please filter out obscene words from usernames

    I wish the political names could go away too, but that is a huge ask from @jim & @david . Where does it end? Filter out Trump & Biden and the perps will just get more subtle with their names. And it's not just US-centric: one player's name, in Chinese characters, is an obscene slur against Chinese people.

  • Yeah, more wokeness, just what's needed. How about you put your big boy or girl pants on and stop trying to control the world around you! What is an unacceptable use of a user name if foul language.


    I don't think that's what "woke" means. But also we typically don't censor political names no matter how stupid they are. Our censorship policy isn't a 100% clear line that's easy to define, though it could mostly be summed up as "profanity" and "slurs".

  • Thanks for that explanation and for all your comments, @david.

    I personally find political names to be unimaginative, but to each his/her/their own.

  • Thank you David. It makes more sense now.


    @zudensternen Can you message @jim or @david about the Chinese obscenity so we can take care of it?
