Be aware of the Spaces Code of Conduct

Hi everybody,

I have learned first hand that Spaces has a zero tolerance policy on at least some violations of the Code of Conduct: ( ) We all agreed to this Code when we got our space.

 I accidentally came across a space that was blatantly in violation of the Code of Conduct. It was listed in the "Updated Spaces" module and the title was very blatantly obvious. It was advertising hard core pornography and phone sex and had a lot of porn photographs. I clicked on the Report Abuse button and reported it. Later that day, I got an email from Microsoft Customer Support thanking me for letting them know about it, and saying that the space had been deleted. It actually was gone!

Before you jump down my throat for being a prude, please realize I am risking what you think of me to pass along this information. I’m not a vigilante who is going to go around looking for violations and turn in people. That’s not what this is about.

All I’m saying is that if you put up content that is against the rules your space could get deleted without warning. They say this in the Code, and now I know that they are dead serious when they say it:

"Termination and Cancellation

Microsoft reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to review and remove user-created services and content at will and without notice, and delete postings or ban participants that are deemed objectionable."
