I'll make this short and sweet: why is somebody named "Trans Something or Other" allowed to keep their name, and somebody named "Vagene Machine" not?

I'm all for consenting adults not being harassed for how they related to other consenting adults, but I have a major problem when one particular group of consenting adults is favored over another for, what appear to me, political reasons.

This requires a straight-forward answer.

i completely agree!! i had that name for over 3 years and one person comes along and complains and then Boom Cancelled... this is a game !!! Vagene for one is not even a word and 2 i see worse names in league of legends which consists of a lot of kids.. also there is a comp team with R****L in its name ...honestly who the hell cares?? why has this game turned into such tattle tailors and whiners??? who gets OFFENDED by things like VageneMachine or someone saying evening ladies... and the fact that there is someone else on the other end looking at these ridiculous complaints and being all "yup that's a valid one" in stead of just telling these people to grow up and go play candy crush AND STOP BEING A BUNCH OF BABIES..

Adding insult to injury by also banning her protest name was not the adult way to deal with this situation, PGI.

One of the names is a might be a bit rude, if you squint at it hard enough. The other seems deliberately controversial, out of context and clearly pushing an agenda. So the rational explanation is that PGI has an ironic sense of humor.

Since I'm the one being vague posted about here. I'd imagine it was ruled as "obscene" as silly as that is. It's, body part machine, spelled incorrectly.

My name isn't designed to invite any sort of conflict, I'm just a transwoman who meows a lot.

That being said, the name in question is about the most innofensive thing I've seen and I had 0 interaction with it.

when I first started playing MWO I was shocked at all the bazaar player names
I thought players would pick cool military names

I guess its because I am a boomer and grew up with names like GI Joe, Speed Racer, Maj Matt Mason
just cool stuff

it also never enter our minds that drawing penises was cool or even funny

of course you name your self trans catgirl your an idiot
of course you want everyone to bow down and worship your genius
of course you try to game the system by claiming free something or other
of course you cry mom the boomer Dave called me an idiot he hates me


PGI should ban all team names

and they should make the team names at random

for player names I would only allow military related names no personalized names
in fact I would not allow any names I would only allow call signs
when I crewed A10s I remember Lima (as in Lima flight) as one I thought was cool

this has been a PSA from one of the few actual boomers
