I am not allowed to write my frist name anywhere on fiverr, which is actually very discriminating, as my name is as innocent as John or Michael. It is a Turkish name of Arabic origin and just means “a messenger”.
I cannot write it in any custom order or message to a seller, because then the message will get flagged. But it’s actually discriminating and caused all of my messages to get flagged, until I realized it was because of my name.
My idea is that the name gets flagged, because the first four letters (the name itself has actually five letters) happens to coincidentally be an abbreviation for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party - yes, the one responsible for all the crimes of the second world war, which we hopefully all know and hate.
But, seriously, even though it’s a bit funny, I would love to use my name on fiverr. It has nothing to do with that terrible political party. If I was living in the United States, I could probably sue fiverr for millions for this, but as I’m living in Germany (funny, right?), I will just ask politely to fix it.
Thanks and best regards
