It needed to be changed because it was in violation of the naming rules
and someone disliked it enough that they bothered to report it.
I'm curious though, what rule exactly does it violate?
I can't think of any, assuming it's not an RP server (if it is
then ban from RP servers would be a more fitting punishment, I
hate it when people don't even try to fit in on those - there's
plenty non-RP servers if you don't want to RP...), it's not
