So...that acronym could stand for a lot of things. It could stand for the the Egyptian deity Isis. It's also not the official name of the terrorist organization that you're offended by.

Good points. +1

Definitely not the best choice. Back in Star Wars Galaxies there was a clan that used CCCP for its clan tag which I didn't think was a good choice either but at least the Soviet Union didn't exist anymore.

A good point but what will the vast majority of people think of first?

Cry me a river, OP, then build a bridge and get over it!

As stated, that isn't their official name, and in any case, they are all but eliminated as an effective fighting force, much less as anything like a state.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, at first blush it looks bad. Hell, it could be bad. But ISIS does have some ambiguity to it, where crap like KKK or NAZI does not.

That acronym could mean a lot of things, it was around long before Deash. Did you bother to look them up and find out their whole name? Either way I can think of several clan names that are way worse.

The acronym "ISIS" was made up by the media. The word itself, as previously mentioned, is the name of the Egyptian mother goddess, who has been part of religion and mythology for 2500 years. Just because an acronym is spelled the same as a word doesn't mean that the word should never be used again. For instance, CAT scans have nothing to do with my pet cat.

OP, obviously they knew what they were doing when they chose the acronym.  However, I don't think Wargaming has any specific rules about being morons.

Is censorship what you want WarGaming to get involved with. I for one would not care for it. There will always be things that bother us, don't let it take liberty to be ourselves. Sorry English is not one of my better languages. might be expressed better by someone who speaks English better.

I can't find the clan [ISIS] so they must have used non-standard character substitutions for the letters. However, I found a clan named [SXRP] SexRapist and another named [FKBOI] Fuckbois that probably should be disbanded. My favorite clan name so far is [GEIST] Unholy Kittens.

No, well at least I don't but that clan should have thought of the possible negative ways that tag could be taken or maybe they did wanting this kind of notice.

I think that is sophistry; when you see the clan name you do not think of Egypt, you think of terrorists. 

 

That being said, the OP should report it and not open a thread

I have seen it but we are a lot farther away from the cold war than back then.
