well you dont make a swastika incidentally thats for sure....and theres pleny of ways to arrange 4 controllers on the screen besides this in interesting ways, and i doubt theres a person in the world that doesnt know the "bad" meaning of this symbol.

A good designer that just wanted to make a commercial would have just avoided it altogether. But i guess that wasnt the only point. Hey perhaps the guy that made it disliked m$ and this was his revenge.

Lets torture him and find out

Hey, I played Call of Duty on the X box 360, and their were Swastikas all over the place. It is a conspiracy


Do you even know anything about the Nazi party? Why they took the symbol? Have you listened to anyone or have you constantly asked open ended, arguementitive questions?

This is art, digitally rendered art, and seems we here are the most interested on the issue

www.google.com...

AS far as the list of coincidence, there were alot of people who supported the ideal of the Nazi party, but could not stomach the direction it was taken and made a choice. Many of those people resided in other europeon countries including England. Lots of people made money, al you did was point out the ones in the public eye.

I finally figured out what our missing conspiracy was. Microsoft is trying to put into motion the 10th Reich = XBOX = X = 10 and spread its influence across the world "360", 360 degrees represents the globe.

Well thats about as much as I could come up with after staring at the static on my TV and sniffing glue trying to see the "trippy" mode and the swastikas.

Merry Christmas all *SNIIIIIFFF*

But wasn't Adolf Hilter... AUSTRIAN?

This may be a fundamental mistake... either by me or by the masses.

However, it is true that whether Hitler is Austrian or not he construed a plan for pure blonde hair blue eyed Germans as his Race. (He was none of these, ironically).

(On a side note, how do you let a man lead you when he says only Blonde on Blue is Pure... when he's not? Letting an unworthy or unclean person lead you... the Chosen Pure??)

I found these Articles, connecting Microsoft to Nazi Swastikas, yet Again:


ADL Praises Microsoft for Efforts to Remove Nazi Symbols from Office Software

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today praised Microsoft Corp. for its detection and removal of two Nazi symbols inadvertently included in Microsoft Office System applications. Immediately after identifying the problem, Microsoft apologized for the oversight and assured ADL that the company is taking actions to remove the offensive symbols, including making available to Microsoft users a utility that will remove the images from versions of the product that have already been sold to consumers.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.



Microsoft to cut swastikas from software

Microsoft Corp. said on Friday that its latest version of Office software inadvertently contained a font featuring two swastikas, and said it would offer tools to remove and replace the offending characters from the program.

The swastika, which was made infamous by Nazi Germany, was included in Microsoft's "Bookshelf Symbol 7" font. That font was derived from a Japanese font set, said Microsoft Office product manager Simon Marks.

"It was discovered by one of our customers a couple weeks ago," Marks said, adding that there was "no indication of malicious intent."


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

OK, the Officials are saying that there was "no indication of malicious intent" - still somebody had to put that swastika inside the character database.

Weird.

I mentioned that the Good swastikas were right-facing. Oof the primary users of the swastika, Buddhism - uses mainly left-hand facing ones these days.

Weird that Microsoft didn't include them, ey?

And this was Before the release of X-Box 360.

Wow - I had no Idea Microsoft was "Engaged" with IBM.

That Explains it, kindof.

Altho it is not Logical, Captain:

First, they "Engage" to IBM, who is Famous for their Contribution to the Nazi Extermination of the Jewish Population in Europe.

Second, they "ACCIDENTLY" put a perfect, clockwise swastika in the character database of their Windows OS.

Thirdly, they repeatedly use the symbol of clockwise swastika in their promotion of the X-Box 360.

Hmmmmm...

Nothing to see here - Move Along!

Yep Souljah, i bet your pleased you stuck to your guns when coping heat from the nay sayers "its all in your head"good for you,

good thread topic

Edit to add
Now it begs to ask was IBM`s participation with the Nazi`s only for finanicial reasons?

me thinks not, otherwise they would`nt be brazenly flaunting the swastika today.

But they will shove it into the faces of children that dont have a clue and the people that get upset about it are the ones who remember,then the young ones get upset at the older because they veiw us as wanting to take away their play things and the hate and ignorance widens and grows,ignorance is bliss on some peoples part because they could care less just give them their toys and their happy,and all the time these corps,Gov,Agencies,laws are testing the waters to see what resistance is out there to further their goal,sad how these so called elite work eh?.

Anyway i hav`nt posted in months and needed a little rant,i feel much better now

Right then, I e-mailed Microsoft, heres the e-mail,


After viewing your recent promotional advert for your Xbox 360 console, I have come to the conclusion that you lot are a bunch of Nazi loving whackos. Those 360 controllers in the 'circle'- they form a very obvious swastika and it simply wont do!

In conclusion, I would dearly appreciate it if you publicly admit to being Nazis and send my Xbox back, which I gave you for repairs, 3 months ago.

Yours sincerely,
*** *********

I hav'nt got a reply back yet, but I will check my inbox daily!

One more thing, Microsoft can't be Nazis! Only Germans can be, they can have Nazi ideals, but not actually be Nazis.

He war a German who lived beyond Bavaria, in the strictest sense he was actually Bavarian but that was part of Austria. That made him technically Austrian but according to stock he was Bavarian. I hope that made sense!


