Wednesday, November 07, 2012 10:01:14 AM GMT
While some folks applauded the measure, others asked why homophobic and racist activity wasn't due the same level of punishment. Others declared that free speech was being infringed upon -- not that free speech laws actually protect sexists, racists, and homophobes from XBL bans. (more)
