why i am not allowed to use my room name after all these years?

now yahoo has 'down'?graded to a new interface I find i can no longer log in for a chat as my room name 'hornchurchmale' contains the letters 'hor' which some my find offencive. I am offended that an area of london and a name of a local church (yes =hornchurch) is offensive! you might next say if a man uses another three well know letters in a name ( you work it out) say middlesexman he too will be found to be offensive. Is it not time teh polkitical correctness had a touch of common sense added?


apologise for typing errors but hey on a bright note they have 'lost' one long term yahoo customer. how many more will yahoo drop in order to not 'offend' .

    Hi Chris,

    I live in a small village approx' 8 miles from Hornchurch and it begins with 'Horn' also. I have had the same problem when using several sites for buying, selling or even booking tickets. I sometimes get a 'drop down' asking me if I have used the correct spelling. I think a lot of the problem stems from the fact that Yahoo answers is American based.

    I don't understand why they can pull a good English name like that out of the pile.

    Maybe during this election period they are actually frightened to allow anything they consider risky to load on site.
