OT: Xbox live ban

So have just found out that I’ve been given a 7 day ban on xbox live for ‘communications’.

So turns out last week I played a fella who I beat. Then proceeded to get the usual abuse, so I messaged back basically telling him to give his head a wobble and that there was no need for abuse. He then added me in to a party to which 6-7 other lads continued to give abuse over the mic and message me, which was all rather entertaining for 5 minutes till I got bored of it and told them to bore off. All of them reported me, because the lad that lost told them to (heard him him tell them over mic).

Is it possible that that would have been enough for the ban?

    Why would you join a party and just listen to abuse without retorting?

    Happens all the time. Never join a party you don't know, happened to me before so I just ignore all invites now.

    Where's the fun in that lol. Just keep focusing on banter, as long as you don't insult or swear XBOX won't ban you.

    Did you not report them?? When I get a rage message, my objective is clear. I'll bait the sender to insult me even more without violating any rules and then I report him! Always satisfaction when Sony gives me that notification that the pathetic loser that sent me a rage message has been dealt with. Sometimes it doesn't work, no worries move on.

    That's a great advice right there!

    Reported them. But numerous reports from all the ones in the party probably weighed more than me reporting them singularly

    You probably deserved it just for using the phrase ‘give your head a wobble’.

    I don't know, I think 'Give your head a wobble.' is going to be my next catch phrase. Love it.

    If 5 or more people report you xbox bans you. It's a terrible system and happened to me as well.
