    If that's your brothers, why don't you make your own? You can make as many as you want for free.

    If they're standard complaints, he won't get to change his name, the account will be suspended indefinitely. They'd have to be complaints specifically about the name, but his name is not against Microsoft's policy so they're NEVER going to suspend or change an account because it's named Throwdown. The complaints only raise a red flag for Microsoft to investigate if a problem exists. If they see a few complaints made about your account's name, they'll simply look at it, say "Nope... nothing wrong with that" and move on. It takes more than just a few complaints for Microsoft to take action, else it would be an unfair and unbalanced system. Either pay to change the name, or make your own account.

    You can't get as many as you want for free, you only get 3 free 1 month trials when you create a silver account.

    I didn't say he could make as many free trial gold account as he wants. He can still make a free Silver account (assuming they've already used up 3 free trials) and subscribe to gold at any point.

    there are a couple of reasons why im doing this.
    1. ive already made a bunch of friends on this account so make a new account would be inconvenient. plus all of my achievments.
    2. this account is subscribed for 12 months(until november) and that would be a waste of money.

    ive already asked most of my friends to file a complaint about my name. and apparently it doesnt matter what your name is, if you get enough complaints you will be forced to change your name.
    so please if anyone can do this for me it would help alot, and save me 10 bucks.
