[Update (Oct. 27, 2017): Stephen Toulouse, who served as Director of Xbox Live Policy and Enforcement from 2007 through 2012, passed away last night at the age of 45, as reported by a tweet from his brother.
A cause of death isn’t being reported at this time, but Toulouse’s recent blogging and social media activity gave no indication of illness or health struggles. In 2015, Toulouse fell into a coma after contracting an infection that doctors at one point did not expect him to survive.
In memory of Toulouse, we’re resurfacing this interview, originally published July 12, 2012, which recapped his long career enforcing Microsoft’s rules for online gaming conduct.]
