World of Warcraft

I was visiting my girlfriend Betty and her Brother and Nephew were both hooked on this game World of Warcraft. I checked it out, it was actually a pretty sweet RPG. I created my account and named my character Joemomma. Well, Blizzard didn't, for whatever reason, deemed that the name was innappropriate. Check out the letter they sent us.

Realm(s): Shadow Council
Old Character/Pet/Guild Name: Joemomma

Offense: Player violated the naming policy for a non-roleplay name on a role-play server

The name selected for this character, pet or guild is not appropriate as per our naming policy, and upon your next log in you will be able to select a new name. Unfortunately we will be unable to offer name changes for pets. If this notification is in regards to a guild name, the guild has been disbanded and will need to be reformed under a different name.

We realize that you have likely grown attached to this name and certainly know that a name change is a dramatic event. Despite this, we feel that the change is important as the naming policies have been created to try and make for a better world environment for everyone. For further information, please view the World of Warcraft Naming Policy and Terms of Use Agreement: (http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/policy/namingp1.html) and (http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/termsofuse.shtml).

* * * IMPORTANT * * *

For any concerns on this matter, please E-Mail WoWGMFeedback-US@blizzard.commailto:WoWGMFeedback-US@blizzard.com) and we will be happy to assist you.

We understand that while you may not have been aware of the naming policy when creating this character, but repeated attempts to create inappropriate names may result in disciplinary action. We thank you in advance for respecting our position.

Isn't that funny? So I renamed my character to "Deathmug" which was of course more than appropriate. How dumb is that?
