Off-hand I would say that 'censored' is a restricted word and cannot be used for a Username.

I doubt "censored" is the actual username he was using, plus, that username is allowed.

I don't know if this will help any, but here's the part of the account creation script (wwwacct) where that comes up.

Code:
if (!getpwnam($user)) {
	deaderror "Unable to add the user $user";	
}
I can study the code later, when I have a bit of time, to see what it means if no one else knows.
