I am aware of exactly one legitimate case of a FAS account where the
user had a single word as their complete legal name. I reject about 5-10
CLAs daily, due to one of the following reasons:

* Name is incomplete (sometimes, this is because only the first or last
name is used "John" instead of "John Doe", sometimes it is because they
used initials "John D." or "J. Doe", and sometimes, the names are not
separated in any way "johndoe")
* Name is obviously not the real legal name of the contributor. (e.g.
"BBW Pornhunter", "Stewie Gilligan Griffin")
* Phone number is absent or obviously incorrect (e.g. "555-1212",
"--------", "0000000000000")

In the past, we used to reject CLAs for an absent or obviously incorrect
mailing address, but Fedora no longer requires that information.
