As harsh as it may be, something like that should apply to Steam and several other matchmaking systems (Battlelog, Autolog, etc..) and forums as well. There are surely a lot of female gamers around but due to the constant jerks on the web they appear a minority because they don't dare ever mentioning or revealing it.

So, kudos to 343 Industries, and in this case MS

It's the internet. If you can be offended or scared off by random misogynistic rants from anonymous idiots you need to grow a thicker skin. Besides, I doubt this will be in full force for very long. I've heard this type of "we're declaring a zero tolerance" policy speak from Microsoft about Live before. Shortly after they realize that it's half their customers being anonymous asshats just because they can, they back off. And frankly it just wouldn't be Halo MP if someone wasn't calling me a c*nt every thirty seconds.
