forbidden usernames

Go back

You should create a list of forbidden usernames, at least to prevent scamming or phishing (even though I don't think there are many people still being scammed by that, prevention is better than cure).

"root", "bin", "adm", "operator", "admin", "administrator", "bureaucrat", "steward", "checkuser", "oversight", "sysop", "bot", etc.

It may be interesting to read Wikipedia username policy (as some keywords are coming from here). You may look for other username policies on the web.
