I hear what you are saying. The kids these days and young adults have no respect and when they are in a party they talk this and that thinking that in front of their friends that makes them cool. Hell I was in a lobby the other day this kid talking stuff on SnD and he was on the other team and was 0-3 and I was 5-3 and so I told him to stop talking **** if he dont even have a kill, and his teammates actually stuck up for him. A complete travesty. Anyhow I wouldnt mind playing if you play HC objectives. that is all I play. G.T. OpenRangeOnUAll

Im older, and I completely understand what you are talking about. I usually have to start a party so I can hear no one in the lobby just to have a good time. But to the OP I have experienced the hate, and racist comments if you consider calling me a honkey racist, which I could care less. But on the day it happened I was already in a pissed off mood for some reason so I contacted support here. They can not do anything because of messages or in game chat and told me to contact xbox. So dont do this unless it gets out of hand because they dont take lightly to these kind of conversations, and harrassments due to this system (not game) being a family system. Well got a hold of them via there website, filled out there page asking for my info, phone, gamertag, ect. This was late I think 10 or so at night, and low and behold not 5 minutes later my phone rang with a representive on the line. Asked the situation, what was said, the messages that were sent, and then goes into his spill about its not acceptable. Well me being me I was kind of like yea, ok, so nothing will be done im guessing since you didnt ask me to provide the message in my inbox. Well talking to him for about 30 minutes lead me to find out that xbox has access to all inplay conversations past and present, and can look at all your sent and recieved messages at any given time. Well I kept one of the messages just so I would have access to look at the guys profile and see if anything was done about it. Well a week and a half later from the time this happened I pulled him up to look, and at that time it said he hadnt been online since the day I reported it. It could have all been a conciedence, or he may have just not been on, I dont know. I just know I talked to them, gave them the info, then check a bit later and he had not been on. If they did take care of it good for them, if it just happened it was a time he wasnt on I still felt good because im still in the thinking they took care of it. But there you go, a story and a possible way to take care of these kind of situations if you choose to. It usually doesnt bother me, he just happened to catch me on an off day.

I agree, OP. Its a really sad state of affairs in the CoD community these days. A lot of hate. A lot of anger. And definitely a lot of aggression.
Part of it is the way the game has been, its broken to pieces and a lot of people are just plain frustrated. I know I have been.
But I've also seen racism, bullying, and people just being obnoxious for no reason. Some people seem to think that being competitive means bullying, trash-talking, or bragging. Classy players know its about having fun, are polite to the other team, say "good game", and just treat others with the same respect they would want for themselves.
I wish I had an answer for you. It seems society in general is embracing the "a-hole" personality lately. Me? Whenever I can I prefer to party up with some friends and just enjoy hanging out with them, rather than dealing with the unwashed masses.

just report em and be done with em, i dont say be mean and all that crap, but we could all do without most of these idiots. i dont camp, at least not anymore because i just got tired of getting my ass kicked so i had to actually do something i never thought i would, which is run like a headless chicken all around the freaking map with a stoopid shotgun. at least now im on positive numbers LOL and not that i really care but at some point i actually looked at them and went "wooooow 3000 is kind of bad" lol now im on 3000 but on the positive. still and sorry for the large story, my point is no matter what you do camp, run or whatever..losers will always have to vent and some choose that way...if they are dumb enough to text the insult then they do deserve to get banned for a week and cool off.

That is pretty much the majority of people playing CoD, little 12 year old trash talkers, and people that wouldn't have the balls to say something in public but feel right at home sitting behind a TV talking crap.

Like I stated earlier im older so in turn this subject bugs the hell out of me. First off this is a rated M game, so parents need to grow some balls and learn to tell there kids no. Second, all this crap now day, oh son/daughter you messed up, lets talk about it....... Really? Just talk? Back in the good days a kid screwed up, you got your ass whooped, and then you lost whatever toy you liked most. Come on now, Oh I cant touch my own kid because he will call the police and say I beat him. People my age got whooped, my parents got whooped, its been going on for ages and has worked so far. All these little kids that play this game, and shouldnt be playing this game need to learn how to act in the real world. Talking crap over the game does not make you special, it makes you look like an idiot.
In turn all I can say to this subject I miss the good old days.

Everyone thinks that children are getting worse but I look back and I honestly dont think its true.
One thing is you notice it more as you get older and get mature.
Second thing is with faster communication , cel phones, internet, etc you just hear about it more and a lot quicker. Back during the atari 2600 you got one or two ahole gamers to deal with so you kicked them out of the house and kept playing.
You look thru history mankind has always been the way it is and it will keep on going.
My grand dad used to say things were a lot better in the old days. I actually opened his eyes and said "You mean the time during Hitler or right before that with the great depression."
The old days werent any better. Its just you remember the older times better because you memory slowly turns to swiss cheese and fills in the spaces with what you make up in your mind to patch those holes.

Really Frack, I dont know about you,but the way kids talk these days, you can say nothing has changed you just hear about it more, but if you believe that then I have a lot of property around this world that I will sell you. Back in the day of Atari, when you played with friends you talked crap face to face, and I didnt go walking around town or when I was playing sports like baseball and basketball against people I didnt know and just start talking crap. Yeah, you had your bad seeds, just like any other generation, but the generation today is filled with a lot more bad seeds than there has ever been. You pratically cant go into a lobby without someone saying the N-Word. I dont know about you, but I grew up in a southern town of about 15,000 people and I cant remember a time that everyone walked around using the N-Word. And I think a lot of it has to do with kids listening to rap, and the black community throw it around talking to each other, but still doesnt make it right.
The old days are always better because as you get older everything changes, and there are changes for the better like xbox opposed to Atari, but the electronic age and internet has changed totally how people communicate with each other. You remember the old days being better, cause as I have you see how the world is changing, and going in a not so good direction, and you remember when people were actually civil to each other, and you knew who your neighbors were.
