Hey, guys.  I'll get a screen shot of the e-mail up when I get home after work (and the gym) tonight.  :)

It's not about questioning his honesty.
It's about being able to pull out a somewhat believable trump card for all the kbam adapter haters out there, who scream this is "cheating" or that MS will ban us for using the XIM. 
Copy/pasting the quote as proof, or saying "Well there was this guy on the XIM forums who said he talked to someone at MS who said XIM wasn't against the ToS..."   
Yea, that'll float far.  At least a screengrab of the email would be more convincing. 

Thanks for doing that, Razerguy.  Appreciated.

Meh, one Microsoft Support Employee's opinions does not an official policy make. 

Actually it does, unless otherwise stated as personal opinion! or a disclaimer is included with mail.

Guys, and girls Oo
If microsoft wants to change their terms of service they can at any time. Sending them emails and flaunting on boards/on live that we have a screen of some random MS support rep saying xim3 is legit, is only increasing the chance of them changing the tos. When xboxlive receives an influx of xims once Obs goes live and can manufacture as fast as demand, thats when were most vulnerable to a change in tos. Of course its legal at this moment; they have no idea how overpowered the xim3 is and there is only a few playing online. The complaints have not come in yet. . .  Its best to just leave it alone.

Chances are great they will accept xim3 as legit, but if they receive enough complaints they will change tos - period.

No offense, but this thread is rather pointless. I mean Microsoft can always change their Terms of Service and change what is and isn't in violation of them. The XIM (any version) is obviously not currently in violation of their ToS or we would know it by now. That doesn't mean that MS can't one day decide that XIM is cheating and take actions to prevent their use on the console. Don't get me wrong, I don't think this will happen, but be realistic at least, people.

Exactly. Just because one random, clueless outsourced MS online chat representative said it was within Microsoft's TOS doesn't mean squat.

I hope a mod burns this thread to ashes so as it can never be resurrected

Here you have it.

As many have said, nothing is carved in stone. This, however, is just a positive note for everyone concerned with the XBox Live ToS presently.

Thanks dude, appreciated.


And all you posters saying "MS can change their ToS at any time..."
How many times HAS Microsoft changed the ToS?
I can't recall any except for when they introduced Kinect.
Even with a couple hundred complaints, you think they're gonna change their rules because a couple thousand (out of tens of millions) XBL subscribers are using a kbam?
Kbam has been on XBL since the SmartJoy Frag in 2004.
