While Toulouse acknowledged there is a far deeper history behind the swastika outside of the 1940's, he explains that he cannot afford to give benefit of the doubt to anyone using it as a personal in-game logo, especially if they're using the swastika as "revised" by the National Socialist party. The debate arises when Toulouse is faced with what some detractors describe as double standards in Xbox LIVE's policy enforcement. Toulouse addresses these in a recent blog posting:
"It's not political correctness, it's fundamental respect. If you think the swastika symbol should be re-evaluated by societies all over the Earth, I think that's great. Your Xbox LIVE profile or in game logo, which doesn't have the context to explain your goal, is not the right place to do that. And by the way, that doesn't just go for the Swastika, it applies to many other symbols as well that my team does indeed take action on when we see it.
"TL;DR: If you see offensive symbols in Call of Duty, Black Ops, report them using the in game option and they will be taken care of. If you want to argue that swastikas are actually AWESOME, go to another forum. On Xbox LIVE they are not allowed. :> "
