Xbox LIVE Moderator

Stephen Toulouse (aka Stepto), Director of Policy and Enforcement for Xbox LIVE, has responded to a video that surfaced on the internet earlier today which claimed to prove that a well known Xbox LIVE Moderator “The Pro” was indeed corrupt.

Toulouse states:

“Yes I’ve seen the heavily edited video of The Pro. He was policing 10th prestige MW2 modding which results in gold account and console ban.”

“I did enjoy the the explanation about the audio being totally off/1 sided cause his “capture card went crazy” when its clear it was edited.”

Despite being heavily edited, the way in which The Pro spoke across Xbox Live could not be faked. Toulouse also confirmed:

“While I will speak to him about his tone, the audio is clearly recut to omit the threats and Terms of Use violations the others were saying to him.”

“We try to do our job protecting the service dispassionately,” before reiterating that The Pro’s comments about console banning were out of context and referred to modding.”

Toulouse then finally declares “Case closed, thanks for bringing it to my attention!”

I saw the video when it was posted at N4G. The kid that recorded it is a pompous prick that’s all butthurt over getting caught breaking the rules.

If you don’t want to get banned, then don’t break the fucking rules. It’s that simple.

While the guy did sound like he was being a dick, this video is kind of taking what he is saying out of context. What is it that he cut out that the mod was griping about? If he really did not do anything wrong then why did he cut it out?

I wish it was the full unedited video, by the creator cutting it & editing only puts in MS favour since theres not really a valid argument other than 1 guys responce to something we havent even seen…

Theres an unedited version and it shows that the kid was talking about “the pro”s grandma and then the pro says “Shut up or i will make it my mission to ban every console your gamertag has ever been on” which has nothing to do with modding although in the begining night mare says im turning on my mod he is just mocking “the pro” to see what he would do :: Unedited version ::

That punk kid deserves to be banned. The kid goes on a tirade about Fing the mods grandma until she’s bleeding over and over.

There is Pros and Cons in this case but i feel like it was a total abuse of power. I mean its fine to have the account ItzLuPo banned, but why are his other 4 accounts banned until year 9999? If ThePro cant handle back-talk like a man he shouldnt take it out on Lupo cause ThePro is just taking money from his pocket because of the xbox live fees. Dont we live in a country where we are given freedom of speech? Why do we have that taken from us when we play videogames? If this so called hero ThePro decides to ban multiple accounts (especially the ones that where created 10 minutes before being banned) i wouldnt think id ever want to own an xbox console cause of him. games were made to enjoy, not to treat people like theyre being policed in their so-called freedom.

I’m on both sides more so on the pro’s because I’m sick of people trying to find ways to cheat because they suck at mw2 but also pro should have been the adult there and let lupo talk shit because Im sure he wouldn’t say anything thing like that in person. Really the pro did the right thing by permanently banning a hacker. Well done

In response to MontroAxis. I fully agree. The pro is there to ban cheaters and hackers, not ban users for back talk.

theres actions and consequences follow the rules its very simple
