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)?
