Recently, a fellow Avatar with the initials FF seems to have had his name forcibly changed to something with "apple" in it. Understandably, there is not much detail of the circumstances. While I do understand the desire to have a safe place to play here, and have no desire to exclude anyone, I would like to voice my concern or how "offensive" can be interpreted. We have an awesome community here and want nothing to hurt that. However, I also would like to caution that judging the offensiveness of something can be a difficult thing to balance. I have an alt that has my legal last name. A name that can be seen as offensive to at least a few people. It's not a joke name or a name generally seen as humorous. Most people do not see it as offensive. Some do. Which is correct? Will I get a force rename when it is eventually reported? Am I safe from a forced rename because it is my legal last name? Will I be requested to prove it is my legal name? No matter the answer to the above questions, ask yourself one question. Why? I ask these quests not only to point out the interpretation and possible loophole issues. But, I also genuinely want to know if I will be able to use my legal name if I so choose and if so, why it makes sense that I get a loophole and others who choose names that are less directly offensive than my legal name don't. Thank you P.S. Mods, If you must take actions on this post, it would be much appreciate if you'd just lock this post instead of outright deleting it.
