Moto "Go Canada Go" is banned?

At the time of the Olympics I wanted to support Canada by putting Go Canada Go! in my motto but was unable to because apparently it contains words or phrases banned by Microsoft however putting Go USA Go! or any other country is just fine. People can even still have offensive language for gamertags but Go Canada Go! is banned?

I messaged Stepto and Major Nelson about this via Twitter and email numerous times with no answer and no fix. It's stupid that we can't show our national pride but others in other countries can.

So I thought enough was enough with the no answer for this and thought it was about time I posted here and let other Canadian's know this in hopes that it can be addressed and fixed.

It's just dumb why they would do that.  I don't see where it deserves being banned.  I'm not trying to say Microsoft is bad or anything I love their products and I love my Xbox and XBL I just want to know why they feel it needs to be banned.  If it's just a mistake I want them to acknowledge and fix it.

Do you realize you can have "urboxisnastystank" and "mmm...baconstrips" as your motto if you so choose?  Funny eh?

You should contact microsoft support directly about this. All countries should be banned in the same way. If the rule is comming down, it should apply to all. It seems rasist to have canada banned and no others. I bet this could be brought to court. It would be big news in the gaming industry. Seems like it was just an automated reaction to a complaint, wich can and should be corrected.  As a Canadian, I too find this banning offensive. After all, whats fair is fair. Bann all countries, drop all flags if you must.

Somehow this doesn't suprise me....we're talking about a country that walks all over our flag after losing to us at hockey.  Sad really.

I did that no luck.  I also contacted Microsoft by phone a while back but they can't help either which is why I went to Major Nelson who could and if he really is the voice of Microsoft to our community should find out why this is and his buddy Stepto who is responsible for these types of things.

I find it funny that our Canadian rep has yet to say anything seeing as she is another person who should be interested as to why this has happened being that she is Canadian and all.

Well I spotted right away why so surprised nobody figured it out sooner.  It is because Canada ends in Da and when you put Go after Da you get a racial slur.  Micrsosoft have to account for spaces because otherwise people would just use spaces to get around stuff.  Putting something like a - between Da and Go might work.  Or Go Canadians Go if that isn't too long.  Don't expect them to change it since they would have to allow that word.  Google it if you want to know more about the word.
