Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

People always seem to miss that first bit.

You're still completely free to speak after Microsoft bans you from their service. No freedom lost at all.

No one ever said you can say whatever you want with no repercussions.

People can still say anything they want on Live, they'll just be labeled for how they act.

People take freedom of speech too literally...

They really, REALLY do. The people who beat their chests about Freedom of Speech are usually the ones who understand it the least.

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.

This. Anyone actually voting yes knows nothing about the law

Most people should be able to filter themselves but if this new measure stops people being racist, homophobic, bigots than all-power to Microsoft...Did anybody else remember Microsoft stating that they would and, could change their online policies at any time and for any reason?

You should retool this question to ask if the Xbox Rep System is hopelessly broken.

How is this any different than Gamefaqs moderating what they want and if they don't like it they delete it and discipline you?
