Most likely they're using an old trick of putting ALT Code characters to bypass the naming rules. So, if you hold down the ALT key on your keyboard and type the number 0232 you get this character:

Which means people can pull stuff like naming themselves Ftt, or Skwalker or Sl. The system that catches names like "Fett" won't be looking for "Ftt," so they get by with it until someone reports them.

Edit: Almost forgot my favorite. You can put a space into a name using ALT-255. It's a different character from the normal spacebar, so it slips through most of these systems.

I do not recommend using any of these. Violating the naming rules can get you banned!
