It's already the closest thing these kids have to a parent

Max had to leave early this week to go stay in a horse cottage and attend a zoo wedding or something, so we farted out Dumb Idiot Ideas pretty quickly. I had the idea: what if the Xbox One, with all of its voice recognition, had a parental control that alerted parents when their kids acted like dicks online? Shitty kids are probably the biggest reason I don't do more online multiplayer, and I know I'm not alone in wishing there were some way to curb that nuisance. Enjoy our thoughts, and Max's strained trash-talking.
