I was just trying to report an abusive user under the "Report Inappropriate Content" section on the Playstation Website, but it continues to say "Special characters are not allowed."
I have taken out all colons, exclamation marks, and quotation marks that I previously had in the report, but it continues to display the same message. Could somebody please specify what special characters are not allowed for this kind of report? I would really appreciate it!
Are you following one of these links? Or are you doing it on the forums?
The report abuse link isn't very specific, it's possible that the user name has a special character? Try reporting it on the xmb?

Hello there! Thank you for your response.
I am using the report abuse feature through this link: https://np.us.playstation.com/
The username has underscores in it, but I didn't think those were special characters because special characters are not allowed when creating a username on the PSN. I'm not sure why it isn't letting me submit the report. I may have to take out any non-letter characters, but then the abusive user cannot be identified.
I tried reporting the user through my XMB, but it only allows me to submit a Grief Report on the messages, and the individual messages do not contain enough evidence for anything to happen.
