It was recently reported that a Xbox Live player was banned as his place of residence was in Fort Gay, West Virginia. Even after trying to explain to Microsoft, he got no where. Finally, after being banned for a few days, missing a team’s competition (which they lost), the Xbox staff finally realized the error of their ways.
Stephen Toulouse, director of policy and enforcement for Xbox Live said that was a miscommunication.”Someone took the phrase ‘fort gay WV’ and believed that the individual who had that was trying to offend, or trying to use it in a pejorative manner,” Toulouse said. “Unfortunately, one of my people agreed with that. … When it was brought to my attention, we did revoke the suspension.”
We took a virtual tour around the world and found a few other places that may not make it under Microsoft’s policy.
