Hello everyone.

I have a issue with blizzard at the moment.

See I had this 3 characters, named: Mujahideen, Mudzahidin, and Iraniano (iranian).

Recently I was suspended by blizzard for my names, seems like the offend some groups...
I kind of understand the Mujahideen problem,
Due to recent media bad info, mujahideens are warrior of jihad, and not warriors of desert/fait...
Still beeing a Mujahideen doesnt means terrorist.

but thats politics and this is a game i get it.

Why im I doing this Topic than?

Well, Why do I have to change the name of my Iraniano character? (iranian).
Isnt this a bit too much already?

I cannot enter in my character since day 1 april because I have to change the name.
I feel like im beeing targeted for choosing Muslim related names.

There are alot of characters called "english", "italian", "zionist".

Why cant I be called Iraniano? did Iranians did a terrible thing that we all need to censur them?

If you dont mind blizzard I want to keep my name as Iraniano.
