First off, its nice that the tribunal doesnt even say what the name is, so you have to rely on additional comments, if they decide to leave any. Anywho, it appears this guys summoner name was Adolf Hitler, according to the last case. And apparently this is banworthy?

This isnt me, I am ConcreteTomatoes. But i find this pretty silly.. His name is the same as an infamous political figure. That's it. By no means does this mean he idolizes the figure, or shares his beliefs (which is fine if he does, anyhow, as long as he isn't promoting racism in-game). If his name was FkJewz420 i would have laughed and never made this thread.

So if sharing names with a certain 'bad' or infamous person deserves a ban, are there any other names that warrant the same punishment? What about having Gaddafi as your name? Or Kim Jong Il? Or Satan? Or Charlie Manson? Orrrr OJ Simpson? He mightve killed a guy too

Honestly I dont believe 'Adolf Hitler' is inappropriate. I have seen inappropriate names, this is not one of them. This is just a man.

Hitler couldve been a pretty cool guy for all I know, He was just some political leader involved in a couple wars over 60 years ago.

People fail to realize that he was a great leader and actually discovered a lot of medicines.

When you report for "Inappropriate Name" the tribunal appends a note that has the name in question.

I wouldn't punish the name but his behavior was slightly vulgar.

Putting a supposition out there, and I know that it's not the most proper thing in a historical debate, but it's not a far stretch to say that being rejected from the Vienna Academy of Arts was what caused his rise as dictator. He could have been a great artist if he didn't become jaded and spend time in the German slums, then enlist in WWI.

He's not really toxic in any of those cases and I think the ban is unwarranted, agree with OP.

Yeah and if I'd been born with a better throwing arm I'd have been an NFL quarterback rather than a forum troll. See Riot, it's not my fault!
