As a username it's forbidden to use:

  • offensive, desecrating, rude or racist names, including curses, anatomical names, racist insults of their homonyms;
  • offensive words (for example, Samdurak, Youislooser);
  • religious, occult or important historical names (for example, Jesus, Allah, Satan, Hitler, Hell, Demon);
  • names of drugs and devices for their use (eg, ecstasy, hashish, marijuana, cannabis).

All usernames that fall under the above categories are subject to immediate blocking and/or deletion without prior notice and any compensation. User accounts can not be renamed.

It is extremely undesirable to use:

  • brand names of products, services or concepts (eg Marlboro, Sony, Band-Aid).

Questions related to the use of the names of this category will be decided by the Administration on an individual basis.
