I just wish, when a name is reported, there was a greivence process. So you can state why your name is acceptable. Case in point, a few weeks ago during a saturday night kara run a bunch of my guildies were reported and kicked, mid run. had to rename and re-login.I cant remember all the toons that were forced to change, but one was DrPain...how is that not RP? He is a Doc...he brings Pain...DrPain!

It probably fell "afoul" of the titles rules? I mean, it's asinine, but I'm betting that was it.

I'd probably shrug off that name myself and avoid reporting it, but I can see the reasoning. It's not even a roleplaying issue, to be honest. Viewing the appropriate Blizzard support article (http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=20368) we see:TitlesFantasy titles should be earned through the mechanics of the game, and should not be recreated through character naming. This category includes names which: Consist of any title prefix attached to a character's name be it fantasy-based or not (i.e. Kingmike, Presidentsanchez) If a player is found to have such a name for their character he/she may: Be prompted to select a new name for the character upon next login. "Dr. is, as you noted, a title. By the basic naming conventions applicable to all servers - not just roleplaying servers - this name isn't acceptable. Again, I probably wouldn't have reported it unless his conduct warranted the scrutiny, but it IS not an acceptable name by the standards Blizzard doesn't proactively enforce.

As already posted....it is in violation of the basic naming policy....However, I'd suggest that you guys managed to piss someone off if you had several folks get booted mid-run.Rule #1 when you're breaking the rules: don't piss people off.
