My friends trying to get a new gamertag.. He thought up "The Grapest". Unfortunatly, Microsoft wont allow it. Heres his letter to XBL Support

Congratulations, Xbox Live, on screwing personal identity in the posterior. I just spent several hours trying to come up with a Gamertag which referenced Whitest Kids You Know's "The Grapest" short. After hundreds of failed--and often absurdly obscure--attempts which told me the Gamertag was "in use," I realized that the service was, in fact, raping me.

What was really happening, you see, is that Xbox Live was blocking the word "rape" in every possible way, shape, and form. Which means I can't even call myself a freaking grape.

I find this highly offensive, as I consider myself entitled to the ability of naming myself after a god damned fruit. For Christ's sake, I live in America. Apparently freedom of speech doesn't allow me to say rape on Xbox Live.

I find this rather ironic, considering the most adequate description for the hindrances placed on Gamertag diversity involves the word "rape" and "ass."

Thanks for raping my identity. In the ass.

Sincerely,
The Grapest
