Assassin "Error, Text phobited due to profanity"

______________________________

"Error

Text phobited due to profanity"

Seriously?

I can't call one of my custom classes, Assassin?

Major fail, never mind that ass is the name of an animal and appears in the words mass, bass and class.

(It even appears in the menu where you set-up class)

Embarrassing!

(oh, look I said it again! [Monty Python reference])

Re: Assassin

Can a few people get behind this thread?

There are droves of people having other issues, which I respect, I'm one of them, but I think this one small issue is worth trying to get changed to see if Treyarch are listening.

It must surely take 2 minutes to fix.

I tried naming my LMG classes - LSAT and HAMR and both came up blocked due to profanity ?

Really ?  I had to go with L-SAT and HAM-R instead.

I find the need for censorship on custom class names pretty ridiculous to be honest. Nobody can see what the classes are called apart from yourself so what's the problem? Treyarc have done absolutely everything they can to moderate the fun this year haven't they. Strange one.

I tried to name one of mine Assualt because it had an Assualt rifle as the main weapon but that was a profanity, its just political correctness gone mad I mean the game is an 18 and the aim of the game is to win via killing the opposition and yet they think that a class name could offend people, what a joke!

I managed to call some of my classes ASSAULT, ASSAULT 2 etc with no problems, I'm not sure why you couldn't?
