    Hi all, Could someone please try and explain when ever i use my name Mick when chatting, wgt has decided that my name has been classed as inappropriate. I can only think that the USA Pc brigade must have ruled out. I am from England and i have never had a problem.

    Thank you

    Apparently in New Zealand it's slang for a woman's private parts.

    Thank you Mel, glad that we do not all have to let " others " to do the thinking for us.

    Perhaps 'Rich' would be a good alternative, Mel.

    I am sure that most Irish have been called a lot worst and that they would not have a problem, if they do i am sorry but i am not calling anyone a name, just using the shorter version of Michael, which my mum & dad gave me, So i find it more insulting that i am not allowed to use my own name.

    Well that is a new one on me, Maybe wgt need to compile a list or book of derogatory terms. That should take some time and it would also be interesting if we all felt the same.

    All joking apart if we continue the follow the Pc path of righteousness, when will "chat " be  banned.

    Mick but in the forum they allow it (lol) in the chat try putting a space between the M and the ick (M ick) some times that will not trip the sensors.

    This is all getting beyond ridiculous. I was watching an episode of 'Rip Off Britain' the other day, which featured a lady having problems creating an online account with some corporation or other, because her surname, McManus, kept getting rejected by the computer system because of an unacceptable word.

    God help anyone who lives in Sc**thorpe!
