EG being banned from mottos and gamertags

If you try to put EG space (insert word) it wont let you.

Also having EG in front of you gamertag makes the tag already taken. I have not been able to find an instance where it hasnt been taken. And i have tried using random letters.

Can anyone give me a reason as to why?

There's been instances in the past where Microsoft has reserved gamertags for various reasons. It's possible they might be for a company of some sort, or something to do with gaming of course. I doubt you'll be able to find out the exact reason as to why it's done but I'm sure you'll find out soon.

Spamming the forum would just get the accounts banned from the forum and perhaps from Live if it is bad enough, so I would not suggest your members do that.

Also from a piece of your membership terms posted elsewhere, it seems that you allow gamertag sharing. Well I'm afraid that Microsoft do not allow that, so  your Terms of Use would seem to be in conflict with theirs.

It's worth pointing out that there's a professional gaming team known as Evil Geniuses or EG for short. It could be why the acronym has now been locked off.

Having another group that also uses EG shouldn't lead to us all not being able to put EG, eg or e.g. in our motto's tho. Also, why can't 2 groups have the same acronym? It's not like they have the same name. That's like saying MySpace and MicroSoft can both be known as MS so neither of them is allowed to use the letters MS in anything they do.

EG is nothing but a respectfull gaming community. Its meant for people who want to get away from all the trash talking the bantering and to play with people you can call family. We look out for one another and help one another out. This situation will hurt us greatly. At the end of are speech it says to change your Motto to EG1. As  for Gamertag sharing...Im not sure where we have that??? Is it the Branch Tags because If so thats just more money in the pockets of Microsoft. The only logical explanation is the Company. But other than that there is no reason why EG should be banned.

Microsoft should work with us, Not Against

If it involves account sharing in any way then it's a no no on XBL regardless of intent.

Endeavorous I wouldn't say Spamming, more of questioning their reasoning and that we shouldn't be banned of force to change our Gamer Tag Cause of another Clan causing trouble. They need to punish the individuals not our clan tag as a whole.

I highly doubt that. MS would've banned the accounts that were doing the dodgy stuff (account sharing and the like) and sent you on your way instead of just banning a single acronym and leaving the dodgy accounts untouched.
