Xbox Live Enforcement — No Swastika Logo

itwbennett writes “It’s one of those questions that really should never come up, but as blogger Peter Smith points out, Stephen Toulouse, the head of Xbox Live enforcement, is used to fielding all sorts of strange questions. Recently, one of those questions was apparently ‘Can I use a Swastika as my logo in Call of Duty: Black Ops?’ When Toulouse responded with the obvious answer (‘No, of course you can’t, we’ll ban you.’) he was met with some pushback by people he refers to as ‘contrarians’ and ‘internet pundits’ who decided to educate him on the long and storied history of the swastika as a symbol of good fortune and how just because the Nazis used it, it doesn’t make the symbol itself a bad thing. Toulouse covers the topic on his blog in a post titled Context and it’s an interesting read if for no other reason than to get a peek inside the day-to-day issues the Xbox Live Enforcement team deals with.”
