No, the point wasn't missed.If you think their names violate the naming rules, and they don't, and you report them anyway, if the GM doesn't actually check and instead just gives them a rename, that's a pain in the ass for them.The two examples I used above could on the surface look like violations of the naming rules, especially "Twobears", but if you actually ask the player, you will find out the name is an RP name. GM's sometimes aren't known to check on names. Some people have been renamed simply because they used a foreign name, and someone said it was an insult in that language, which it wasn't, and the GM force changed a name anyway.If someone has a name obviously against the rules, is grossly breaking the rules, with something like Taurenhunter, or Igankyou, I have no problem with you reporting them. What I am saying is, be more careful on who you report if their name could possibly still be RP, even if it's not obvious. They may annoy you, but getting to a node before you is hardly reason enuf for their to lose their name, or make them go thru hours of tickets with GM's to get their name back.Some RP players have a reputation of name reporting for every thing that pisses them off, don't be like that.
