      Is Xbox Kinect Listening to Your Skype Calls?

      Users of the new Xbox One are complaining that Kinect is monitoring their Skype conversations for swearing and then punishing them with account bans. Microsoft has admitted it is punishing gamers for bad language but denied that it is snooping on private Skype chats.

      Haven't followed the link you've posted, Shabs, I'm just grabbing a quick break at work.
      As I understand it though, people are being banned (or suspended) for swearing excessively on videos that they've uploaded because they're hosted on a service accessible to all ages. I very much doubt they'd do anything about swearing on Skype where you choose who to communicate with. Could be wrong but I'd be very surprised.