He never said that he was a perfect breed but he said he wanted to build a perfect race with all the pure "volk" sects and get the blood lineage of the old back into the main stream which was contaminated by foreginers and Jews.
The people followed him because he was the only one who assured them of a better future and after WW2 and the shame of being subjected to the French again, he kindled German pride and brought back the old ways with Bismark's reich as his ideal.
In deperation people will believe anything that gives them hope.

So the 4th reich is going to be built on toys? Honestly how many kids are going to see a bunch of spinning controllers and automatically say "hey that looks like a swastika" or how many kids are going to want to stare at a screen while a broken Xbox displays a bunch of feedback which may or may not display swastikas.

Honestly its probably someones idea of a joke inside of microsoft. I'm going to have to say that the swastikas probably do exist but all the same its more than likely the result of bored programers.

And if the 4th reich is going to be built on toys they sure are doing a bad job of it by making some of the opening product titles all about shooting nazis ala call of duty 2.

I think we all know where this thread is heading, its about a bashing large co-operations. The author of the thread has made that very clear!
Apparently, when millions of buddhists prostrate before a Swastika it is okay but when it is inadvertantly contrived from a harmless formation of controllers it is a sign of the return of nazi ideology and subliminal messaging!!
Yes he could have arranged it otherwise but this "subliminal " message is only as "NAZI" as you are.
Apparently, the jews have not complained about it but the Socialists of the world want to make an issue out of it.

Bavarian... but that was part of Austrian. So he was a Bavarian, which was a sub group of Austrian?

As for bringing the perfect race back to life, here is my question. Why would he be the public head of this... if he didn't fit the bill? Yes, I could see him behind the scenes concocting this idea, but if you are not even allowed in this Elite Group... how do you CONTROL IT and get those OF THE ELITE to follow?

If thats what you think i was saying i`m probably wasting time replying.

I disagree,i do not believe corps Govements etc allow these type of jokes to exist unless they wanted it to.
I do believe there is something behind all this
similar to this
www.samliquidation.com...
Not that i want to go off topic here i just dont put any faith in the global elite.

Nazi Swastika? I had no idea the Asian family I work for are Neo-Nazis


Please, spread your mindless-microsoft bash crap on BTS.

Do a little research and you can find out that the Nazi Swastika is black incased in a white circled in a red rectangle.
What has our education systems come to??? (cry)(drink bottle of rum)(rant that everyone is inferior and primitive to me)

Who care's anyway, there are many other symbols that look like 'Nazi' swastikas.
I swear... I only read the title and then posted, so...I could be at fault, but I doubt it.

Well maybe you could bless me the privilege of explaining what you were saying. Oh and if you could try to just cut back a little on the condescending nature that'd be great.

I don't think the Government or Microsoft wastes time running through every line of code just to make sure no one slipped in a practical joke. A) Its expensive in man hours and B) Those programmers are pretty good at what they do and it wouldn't be that hard for them to slip in a secret or two.

And besides the whole programming business part of this thread is about an image. And I still don't buy the image looks like a swastika.

done that i thought oh well,dont mistake condesending with someone who has read all your condesending replies to others then to myself on the thread,then expect special treatment.

This is an opinion as is granted to you as is mine even tho you keep jumping from yes i think it is swastikas to no it is`nt
At the end of the day personally i think its a small issue considering numerous topics,but i gave my opinion and links which i stand by until convinced otherwise and i`ll have to be shown more than "no your wrong because i say so and the third reich is what? going to take over the world with toys?"type of attitude.

The Problem is not IF they see or stare at it - they are watching it anyway, and the Subliminal part of this Message remains hidden. You think it was again an ACCIDENT that Swastikas are all over Microsoft?

First they ACCIDENTLY put the character for Swastikas, so that the Jewish community had to ask them kindly to remove it. And don't tell me that the programmers did not know - they know VERY WELL what they do, and they know every line of their Code. That is their Job.



Honestly its probably someones idea of a joke inside of microsoft. I'm going to have to say that the swastikas probably do exist but all the same its more than likely the result of bored programers.

I have thought of that too - of this being a Joke or a Revenge from an Employee of Microsoft, who had the access to all the needed databases in order to put this imagies inside.



And if the 4th reich is going to be built on toys they sure are doing a bad job of it by making some of the opening product titles all about shooting nazis ala call of duty 2.

Let me tell you, that if I was Jewish and saw the Advertisment for X-Box 360, I would not be a Happy Jew anywmore.

Everybody was Outraged when Prince Harry wore a Swastika on his costume for a "Fancy Dress Party" - so that he had to Appologise.

As well Microsfot appologised for the Swastikas in their Charaster Code.

I have no problem wish swastikas on german uniforms in Call of Duty 2 - they are there to create the "Atmoshpere".

Why are the other swastikas there as well - that is my Question.

Is Microsoft trying to tell us something or was it an Accident?

Even if it is, you do not seem to know what a swastika is or the various things it represents. And you have no idea what subliminal message this would represent since you do not know any of the preceeding.

Maybe because you are an ignorant Jew?

OMG! PRince Henry (screams like a little girl)

Oh no! So what was this subliminal message.
...

But I did find this interesting, on a side note:

On Faux News, some of the actors are starting to say President Shi-raq not Shirock. It has more of an Iraq ending to it than Rock. Why?

it looks more like an accidental swastika to me. I think they were going for an X which is prominetly displayed on the controller itself. But because of the natural shape of the controler it kinda turned out looking like a swastika. plus if the X was spinning it reinforces the 360 part
