I have to see the system implemented. I also can't help but feel as if this maybe be an intrusion of my first amendment right.

If you can't act like a decent person then you don't deserve freedom.

Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck.

It's a moot point. You forfeit rights like that when you agree to the ToS if applicable. Same thing happens on Gamefaqs. You can say whatever you want, but the moderators can remove that message if its against their rules. Freedom of speech doesn't apply in situations like these nor does it mean what most people assume it means.

You give up your 1st amendment right when you sign a service agreement with microsoft. Also the 1st amendment means you won't go to jail for it, it doesn't protect you from everything like many people think.

You do understand that the First Amendment does not apply to companies, right? It prohibits the GOVERNMENT from limiting your speech (though the Supreme Court has caveated that).

Using Microsoft's services is an implied agreement to abide by their rules.

I HATE seeing incorrect information, regardless of whether it is my preferred system.

your right only extend to the point where they infringe on others. (read the preamble)

also a private network can set its own rules with a ToU wich you agreed to like gamefaqs.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.
