Another case was that of a user with an account like 'Kike_0615' which is a diminutive of the name "Enrique" which is used as a derogatory term to refer to the Jews. The complaints of the elimination of this account in Reddit covered almost 3000 comments and more than 25,000 points according to the Reddit voting system. After the web pages echoed this news, Kike_0615 reported that Sony had contacted him. It is common for players to be banned from online services for using terms that are not acceptable in their usernames. Although they are some of the occasions when they are punished for using a diminutive of their real name. A user of the PlayStation Network named Enrique, says that the latter happened recently.



In a publication on reddit, Enrique reported that his account of the PlayStation Network was banned a few days ago mysteriously. Given this situation, the player contacted Sony, who informed him what was the reason for this decision. He explained that it was only a diminutive of his name -Kike- and a number, which surprised him





Enrique says that he decided to investigate a little and discovered that, in Anglo-Saxon countries, his nickname is used as a pejorative term to refer to Jews. The player apologized to those who may have been offended by his nickname and believes it is necessary to find a solution that allows him to keep his account all his games.




Unfortunately Sony's technical support has not been very helpful. They were advised to make another account; however, with that he would lose access to his digital purchases. Then they told him to get back in touch when he starts with another username. This is not the first time that Sony banned a player, some time ago he gave in to a player for being called Jihad, where they related his name to the holy war
