Okay, so a hilarious thing just happened to my friend.
He regularily plays Call of Duty Black Ops: 2 on Xbox live. In this game, you can create custom emblems using various shapes, which you can resize and
color to your favor. This pretty much gives you the ability to create any image you can think of.
So, he decided to create an emblem that was a depiction of the event that unfolded on September 11, 2001. It basically showed both buildings, one with
fire and smoke pouring from it, and the other with a plane in mid-impact with it. Along the side of the image was the word "FORGET". He decided to do
this because he felt that since people were always exclaiming "Never Forget!", and using a crysis that occured over 11 years as justification for
hatred toward muslim people, and to rationalise countless middle-eastern conflicts.
In any case, I told him it was a somewhat gutsy move, and that people would not take to kindly to doing so, but he insisted.
I guess my point is that it seems a tad too dramatic to ban his account for posting something of that nature, and I feel Microsoft is kind of
over-stepping their bounds on that. However, I do realize that it is within their right to ban his account.
I am kind of wondering what the ATS community thinks about this. Frankly, I find it kind of funny.
