Examples of inappropriate names include, but are not limited to:
Any name that violates the Battlefield Heroes Rules of Conduct or EA Terms of Service. This includes names that are racially motivated, sexually graphic, anatomical and excretory references, hateful, defamatory, ethnically derogatory, in reference to hate groups, or
