Xbox live's crazy "bad word" filter

#1bandman0787Posted 9/27/2010 2:36:06 AM
who chooses what words cant be used online?

can someone explain why i cant use the word "Epic" or "Grounds" on Xbox live?

any other really ordinary words people have been told are not usable online?

gamefaqs has a crazy word filter.

I couldn't use the words boosting and gruntpocalypse one after another.

The last 2 letters of boosting and first two letter of grunt apparently form a racial slur, it took me like ten minutes to find it in my post

Pretty pathetic reason to base your platform preference on.

My friend can't use his fileshare because his name has "Nasty" in it.
