Microsoft has started a new wave of 360 bans and this has angered many pirates. Banned users are actually making threatening calls to the director of Xbox Live's policy enforcement.

Stephen Toulouse logged into an IRC channel from where the problem seemed to start and pleaded that the threatening calls to him and his family should stop.

This is the actual IRC chat transcript.

This appears to be legitimate since Stephen Toulouse's Twitter contains the word 'cheesecake' as he was asked to post this on his page as proof it really is him.

  • [01:03] <+namespace> stepto01
  • [01:03] <+namespace> why
  • [01:03] <+namespace> would you come in here
  • [01:03] <+namespace> on your home ip
  • [01:03] <+namespace> are you a fucking moron
  • [01:03] <+Stepto01> thanks dig91, its that type of info that results in my getting death threats
  • [01:04] <@DiGi91_> i had to confirm it
  • [01:04] <+namespace> :/
  • [01:04] <+Stepto01> yeah
  • [01:04] <@WhatDude> Stepto01: you know its a bunch of like 13 year old kids threating you
  • [01:04] <@DiGi91_> too many people thinking ur a fake
  • [01:04] <+Stepto01> isnt it?
  • [01:04] <+namespace> Stepto01, what exactly is your position at microsoft
  • [01:04] <+Stepto01> Director of policy and enforcement for Xbox LIVE
  • [01:05] <@WhatDude> Stepto01: you and fourzerotwo are popular guys
  • [01:05] <@DiGi91_> just wondering why you would come here?
  • [01:05] <@WhatDude> Stepto01: how did you know to come in this irc chan?
  • [01:05] <+Stepto01> digi91: mainly because tonight thanks to posts here peopl have called me and threatened me, my wife, and my dogs.
  • [01:06] <+Stepto01> so I thought a little engagement might be warrented
  • [01:06] <+Stepto01> to be clear, once again, I am not going to answer ban questions.
  • [01:07] <+Stepto01> so, having shown I have the sack to come in here, I can assume we all are people and not going to take the internet route that what happens on the internet has no consequences and I'm not going to get anymore calls?
  • [01:08] <+Q[--_--]D> youll still get calls steve
  • [01:08] <+Q[--_--]D> no doubt
  • [01:08] <@loop32> Yea, it won't stop.
  • [01:08] <@WhatDude> Stepto01: I would hopt the calls stop
  • [01:08] <+Q[--_--]D> but i dont think anyone would have the balls to do anything to you
  • [01:08] <+Stepto01> fair enough. But not from you guys right?
  • [01:08] <@loop32> not me.
  • [01:08] <@WhatDude> but with your info posted on 4chan, who knows when they'll stop
  • [01:08] * Locke-mob (~fake@cpe-72-177-176-42.satx.res.rr.com) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
  • [01:08] <+Stepto01> 4chan removed it
  • [01:08] <+Stepto01> at request
  • [01:08] <+namespace> 4chan fails
  • [01:08] <@WhatDude> indeed
  • [01:09] <+Stepto01> so.
  • [01:09] <+Stepto01> consider this a simple engagement to say: dont disobey the TOU and hey! you will never know I exist right?
  • [01:10] <+Stepto01> love the fact that since I came in here the phone calls stopped cold
  • [01:10] <+KarateBob> are there any sure-fire ways to get a console banned? playing backups seems to only be ~90% effective
  • [01:10] <+Stepto01> thats a good sign
  • [01:12] <+Stepto01> Thanks in advance for the stopping of the calls. even if it was just realizing that kind of thing has consequences. Leaving now. peace out.
  • [01:13] <+namespace> Do you guys ban manually or do you have a program flagging?
  • [01:13] <+Stepto01> namespace: the answer is [SJAKJKJSDFKJ349872394876sad796 Carrier Drop]
  • [01:13] * +Stepto01 (Mibbit@207.115.73.234) has left #360banned
