The character and past of various people that make up the wide variety that are the cohesiveness of the website.
If someone is being stalked or has had threats or wants to hide his personal makeup and past history, that should be dealt with differently anyhow.
I just don't think anyone should be able to change their name because they feel like it.
Are you freaking kidding me? You have to be trolling, you just have to. I refuse to believe that you have absolutely no grasp of basic logic.
On the off chance that you're serious, what you say has absolutely no relevance. If someone wants to hide thier identity, they can just start a new acount with a new username, and NO ONE will ever know. The reason someone would change their name instead of starting a new account, is BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KEEP THEIR POST HISTORY AND "IDENTITY". Think about it, what you're saying is completely nonsensical.
Besides, this is an internet message board. Someone changing their user name really doesn't affect you all that much. I know the ski is falling and the world is ending and they're all going to laugh at you and we're all going to hell, but just take a deeeeeep breath and tell yourself it will all be ok.
BTW, I have been thinking of changing my screenname. Not to hide anything, but just because I think MAGGOT is just a little obnoxious.
