When I signed up for Xbox Live years ago, I chose “Hello Kitty” as my gamertag. I thought it would be fun to slaughter people at games like Halo or Gears of War and hear them scream out, “#!$@ I got killed by Hello Kitty again!”
What I did not expect were the types of people that would try to add me as a friend on Xbox Live based on my gamertag.
Here was a recent one.
Gamertag: 0oH3LLO KiTTYo0

Voice message 1: “Hey I just want to be friends, I love Hello Kitty too. You can add me please so we could play games together. ‘K? Byyeeeeeee!”
Voice message 2 (sent 1 minute after message 1): “I JUST WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND… PLLLLLEEEEEEEAAAAAASEEEEEEEEE! ‘K BYE!”
