 Usernames for administrator attention

Important! Please remember the following:

  1. This page is for usernames that are such blatant and serious problems that they need to be immediately blocked.
  2. Reports are assessed according to the username policy and the UAA instructions. Please read those pages first.
  3. Please discuss less-serious violations with the user so that they can rename or abandon their account in good faith.
  4. If, after discussion with a user, the problem still seems unresolved, a username request for comment may be in order.
  5. Please do not leave a username warning template on a user's talk page and then immediately report them here. Either discuss it with the user, or report it for admin action, but don't do both at the same time.
  6. Real names are permitted except when they imply that the editor is a specific living person they are not.
  7. Do not report a username unless it has been used in the last 2-3 weeks. Older accounts are likely abandoned and reports of such users will be summarily declined.

    Matched: Used 1 instead of i attempting to skip filter: nazi. Violating string: bobnazi8 -- DQB (owner / report) 10:41, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
     Clerk note: Usernames that promote a controversial or potentially inflammatory point of view may be in violation of the username policy due to creating a hostile editing environment- but some real names contain the string "nazi" - especially names from the Middle East - be careful that this is not the case before blocking. -- DQB (owner / report) 10:41, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

False positive: Username is not a blatant violation of the username policy. Vanjagenije (talk) 09:34, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
Vanjagenije please reconsider. This was an old-fashioned, and now derogatory term for people with cerebral palsy commonly used over here in the UK. I know the Americans use "spaz" as a term for disabled people also. Zerotalk 15:13, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
@Patient Zero: Yes, I know, but "Spastic Hawk" seams to be some comic song [1]. I don't think it is intended to be derogatory. Vanjagenije (talk) 15:43, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
Indeed, I was unaware of that Vanjagenije but thanks for explaining. Zerotalk 16:01, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

User-reported[edit]

Not a blatant violation of the username policy, but it's worth keeping an eye on their edits. Doesn't look like an obvious violation, even after looking at their deleted edits. MikeLynch (talk) 19:45, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
