    When original Xbox launched, soon after that the now famous Xbox Live service started, and soon after that it was discovered with millions of gamers online chatting together, there was a need for some 'policing' of system, and that task ended up falling in the hands of Stephen 'Stepto' Toulouse, and he soon got the nickname of Xbox Ban Hammer, for enforcing Microsoft's polices on issuing 'account bans' and in the worse cases 'console bans', but outside of 'nickname' he was pioneer in the field of 'online harassment' long before things like GamerGate came to light, and in person he was very kind man and will be missed greatly by family, friends, and gaming industry colleagues.
    On behalf of all the staff and mods here and thousands of loyal MaxConsole members, we wish his family well and may he R.I.P. :(
