My gamertag may be breaking rules - what to do?

It has been pointed out to me that my gamertag may cause problems and sure enough, after posting on the official forza forums yesterday, I received a message that my gamertag was considered offensive and broke the xbox rules and as such I am now banned from those forums and have been reported to some enforcement thing or other.

I should make clear that the "fannymites" tag is an old pet name given to me by an ex a long time ago and is in no way intended to be offensive.  I am just so used to it that I simply do not notice the words and what they mean.

So yes, I do now realise that it could be offensive to some so the question is, what can I do about it?

Being a bit of a skinflint I don't like the idea of using precious points to change the tag.  I would be changing it to suit others really rather than changing it on a whim so is there any way around that?

If I just sit it out and wait, how long is it likely to take for MS' enforcement people to lock it and force me to change it (for which, if I understand correctly, there is no charge)?

What is FNC?

 

<EDIT>

Nevermid, I google'd it :)

I'll maybe try contacting them directly and see what they have to say.

If a xbl forum has banned you for your GT you will prob have a fnc - thus getting you unbanned from them - I personal think its a funny GT - but Fanny could be construed as many things..
