I wish there were a way to turn the Voice & Text option on or off per game

I wish there were a way to turn the Voice & Text option on for one game and off for another? 'Everyone' for one game and 'Friends Only' for another. I had the option set to 'Friends Only' for years now, before I decided to give 'Everyone' another try, hoping it would enrich the social experience, but, the very first day of it, someone already sent a nasty message after battling me in a fighting game. It's common for tensions to run high in fighting games, but I alternate between only 2 games, one of them being the fighting game, and the other being one that I wish I could leave communications open for. It wouldn't be worth the effort turning it on or off every time I switch games, especially since Live has to restart every time the option is set. The easiest solution would be to somehow be able to toggle the Voice & Text option on for only the one game, and off for the fighting game. But of course this doesn't appear to be an option. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, for the Xbox 360 console there is no way to toggle the Voice & Text option on and off from game to game. I'd suggest filing a complaint on anyone who sends you harassing text/voice messages, along with avoiding and blocking communications with these people. Unfortunately, there are plenty of them in the gaming community.

You could try browsing through the in-game options screen for the game you are talking about. I doubt there is a privacy setting there, but it's worth a shot. In the mean time, I would advise you to post about this as a suggestion for future settings. You can do so here.
