Ok...believe me when I say that I already know that this is going to cause me no end of grief. But I'm Ok with that because I'm just about tired of the rampant stupid on Silver Hand.

Names.

I know for some of us, coming up with a "good" fantasy type name for our characters can be difficult. I get that, I really do.

And I know that World of Warcraft is rated T for Teen. Ok, no problem.

But come on, REALLY? When did it become acceptable to have characters with names like Blowjjob, Kotexsnugfit, Memberfdic, and Shamwowzz, just to name a few. Blowjjob? Kotexsnugfit? SERIOUSLY? You morons do realize that despite the rating, kids do play this game right? What makes you think that names like that are OK? Oh right, the fact that Blizzard does next to nothing about them.

Now before you start flaming me, allow me to remind you of the rules for playing on a RP realm.

https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/roleplaying-policy

the main part being:

Naming

Non-Medieval/Fantasy Character Names
This category includes any Non-Medieval or Non-Fantasy names (i.e. Slipnslide, Robotman, Technotron).
If a player is found to have such a name, he/she may:

Be assigned a randomly generated name
Be given the appropriate additional penalty if the name violates standard naming rules.

Real World Referencing Names
This category includes both clear and masked names which are references to very well known people, characters, places, or icons (i.e. Britneyspears, Austinpowers, Mcdonalds, Georgewashington, Newyork)
If a player is found to have such a name, he/she may:

Be assigned a randomly generated name
Be given the appropriate additional penalty if the name violates standard naming rules.

Partial or Complete Sentence Names
This category includes names which consist of multiple (generally more than 2) words strung together to create partial or complete sentences (i.e. Inyourface, Welovebeef, Howareyou)
If a player is found to have such a name, that player may:

Be assigned a randomly generated name
Be given the appropriate additional penalty if the name violates standard naming rules.

If you're stuck for a name when creating a character, use the Randomize button, that's what it's there for.

There ya go, flame away.

Name calling is also against the rules. Yet you sit here and do it, and then tell people to follow the rules

It was used for emphasis, because clearly anyone who uses a name like the examples I gave, or say.....Thermadin, either doesn't get the rules, doesn't think the rules apply to them or just doesn't care.

Still broke the rules and called someone a name. aka harassment

You must think the rules don't apply to you then too

Ahh but I do. And if the powers that be choose to punish me for that, so be it.

Rules are for everyone. One infraction is not quite the same as a continuous one. You apparently don't get that.

So, what you're trying to tell me here, is that people didn't have perspiration problems in the middle ages?
