Hi there. I have good news and bad news. We’ll uncensor the character names. Keep in mind that sometimes, a person reports a name because the chat used by the character makes it clear they’ve chosen the name as a means to offend. I don’t think that’s the case here, though, so we’re good on those names.

However, we need to change the Display Name. The word “spastic” (no matter the “creative spelling”) is generally considered to be offensive, and because display names are in the game and in the forums, we’re particularly sensitive to the potential offense that they present. (Yes, I’m aware that the word is used casually, like a lot of people use “ kitten #8221; in a casual sense, but both are disallowed because there’s really no good reason to use them.)

Character names: Ok (as long as they are not coupled with offensive behavior or chat)
Display name: Anagramed to “Tap Skis.8240”
