    Quote from MS site in the 10 tips for dealing with griefers

    "suggest playing newer games" Why?? whats wrong with the older games, they are trying to make parents buy their kids all the new games and suggest new games are safer. What S**T

    Parents have better things to spend their money on than on MS.

    I have a XBOX and some games are great but against there way of pushing them onto us.

    So you take our hard earned money for a game full of glitches and bugs and get us to beta test it for you for free and let you know of all the problems. Then you dont have to pay beta testers £20k -£40k a year to test them before you take our money.

    Then when we shown you the bugs and problems you take our money for a sequal which you say is a new game and new game experience when really its the original with the bugs fixed.

    no wonder they are so rich because the consumers are stupid. :/

    Mistakes are often uncorrected. Common typing misspellings (or typos) such as "teh" instead of "the" are left uncorrected and may be adopted to replace the correct spelling.

    What do they mean 'teh' is a typo? its a real word!! :)

    Just thought about using other foriegn languages, then converting them again... using altavistas babel fish, going from english to greek to french to german to english, the following sentence does loose something in the translation...

    Play games that limit griefers. Suggest playing newer games that provide specific resources for dealing with griefers, such as reporting offenders to game administrators, message blocking or muting, and being able to vote griefers off.

    to...

    Play plays, them limit griefers. Suggest the newest plays, which the considered the means for the examination offer griefers like the collecting main of reports of the trespassers at the play governors Mitteilung, whom they prevent or that they sink, and who able are, to select griefers far.

    and the marvin gaye classic... I heard it through the grape vine (chorus)... goes from this...

    I heard it through the grapevine not much longer would you be mine.
    I heard it through the grapevine and I'm just about to lose my mind.
    Honey, honey yeah.

    to this....

    I have it via the much longer vine do not belong you I would be mine. I heard it via the vine, and I am exactly ready to lose my brain. Honey, honey.
