i played around with some usernames/clan names, and apparently:

 

J3SUS is a forbidden name, while luc1fer and s4t4n and 666 and many others like this isn't banned? (typed these words with some numbers in between because idk if these words might be banned on forums.)

 

pretty random topic but if u should ban one of them, u should surely ban all of them?

or are the freemasons in control of WG as well?:angry:

Jesus was a well know leader while a Planet or the Devil aren't.

I beg to differ, Satan is a renowned leader of multitudes of men.

Thankfully Mother raised me well and I will not succumb to his lures.

exactly, that wsatnutter guy is ... nvm

either you should ban all of the usernames resembling something like that, or all of them should be allowed, pick&choosing which ones you dislike shouldn't be allowed

A valid point methinks.

Religion on the internet is not allowed.

 

...for some odd reason, I'd rather see someone with a devillish username than one with a God-related name.

 

I guess maybe because I like memes, and dislike believers... God doesn't exist. You know it, you just don't wanna accept it. I look at everything logically. If I see God with my own eyes, only then will I believe.

Logical. Communism denies religion.

religion on the internet is not allowed? hmm ? is that a sarcastic statement or directed just towards gaming communities?

and btw there can be ''memes'' about God/Jesus as well, whether or not you believe it, is irrelevant.

If someone worshiped the devil --- should he be allowed to make a username that proclaims this? if the answer is ''yes'', well then a follower of Jesus should be allowed to do the exact same thing,

you can't just put certain circumstances to suit your own agenda, either everything related to Jesus and satan should be allowed, or everything should be disallowed

Ofc, sarcastic, related to OP's post. :trollface:

Yes I know, I just said "I'd rather see someone with a devillish username than one with a God-related name" because I'm more fond of the former than the latter...I guess. :hiding: I don't "worship" either one, just to be clear.

 

I never said what should or shouldn't be allowed, apart from the first sarcastic statement, as I already mentioned...

I would hope for obvious reasons, least of which... it's in the rules, ToS, and the EULA. You should be able to understand why. 

 

People generally can't discuss these things without resorting to the age-old "I will win this debate by arguing, I will win this argument by being the loudest and using the most insulting words".

Now I'm having recollections of Arnold Judas Rimmer having his name changed because it contains Judas.

the rules are very open to interpretation.

for example it's clear that "J3SUS" was treated differently than "S4T4N" although both are figures of Christian mythology, and both are the subject of religious worship.
