  1. Xbox Live preemptively muting offensive messages.


    I came across a short video on Twitter last night that shows a friends messages on Xbox Live. In the video, there is one that's hidden. I took a screenshot of it:

    I'd link to the actual video, but he also clicks on the message and reveals what it says, which I'm assuming would get me moderated.

    Anyways, I have never seen this before on Xbox Live. I'm assuming this is new; possibly one of the ways Phil Spencer wants to make Xbox Live a safe and inclusive environment.

    If this isn't new, then my bad. It's been awhile since I've received an offensive message since I've been playing single-player games / modes lately.

    I'm curious how others feel about a step like this though. Personally, I feel a bit torn. On one hand, I like how the Xbox team is trying to reduce harassment and make gaming fun for everyone. At the same time, if someone sends me a message that gets hidden
    by Xbox Live, then I'll still probably click on it anyways out of curiosity.

    :)

    1984 and Big Brother here we come!

    All joking aside, as long as you can still make the decision to block, mute and/or report it's probably a good thing.

    If the account is a childs account, why not go the whole way and delete the "offensive" message before it hits the Inbox of curious children, or is that a step too far?

    I don't mind it, but I am curious and would likely choose to peek.

    Personally, I am not aware of that happening on Xbox Live. That is not to say that it is not something that is happening. I have heard or read anything online about that.

    Im fine if they did it. Normally if I would get a message that would be censored in that way its normally someone a little bit salty. So I would click it to get a good laugh.

    I don't know if they already do this, but if they have a bot that can flag potentially offensive messages, wouldn't it be better if it warned the sender before they sent the message in the first place?

    I don't mean block the message or an automatic enforcement but a warning that the message contains words/phrases that could potentially be reported by the recipient. then the sender can choose to ignore it and send anyway (maybe it is a private joke with
    the recipient) or rethink the wording or not send a message at all.
