    Default Huff huff? That's my name!

    Facebook ban for odd names

    Facebook users with even slightly unusual names beware: your account can be suspended by the site's draconian administrators without warning and your personal information held to ransom until you show them a government-issued ID.

    That reality was made all too clear for Australian Elmo Keep this month when she tried to login to her account and was told she was banned for violating the site's terms of use.

    She is the latest in a string of people to be banned from the site without any prior warning or recourse because Facebook believed they were not using their real names.
    Other names who have previously faced the wrath of Facebook's name police include US political blogger Jon Swift, Japanese author Hiroko Yoda, British member of Parliament Steve Webb, Australian graphic designer Beta Yee, New Zealander Rowena Gay and countless others with names including "podcast", "beaver", "jelly", "beer" and "duck".
    Awwww~
