The battle is all about one three letter word,and pride, Fort Gay pride.

Intense. That's how Josh Moore gets when he logs on to his on line X-Box live account -- paid for in advance -- and does battle with other X-Box gamer’s world wide.

But Josh has an intense fight going on with the X-Box and Microsoft folks themselves, his account was suspended for inappropriate content in his general profile. The content in question -- Josh's home town -- Fort Gay, W.Va.

“I'm frustrated that this would be an issue. I'm proud of where I live and this makes no sense,” said Moore.

Moore tells WSAZ.com after questioning the decision, X-Box lifted a suspension they said was fueled by complaints from other gamers. Moore was reinstated, providing he make no profile references to Fort Gay.

MS did reverse themselves after being contacted by the TV station. Mr. Moore does strike me as a bit of a provocateur*, though. Definitely a man after my own heart.

Weird, they didn't reverse their decision for me when I told them that I really did live in Los ********er ***** **** ****es ****, Wyoming.

I just realized I don't know if this forum has a filter. I should read the rules sometime.

Providing he doesn't tell anyone his hometown. How quaint.

That's awesome. I don't see why it was a big deal though. MS allows tons of out there names.

I keep hoping that someone makes a 360 game with MiG-15s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-15) in it.

Or a game set in England where someone asks for a smoke.
