I'm sure that people of those religions know that around 95% of the population have never seen any of those symbols above and will just interpret it as a nazi symbol. If so then the people of those religions should have enough common sense to just use a different emblem. I've never ever seen any of the symbols in the picture above, not even the celtic one and I'm Irish.
Also, the penalty for emblems isn't as bad as getting banned. Taken from the COD forums

Users who create emblems that are sexually gratuitous or racially offensive.
• Minor offense: 2-week ban from using the emblem editor, emblem reset to default, emblem purchases wiped
• Major offense: Permanent ban from using the emblem editor
I think the 360 version is handled a little differently, so here is Microsoft’s Director of Xbox Live Policy and Enforcement's view.http://www.stepto.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=635
If anybody who still uses the swastika as their emblem in a religious context gets banned, Kakeh, let me know.
I understand the argument of the ban, but it is still not entirely fair. Though I guess you can never be equally fair in this world. Would it be fair for them to ban Islamic symbols as 80% of America is gonna view that as a terrorist symbol even though it is not? No, it wouldn't. I blame people for being just entirely ignorant and stupid. I blame all of those little pricks online that just HAVE to act like that while the few that do not use it in the bad way re to sufferer in one way or another for it. I blame education for not properly teacher the difference between Nazi and religion for the fact that in the general populace, no one knows. I just hate when there is a group of nice people who can't express their religion because some evil jerks from the past used the same/similar symbol in an act of evil and thus they will now be prosecuted because of it.
this is how the world is though, no matter how stupid it is
