it wasn't actually me - all my names are going to be similar in style to what i'm using in LotRO
i don't know what the name was specifically that the person tried to use, but their description was that it was 'mild language' (which, they argued, is covered by the age rating on the game itself.) the GW2 forums censored the word to 'kitten' which is standard for most swearing/crude language on their forums. the same user gave AssPunch as a second example, which got past the filters - but would probably be banned in-game anyway due to it being 'inappropriate action in regards to human anatomy' (or whatever the exact wording is on the naming rules
) the player had made the character and run around the world for 5 minutes, and on logging out got an error message at character selection. after relogging their account, they found the block in place. hardly enough time for a report, much less for a GM to have time to act on it - so whatever the name was, it was caught by automated systems.
but it's nice to see that the policies will, in fact, be implemented in such a way as to make people think twice about using an inappropriate name on further attempts. i remember in LotRO, a long time back, someone bragging about how a GM had contacted him about an inappropriate name, and he managed to get the GM to issue him with another name which was again inappropriate - but the GM hadn't the wit to understand it, and found himself dealing with the same player a few days later because of another report. the only punishment was another change of name (though this time to something that wasn't in any way inappropriate.)
edit - there are a few people making the same complaint about being suspended, though none denying that they had used something inappropriate, so this isn't an isolated fluke but instead a system actually working effectively
