On Wikienews this afternoon, someone posted a message using the name "AutisticPsycho". They were blocked by a moderator as having an "inappropriate user name". Now someone else has come online asking how that name could cause offence! I'm with the moderator on this. I think its a bad name to use. Anyone else?
we have a 'PsychoMum' I will give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that they are either autistic or have an autistic child.
Assuming they have nothing to do with autism then I would say it was offensive.
They would have to expect controversy though and they certainly should be able to understand why at least some people would get upset. Personally I think if your name upsets some people it's best to change it (even if you like it)
