So if the gamertag had another curse or slur word in it, it can't be banned since some people are this curse word or slur?
Seriously, grow up guys. A name like that is just inviting certain comments on XBL and I applaud M$ for actually listening to the community and removing it. I know for sure that if somebody with that name joined a CS:S server, it would bring some interesting conversation; and while I'm not an XBL member, I'm sure it happens there as well.
Frankly, I'd be against banning anyone for any name.
However, this one irks me because having the work "gay" in one's name is not against the XBL terms. If you ban every word that can be corrupted into an insult, you may as well throw out all verbal and written forms of communication.
I don't think people being offended is a valid reason to force someone to change their name. No matter what it is it's going to offend someone.
This is another fine example of tyranny of the overly-vocal-minority-pretending-they-are-the-majority.
