The Back button on the controller is mapped to the A-Hole function. Use the right stick to select the verbally offensive player (a.k.a, the A-Hole) to mute him. Based on the comments of Bungie's Frank O'Connor (Content Manager) to Eurogamer, they're rather happy with the feature.
Any muted player you have selected in your Xbox Live account overrides Halo 3's new system, but that should actually enhance the choice of maroons you're editing out of your gameplay. Best of all, it means fewer wasted or frustrating gameplay sessions.
Short of an Xbox Live feature that physically washes the mouths of microphone abusers, or at the least terminates their Gamertags with extreme prejudice, the A-Hole feature may be the best weapon against noise pollution in Live. At the very least, multiplayer will be even sweeter music to the ears.
