Default 717 is a dirty word according to MS

Every week when I waste money on RB DLC I update my motto.

Well right now it reads.. 728 RB DLC

A week ago I changed my motto to 716 RB DLC because MS would not allow me to use 717 RB DLC claiming there was a dirty phrase or sentence there.

What the F&^T*&TD(*&

So why is 717 a dirty word?

Don't believe me try changing your motto, or adding 717

Hi,

I think 717 may be pointing/referencing to some secure location of the MS, so they have just blocked and said dirty. So that no one can access the data stored at 717.

There a really stupid thing out there called leet speak, where people will replace letters with numbers. For instance, using it for the word leet would be 1334.

MS has wisened up to it and blocks a lot of things. 717 = tit.

EDIT: Dammit... didn't notice the dates.
