Psh... subjectivity. We have a whole guild on our server with "Sister" as part of their names, and even though Sister is a title, with religious overtones no less, Blizzard has done nothing about it. I've also personally reported several characters on my server that have named themselves after the gods in EverQuest, and nothing has ever been done about it.RP subjectivity never seems to kick in, and only the names that clearly violate rules on offensive behavior ever get changed. If they're going to not enforce a rule, they should remove the rule.

Actually I do have a troll named Bluetoof (hard to talk with those giant things in your mouth!), he's just not an an RP server. It's an example of a context-appropriate name.

@ Ktok: The Guild to which you are referring was actually discussed at some length elsewhere on WOW Insider. The additional media coverage is probably a big part of why they haven't been reported - which is ironic, given the number of people who were irate over their naming violations (not to mention the number of eyewitness accounts claiming their members act like gargantuan assholes).

@Badger: Yeah, I've had some... dealings with them. I had the bad luck to roll a new alt the same day the Sisters started showing up, long before their leader even tried to make them behave. It was ugly, and my ignore list runneth over.Lately, there seems to be far fewer of them around, but I still see then now and then waiting for someone else to clear to a quest mob, then taking it for themselves. Granted, that's not against the rules, but it's still poor form and really annoying.
