It's the "mon" in Lemondrop... why block out "mon" when you don't block out "stupid"?

Yes, you're right and I agree - that is rude.

I'm not sure how their filters work but it does make you wonder and shake your head over it. I have a Seahorse I wanted to name Seashell (a perfectly harmless word) but it wouldn't let me and yet I see some really rude (and most definitely inappropriate) names in the Clubhouse.

I just report them - there's no reason to be subjected to that, in my opinion.

I don't think the word stupid in a pet name is enough to report them. IF ganz allowed it then they allowed it. Now people should read the rules of reporting people.

I can't believe that. That name went through the filter?

Yeah, it's a little rude, silly to name your pet that, but is it THAT bad? It's not a bad word, or a harmful word. Is there really the need to mass report it? If Ganz doesn't block the word stupid for names, then it's not against the rules, and therefore, not reportable. Don't get all upset about this, just ignore it. Having someone name their pet "my stupid pet" doesn't affect you at all, just leave it be.

Thing is, as parents, we are constantly telling our younger children (the under 10 set) not to use the word "stupid" because it's rude. Now, since there are a lot of children in that age bracket on Webkinz, it does affect many. I know that, as a parent, I don't want to hear, "But M-o-o-o-o-m, I saw it on Webkinz so it must be OK!!!"
