The site's auto-filter apparently took the man's name out of context as an anti-homophobic slur.

Quit journalizing. Apply at Burger King.

TheGogmagog: Cyberluddite: Not quite as funny as a few years ago when some fundie Christian "news" site, in reposting wire service news stories, filtered the word "gay" to "homosexual" (fundies never use the word "gay" to describe gay people, since they think it implies that you can be "happy" as a sodomite sinner). This resulted in the stories about Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay coming out like this:

He also happens to possess a surname that might trip up some 12-year-old boys -- or, apparently, an anti-vulgarity auto-filter used by the Sports Illustrated site Fan Nation.

Fail tag belongs to subby -- this wasn't ESPN.

I've run into this problem (Dyke is in my name). The most memorable was when ToysRus wouldn't let my wife ship a gift, saying that our inscription (and billing info) was offensive. She actually wrote them about it and the response was basically, "We're sorry you have an offensive name. Have you considered changing your it?"

By taking note you of course mean rolling a dollar bill into a cocaine straw.
