Every once in a while people try to register with inappropriate user names like fuckYou. That's rather disheartening for our volunteer contributors. We should stop them from registering with those user names. There is a list from Google that we can probably start with: https://gist.github.com/1112488
Dupe of bug 481954?
Not exactly, consider this one part of that bug, but all Eric's concerns in bug 481954 comment 2 are still valid. Need to be careful here.
How thorough should this be? 1) hardcode a list 2) pull a bigger list from file 3) the above, then run it through the permutations on symbols and common alt chars (ex. 'badword' 'b.a.d.w.o.r.d' 'b@dw0rd') http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/The-Clbuttic-Mistake-.aspx
Please only compare to the linked list. The special wording for the error message: The user name you entered is inappropriate. Please pick another and consider that our helpers are other Firefox users just like you.
Verified a random selection from the list all triggered the 'inappropriate' message correctly
