As I wrote in the Michaela Kiersch thread:

Referring to changing your MP user name to that of someone else...

Ted Pinson wrote:Wait...you can do that? :o
Apparently yes. IIRC, in the past it required an admin to make the change. While I think it a good idea to be able to change your name, it is totally unacceptable to be able to change it to be the same as another user.
MP needs to fix this fast!

The post that triggered this:

Kyle Tarry wrote:User posting above isn't me. It appears that he changed his screenname to match mine in order to make inappropriate comments? Based on a quick Google cache search, he used to be "HarryN Netzer." Current name: mountainproject.com/v/winte… Old name (Jan 11th): webcache.googleusercontent.…;cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us I don't know if this guy is buds with kenr and is trying to help his bro out or what, but it's pretty lame. Seems like changing your screenname to impersonate somebody else doesn't exactly align with "don't be a jerk." Way to stay classy. Why's this place going to shit? Because of crap like that.

Yeah, that does suck.

For entertainment (when the act is known) can be humorous, but for fraudulent purposes, it is unacceptable.

Kind of a lowlife characteristic, if you ask me. Glad nobody cares enough on what I say here to do that to my handle - mine being a dumb handle anyway.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
