    Default Sony PSN Does not allow the word "Punk"

    haha,
    So.... I'm probably not the only one that ran into this, but of course I tried to register the user name "JoblessPunk"

    When I found out that I couldn't use that User name I contacted them, called and talked to a real person.

    Nooo.... the name JoblessPunk is not taken by someone else... mater of fact no one can register any User ID name with the word "Punk" in it. I guess with there new contract with SCEA they blocked the word "punk" for some reason...


    I sent them this Email:

    I've tried every variation with the word "Punk" but its not allowed. ANYTHING with the word "Punk" in it doesn't work.

    Why?
    I don't understand how that would be on your "not allowed words" list....
    Here's there response:

    Very specific questions on any particular product (e.g., manufacturing process), programming details of software or hardware, 'reasons or beliefs' on why a product did or did not include certain features, personal opinions, and personal contact information for developers, publishers, and other company employees, are some of the topics that cannot be addressed. Also, there are certain topics that we may not be able to address due to the fact that they are confidential and proprietary to SCEA.

    haha, so I found that amusing,
    I know that there are some users that have the word "Punk" in it, but I guess with there new rules its on the "F list" haha

    haha, idk, it doesn't make sense to me either, but when I asked they slapped that copy/paste info at me.

    My first thought was maybe it looked like F**K, but you can register Funk... but not Punk... haha
