What do you know. Played this dude who actually did have a nick I do find offensive: "IsmetJihad". Anything about islamic terrorism makes me sick to my stomach.

Hi @Dr_Yevskij, It's a sensitive subject and I'm not going to assume the intentions of the player that created the alias. In today's climate, I can understand how the word Jihad instantly reminds most people of unfortunate acts of terror, but in it's origin, the word means "struggle" or "effort".
Ismet is a name like any other. It's not about Islamic terrorism until we make it about it.

I don`t think the offensive usernames show that players have "humor", but just childish people. It is time to grow up..

So, when is "Adolf" coming off the naughty list? As you know, it's a sensitive subject and I'm not going to assume the intentions of the player that created the alias. In today's climate, I can understand how the word Adolf instantly reminds most people of unfortunate acts of terror, but in it's origin, the word means "noble" or "wolf".
Adolf is a name like any other. It's not about Nazi terrorism until we make it about it.

We're gonna win on so many levels! We're gonna win, win, win. You're gonna get so tired of winning, you're gonna say: "Mr. President please, we don't wanna win anymore, it's too much!" And I'm gonna say: "I'm sorry, we're gonna keep winning because we're gonna make America great again!"

Let's play without aliases and while we're at it we should get rid of chip stacks as people might be offended by my big stack. We should all get dealt the same two cards and not be allowed to bet either.

Wow, I've realy set myself up with this one haven't I @WuDu . . To be honest, I didn't know that's the case with Adolf, I'll look into it if we can get it back. I'm sure there are hundreds of such examples, I realy don't want to open a can of worms here.
