    Will Negrow get banned?

    I know that you are all thinking about it... well not all of you, but at least some of you. (Sorry mods, just curious, don't be mad! <3)

    If you name your worgen "Negrow" (or some variation with alt code letters) do you think that you will get hit with the ban stick and/or have to change your name?

    Eh its a tough one.
    My original name was Blackballs but someone reported it and i had to change it but no bans occurred.
    More than likely you will just have to rename it.

    I have a feeling they won't let you create a char that has Negro in it's name.

    Why does it matter? Who on earth would want to nick something so retarded, juvenile and redundant anyway?

    Well technically it's just Worgen spelled backwards, which is something that THEY made up. I know that it's a bit stupid and it has the double meaning, but I know that probably other people have had the idea and I thought that it would be interesting to bring it up.

    you expect too much of the WoW community, as disappointing as it is, it will happen.

    Why don't you just choose a different name out of the 3 kazillion names out there instead of being a racist bastard?

    Alright, but you have to admit that there is NO possible way that the people at Blizz didn't realize what it looked like spelled backwards. I mean, come on.

    They will probably force you to change name since it could offend some people.

    I didn't say that I was going to, I was just bringing it up as something interesting or dumb to talk about. And why does it even have to be racist? And how do you know that I'm not black?

    Black or not, it's still a racist word. And don't give me any shite replies trying to argue that it's not.

    How is that relevant to anything? You should read the rules of WoW, and nicking your race's name backwards isn't clever in my book, especially not if it's racist and/or offensive in some way. This thread is redundant.

    Words are what people make of them. Just like "cuss words", people made them that way. God never said "Thou shalt not say F***, S***, or C***".

    It's still racist because we made it racist, 99.9% of the world will call it a racist word, so to blizzard it will be racist. And it's the meaning of the word that makes it bad

    There is an obvious difference between a swear word and a racist term.

    I don't know why you are on my ass so hard, I just thought that it was an interesting and stupid topic, like I said. I really don't have an opinion in the matter. I just took my meds and it makes me a "Chatty Cathy", so sue me!
