A common thing people do online is deliberately l33tspeak some names to ward of namesearching with the intent to start a fight. Would it be possible to have a text styling option that leaves the text the same, but makes it not searchable?

A lot of it probably boils down to "the VAs are very white and they are being directed to emulate 80s rap, which sounds really whack unless you got the attitude to back it up and they don't."
Say what you want about white nerdcore rap, but when it's good, they focus on delivering the punchlines and not sounding like they think the rapping itself is the punchline.
I feel like it shouldn't be impossible to fake something halfway decent? A lot of Epic Rap Battle-style videos I imagine are usually made by people who aren't trained rappers and who fake it with editing, and they mostly tend to sound fine for what they are?
