Microsoft will ban 'offensive language' and 'inappropriate content' from Skype, Xbox, Office and other services on May 1

Microsoft will ban 'offensive language' and 'inappropriate content' from Skype, Xbox, Office and other services on May 1st 2018, claiming it has the right to go through your private data to 'investigate.'


I have hated Microsoft for some time now, not just because of casual infringements of privacy, some might say spying built into Windows 10.  But decades of wrong decisions made for greedy selfish reasons.  That has made using their software an utter misery.

Lets look at some of the new terms:-

"Don’t publicly display or use the Services to share inappropriate content or material (involving, for example, nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity)."


Its also interesting that American Craigslist has removed their personal sections, with the following statement

US Congress just passed HR 1865, "FOSTA", seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.

Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardising all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.

To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!


I think it is time to consider again what Microsoft services you use (and other American companies such as Google, Facebook) and decide if it is your best interests to continue using them.
