You were "irritated" because someone named an alt after a porn star??Wow, that really IS being oversensitive...

I have to agree... unless you're on a roleplaying server, I think getting irritated by an alt named after a porn star is a bit oversensitive. It's certainly not on the level of a racist/prejudiced name.

Not to mention rather hypocritical if you actually recognized the name

Yeah, unless it was a RP server, you're being way too sensitive.

"recognized the name"? Bit of a ridiculous thing to say. I know of genocidal world leaders by name but it doesn't make me hypocritical to object to their actions. It's perfectly easy (in this day and age, especially) to know of a porn star without ever seeing a frame of their work. It hardly tags you as being some kind of life-long fan.

While the name itself might not be offensive, it is a real world reference and thusly in violation of the naming policies.I don't report names that offend me, since my sensibilities are only one among many; I report names that are in violation of the established policies, since those are the rules everyone agreed upon during the terms of service.I usually file about 10-20 reports per night.

Thanks, Batman, our city is much safer with you around....

I don't know what newspaper you read, Cabcru, but mine has more articles on genocidal world leaders and their activities than it does about porn stars. Also one typically involves consenting adults, the other doesn't, though I won't say which is which.And though at first i object to your comparison regarding name recognition (on the grounds that that is a somewhat ridiculous claim to make), given the number of people killed over a fair space of time by any character, genocide isn't even that far off. I know my character has slaughtered entire villages for quests. I have even waited for the next "generation" to appear, and killed them too.
