XBlive on Dr Phil

Dr Phil had a guy on there addressing the issue of racism and threats on XBlive and the unwillingness of Microsoft to do anything about it.

the guy had gone 1 step further and called XBlive to complain and they told him 10 "reports" and they took action.

they told Dr Phil they would hook dude up w/ their own "investigator" and would resolve it.

IMO i don't think M/S does anything w/ these complaints.


i applaud Dr Phil, IMO all that racism needs to go. you can play a game and even trash talk w/o getting racist.

freedom of speech. I have mexican, black and white friends I play against on there, and we all joke with each other according to race. You can always turn the mic off. There is a volume on all of them, AND the ability to block communications with each person. I think asking Microsoft to infringe on our freedom of speech is stupid.

I'm going to call At&t about not policing my phone calls too. One of my buddies called me a cracker. What if I had a bad day? They should not tolerate that kind of talking on my phone. I think I should file a lawsuit even. I didn't want to hang up on him cuz, well that would be too simple, and wouldn't get any media attention.

Nope, but I can say it in public the same. Only thing is, when I say it in public I have to worry about getting my whooped for it.

If you are on Xbox live. Go to your friends list, or recent players, and you can click on them and mute them. It will prevent them from ever being able to talk to you until you turn it back on.

I've been playing online since the mid 90's and that chit gets crazy. it's one thing to joke among friends,

In the early days a lot of people seemed oblivious to the fact there there were non-white people online. Especially when it was just text chat in the game. There was always the 'ummm.. dude, I'm <insert race, religion or whatever here>

haha.. dumbchits!

I like calling mexicans beaners and cussing at them in spanish. Funny thing is, most of them like doing the same thing back and we usually end up in the same party together. I don't do the same thing with black guys and the N word, I am uncomfortable with that. Since I was raised by a Mexican and most of my friends are that, I guess i feel more comfortable messing with them.

What would the difference be in a chat room or anywhere else online? This isn't a perfect society so stop expecting it to be one. Censoring stuff on the net is a near impossible task.
