Tech retailer Newegg finally scraps 15-year ban on the name 'Mohammad'

Newegg users can now give their name as "Mohammad" when leaving reviews, because apparently they couldn't do that before.
The issue was brought to light by Mohammad Al-Tayyar, a government worker in Kuwait, who discovered it after attempting to review one of the products on Newegg's website.
"I was writing a review @Newegg and the system marked my name (Mohammad) as: "UNACCEPTABLE WORDS USED — offensive language," Al-Tayyar tweeted on Wednesday, sharing a screenshot of the error message.
"Is my name offensive @Newegg?"

Is my name offensive @Newegg 🥚?
He was shocked to see Newegg flag his name as potentially offensive "in a big red alert all in caps."
Words were added when used inappropriately on our site, so likely there was an incident back then that led to this.
Our apologies — Newegg (@Newegg) April 8, 2021Al-Tayyar told Mashable he emailed Newegg about this issue, but has not yet received a response.
However, Newegg did quickly respond on Twitter, apologising and stating that "Mohammad" has now been removed from its list of prohibited words.
Still, Al-Tayyar questioned why his incredibly common given name had been added to the ban list at all.
"It's unfortunate that other[s] have abused that word in the past enough to cause it to be added to the list," tweeted Newegg.
