Xbox Live Enforcement: ‘Of course you can’t use a swastika as your logo.’

In his role as head of Xbox Live enforcement, Stephen Toulouse gets to answer all kinds of strange questions.

Recently one of those questions was apparently “Can I use a Swastika as my logo in Call of Duty: Black Ops?” When Toulouse responded with the obvious answer (“No, of course you can’t, we’ll ban you.”) he was met with some pushback by people he refers to as “contrarians” and “internet pundits” who decided to educate him on the long and storied history of the swastika as a symbol of good fortune and how just because the Nazis used it, it doesn’t make the symbol itself a bad thing.
