Gamertag change

So after a while of playing with my current gamertag, I began to want to change it. However, the name I would like to change it to is already taken. Obviously, I was a bit disappointed. However, I became even more disappointed once I realized the gamertag I want to change it to has 0 gamerscore, a three-star rep, and is offline. I believe accounts like these who aren't even gold members should be deleted or some other form of action should be taken because after all, if I'm paying money to keep my account up and change my name, I should at least get the name I want.

I understand your frustration but you need to realize that Microsoft has more online services than just xbox.  The tag you want could be used for GFWL, Zune or even an internal service.

Occasionally "dead" gamertags are put back out there for people to use, but it is a rare occurrence. I would suggest altering what you want a little and see if it's available (use a 0 instead of an O, add a number to the tag, etc.).
