What the @#$%&!? Microsoft bans nudity, swearing in Skype, emails, Office 365 docs


When I saw this story I assumed it was an April Fool's Day joke but now I'm not so sure.

It's all well and good to say, "they're not listening and will only investigate if someone complains" but it sounds a bit like all it takes is for an ex partner or other malicious party to dig out an email with the word 'sh*t' in it, and hey ho, you're banned from Microsoft services.

As someone who swears like a sailor, and plays in private Xbox parties whilst drinking heavily and verbally abusing the other participants - with their consent, I might add - I am feeling very uneasy right now.
