I can't particularly comment too much, as I play on an RP server so I'd naturally expect the vast majority of characters to have a policy-adhering name. But what winds me up, probably above all else, is the utter lack of imagination some people seem to possess. Or not possess. Whatever works,Frostytraps, the hunter. Stealthystab the rogue. Dkmage the... well I think he's a paladin actually but it's STILL REALLY FRIGGIN STUPID.I can forgive those who can RP (*coughretconcough*) their name as a nickname using flagrsp... Juliu "Fleetfoot" Magnoro, the stealthy human rogue, for example.It's a completely irrational hatred, and some guildies call me out on it now and then when I launch into a tirade against Manlock the Human warlock, or Shamano, Beasttamer, Frostpewpew, Blindtwink, etc. GAH. RAAAAAAAAAGE.I want to kick these people in the nuts.

I think you're missing the point.

Seems I distracted myself from my own point, heh. Yes, if I was a Guild Master then I would refuse to accept any character into the guild with a policy-breaking or offensive name.Our guild has a 3-vouches-and-in poliy with new recruitment, and I've refused to give people the nod based purely on them having a stupid name.

I am right there with you. Nothing as annoying as seeing yet another variation of a LOTR character name. People have no creativity at all.Recently my realm has been plagued with people renaming characters to variations on "Dora" after they get their Explorer title.It's not clever, people, it's just stupid. And the fact that so many are doing it shows just how not-clever it is.

maybe I need to switch to an RP server so people stop thinking I'm an a-hole about stupid names. I report any and all I can that are against the policy but blizzard doesn't care unless it's offensive.They don't care about 3 word phrases (which are in the policy) or stuff like MaxximoArthas, or Arthus, or Arthaas, etc.
