Your Gamertag violated the Code of Conduct so it was forcibly changed to something which does not.

No you should not. That was how the old system worked. Now when your gamertag is deemed inappropriate the XBLPET changes it for you and you have to pay for a new one.

So now I am forced to pay ten dollars to change my gamertag to something i like instead of having an Xbox generated, lame one? This has happened to me before and I was granted a free gamertag change.

first do not bump threads from last year. second the old policy was you could not sign into your account unless you changed the tag.  too many people abused this by creating tags just as bad so they decided to give out random names, so yes you will have to pay to change it or live with the one you got.
