There’s a troubling rumor that popped up on Reddit this weekend. Apparently someone made an Xbox One video using Upload Studio that contained the word “Dick” in it, and Microsoft suspended this user from the app for 24 hours.
Even scarier, he did something similar in Skype and was also suspended from that app, yet he as of this writing is still suspended. Here’s the most up to date thing he’s posted to Reddit about it:
UPDATE #2: I hopped on Upload Studio about twenty minutes ago and tried it out. It is now working for me, and I was successfully able to upload my Kinect footage and DVR footage to both Xbox and SkyDrive. It appears as though the Upload Studio suspension is a 24 hour suspension, as I believe it was for me. However, Skype still does not respond after five hours since the “incident.” This is my experience with Skype: “Was typing to my buddy on Skype, typed a few words of profanity talking about movies, and when I jumped back to Xbox One, it said I was banned from it for the same reason, citing “past behaviour”.”
This is pretty scary if MS really is suspending people for any sort of profanity. Hopefully they’ll fix whatever “problem” is causing this, otherwise a lot more people will be suspended. If you’ve ever used XBL, you know what I mean…
