Help! Account will be closed due to offensive username, while it is perfectly fine :-O

You have had many user-names before. You you will have many user-names in the future. Take a deep breath out of that big glass jar, and move on.

I think it might be because of your trash talking at the beginning of games, you are a nice guy I have seen but maybe people report you after losing

This guy seems pretty chill and not the type to trash talk. I may be mistaken, as I have not played them before, but trash-talking and "offensive username" are two completely different things. Your statement seems to have no evidence (have you played them before? Have you spectated a game where they have trash-talked?) and I would advise you not to go around making judgements on why Lichess have issued a warning about usernames to someone.

that wouldnt cause an inappropriate username warning, that would cause a temporary chatban

Perhaps the "kill" could be replaced with "open", thereby retaining the essential element of the name, highlighting the opening reference and removing the word that has probably triggered the warning.
