In my understanding, the small community requires more attention to prevent situations like this.
In a big community or a game server, you usually see the same players very rarely (different matchmaking). In EE2, nicknames starting with "(((" are first ones on the list of online players. It already takes some attention.
At the moment we're already censoring nicknames containing "Hitler", "Stalin" (this was due to ex-minister TheGrouchDE's request, so I didn't discuss if it's needed or not).
Nicknames like "kill jews", "siegheil", "nig**r", "chink" are also forbidden. Players who're trying to use such names, are asked to change them on login time. They get a special pop-up where they can insert a new nickname. So this method isn't problematic nor doesn't require additional steps from players in order to get access to their accounts back.
Regarding "Pu$$y Destroyer" nicknames, it's nothing that would require our attention. Racism is a totally different thing, that can not be ignored by the Administration.
Now, some of you claim it's a "4chan" troll, but the Wikipedia page (of course not the best source since anyone can modify it), says:
Triple parentheses or triple brackets, also known as an (((echo))), are an antisemitic symbol that has been used to highlight the names of individuals of a Jewish background.
So the troll could be based on something that has really happened.
I want to make it clear, I personally didn't analyze this case. I know that Matty is reviewing it and also reads other sources. So we will see what his decision is. I'm actually happy that the Department of Justice is active, because I can focus on more important things.
hey matty you talk like a nun
