I was never aware of any extreme emblem that I have created when so many others have images or privates and foul language when my emblem of an iron eagle with an upside-down cross got me removed from this feature. I find this offensive to subjectify me and not care about all of the nudity others show.

Okay so my name on ps3 is Oberschutze_ and I got banned from emblem editor without any warning at all, all I had was a swastika which isn't racially offensive. It's a flag. You let every single person literally on bo2 have naked women and stuff that is meant to be racially offensive as emblems but you ban me for a swastika? And none the less without warning id like to have emblem editor back if you could do that because a swastika isn't as bad as people below even ten seeing sexual stuff and you do nothin about it
