Simplifies reporting names that violate the Naming Policy.
Update June 2009:
Check the "Optional Files" tab for the latest version, now maintained by Fincasann in my absence. Thanks Fincasann!

now works correctly with most recent patch (use the "Report Issue" button)
simplified auto-removal of reported names: user is now prompted whenever submitting a ticket

* When creating a ticket with 'Report Issue', the full report is shown for easy copy and paste.
Names are automatically removed once reported.
Fully customizable via interface options.
Q: Why can't I report names in battleground/arena matches?
1) You should be focused on winning the match, not reporting people.
2) You are more likely to report people in anger (because they clobbered you, etc.)
3) Players may be from all different realm types, and some violations don't apply to certain realm types.
Q: Why do users of NameViolation have to copy and paste the ticket message?
A: Because of the recent addition of the "Report Spam" feature, Blizzard assumed that there was no longer any need for reporting addons and removed the ability to automatically create new tickets. Yet the process to report Naming Policy violations remains very inconvenient.
Until this is addressed (suggestions have certainly been made), NameViolation works around this oversight by showing the report message in another frame for easy copy and paste. Note that it is currently impossible to directly set the text of the ticket window, or else that's just what this addon would do.
Q: Is this addon legal?
A: This addon does not allow players to do anything they cannot already do -- it just makes life easier. For example, players can already keep a list of names and report them using copy and paste. With NameViolation, there's just less alt-tabbing and/or scraps of paper to worry about.
