Licensing authorities do tend to be on the conservative side when it comes to plates that could spell out controversial stuff like racist slurs, obscenities, blasphemy, hate or toilet words. I can see why 'grabher' could be seen as misogynistic, and I think that guy will just have to suck it up. Not his fault that he was born with that name, sure, and I guess he could start a business and put a big board up with GRABHER on it if he wanted. I don't think this is a seruious freedom of speech issue.
