Microsoft bans swearing on Skype, in email, Bing and Office 365 docs

Microsoft has advised users of upcoming changes to its services' terms-of-use agreement that will make it a potentially account-closing offence to use offensive language on Skype or in a Word document.

The tweaked agreement, which comes into effect on May 1, 2018, includes the following new code-of-conduct item:
Don’t publicly display or use the Services to share inappropriate content or material (involving, for example, nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity).
And if you disobey?
If you violate these Terms, we may stop providing Services to you or we may close your Microsoft account.
