Microsoft temporarily mutes users for 'excessive swearing' in uploaded Xbox One clips

@ 2013/11/26
The next generation of consoles are in the wild, and now that the general public has access, they're bumping up against some new restrictions with the way they work. While Twitch is clamping down on its live streams, on the Xbox One side some users have run afoul of XBL policies against foul language in their Upload Studio clips. Microsoft hasn't been specific about what constitutes a violation, but in a statement to TechCrunch it says "excessive swearing" can lead to some or all Xbox Live privileges disappearing. In this case, it appears to usually manifest as a 24 hour ban on voice communication, which some of those affected first noticed when they tried to use a different app like Skype. We'll see if these policies or the way they're enforced evolve over time (if not, you may be in for some very quiet gaming sessions with your favorite Engadget editors), but for now you might want to tell the world what you think of campers after liberating an uploaded clip from SkyDrive.
