Microsoft Bans Swearing, “Inappropriate Content” on Skype

A blogger named Jon Corbett recently wrote that Microsoft had already implemented some changes to Skype’s “Code of Conduct” to ban inappropriate content such as offensive language.

Microsoft’s Skype and other services prohibit the sharing of content that include “nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity”. However, a number of users pointed out that while this is makes sense for public platforms like Twitter, the policy change raise privacy and censorship questions since Microsoft would effectively be policing sharing a private conversation between two consenting adults.

Microsoft has not yet responded to questions on how it will be implementing the new policy.
