    He was also a warrior. The book says he is both at the same time... Thrall is so confusing.

    I logged into Ravenholdt last night to fuck around with my Shaman for a bit, and I ran across this guy:

    picture1nj2.png

    It's a little hard to read. We have Anguz of <Linch Mob> there.

    Bad cow pun? Check.

    Misspelled guild name? Check.

    Angus is an awfully obvious cow name. Couldn't you go for Belted Galloway or Tarentaise? I mean, there are so many breeds of cows.

    Angus beef is the most delicious. End of story.

    Anguz I can deal with. I didn't even notice that until I posted the image.

    <Linch Mob> however, really needs to go.

    Even after I put him on ignore (he had been spamming Trade and General regarding his need for twinking), he insisted on applying to all major guilds. His app has been deleted since but he pretty much stated that:

    - Was from Alliance.
    - Was 14.
    - Thought he would benefit the guild by getting him twinked to "pwn alliance in teh faec" (actual quote)

    I'll go check other major Horde guilds on Proudmoore and see if they kept his app.

    What amused me about the name is this right here:
    http://armory.worldofwarcraft.com/#character-sheet.xml?r=Kirin+Tor&n=Angelfox

    I assumed the first was an alt or something of the second, but apparently they're totally unrelated.

    Heh. So I popped over to the WoW website to see what was involved in creating an account. I was fast-scrolling through the EULA when some odd words caught my eye. I scorll back up and find this.
    # Rules Related to Usernames and Guild Designations.

    Each user will either select a character name or allow the Program to automatically select a character name at random. Additionally, users may form "guilds" and such guilds will be required to choose a name for the guild. When you choose a character name, create a guild, or otherwise create a label that can be seen by other players using the Program, you must abide by the following guidelines as well as the rules of common decency. If Blizzard finds such a label to be offensive or improper, it may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change the name, remove the label and corresponding chat room, and/or suspend or terminate your use of the Program.

    In particular, you may not use any name:

    1. Belonging to another person with the intent to impersonate that person, including without limitation a "Game Master" or any other employee or agent of Blizzard;
    2. That incorporates vulgar language or which are otherwise offensive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;
    3. Subject to the rights of any other person or entity without written authorization from that person or entity;
    4. That belongs to a popular culture figure, celebrity, or media personality;
    5. That is, contains, or is substantially similar to a trademark or service mark, whether registered or not;
    6. Belonging to any religious figure or deity;
    7. Taken from Blizzard's Warcraft products, including character names from the Warcraft series of novels;
    8. Related to drugs, sex, alcohol, or criminal activity;
    9. Comprised of partial or complete sentence (e.g., "Inyourface", "Welovebeef", etc);
    10. Comprised of gibberish (e.g., "Asdfasdf", "Jjxccm", "Hvlldrm");
    11. Referring to pop culture icons or personas (e.g. " "Britneyspears", "Austinpowers", "Batman")
    12. That utilizes "Leet" or "Dudespeak" (e.g., "Roflcopter", "xxnewbxx", "Roxxoryou")
    13. That incorporates titles. For purposes of this subsection, "titles" shall include without limitation 'rank' titles (e.g. , "CorporalTed," or "GeneralVlad"), monarchistic or fantasy titles (e.g., "KingMike", "LordSanchez"), and religious titles (e.g., "ThePope," or "Reverend Al").

    You may not use a misspelling or an alternative spelling to circumvent the name restrictions listed above, nor can you have a "first" and "last" name that, when combined, violate the above name restrictions.

    Some ganker on my old server got his name changed because it was "offensive" -- his name was "Ikillugit". "git" was considered offensive.

    Guess so, cause it's either an a) deity, or 2) trademarked cartoon guy.

    Interestingly, that "Johnroberts" character I saw a while back, or my "Scalia" char might not get reported since I'd hardly call them "pop culture" or "media personalities".

    More likely the GM would ask you to come up with a different name.
