Bungie 'banhammering' porn with new tech  photo



Last week we talked about some of the dirty things a person could find in other users’ Halo 3 file share. The point of interest was a picture in a user’s shared photos file that revealed two women both fondling and kissing each other. While not exactly the most vile thing a person could think of sharing, it was still a bit disturbing that the adult content could be uploaded through Bungie’s service. Yesterday, Bungie officially addressed the topic on their website and outlined a plan for banning members who upload such files onto their accounts.

The new bans will be the direct result of a new tool that Bungie has at their disposal. Luke mentions the device and its cataclysmic results in Bungie’s Weekly Update column:

Users who have modified content on their File Share - regardless of who created said content - will be subjected to the full power of the Banhammer’s thrust. This includes some never-before-unleashed technology that will effectively terminate your Halo multiplayer experience online in every imaginable facet. In fact, the ban is so thorough that simply calling it the Banhammer is a complete understatement.
I suggest that Bungie use the word “banataclysm,” but that’s just me. It’s great to know that this is being handled with a particularly heavy fist. If you have any further questions as to why you may not be able to post porn in your file share, check out Bungie’s column.
