Default News video report discussing vulgar chatter on XBOX Live

Video link

Truthfully, when you look at the majority of players are in a young age group, why is this even shocking?

I gotta say I always love the tone of these news reports ... "They're calling people f****ts, n****rs and Jews, and your children are listening"

Obviously people are going to be saying stuff like this when there is anonymity.

It's not shocking to me, but that doesn't make it right. Most stuff doesn't bother me, as most is just people trash talking or some kid who just learned the N word so he has to say it a million times...whatever I can ignore this stuff. But some of the stuff on those videos were just horrible. In most public arenas, people are held accountable for using the N word, or other racist things. They should be held accountable on Xbox Live as well.

ESRB Notice: Game Experience May Change During Online Play

Nothing makes me happier than reducing children to tears in Halo... does that make me a bad person?
