Miss Hienrichs asked me today how the BAR might handle the onset of Display Names. So far we’ve asked for BAR usernames to match Avatar Names, for two purposes:
- make sure posts come from avatars, not impostors; and
- tell spammers from real avatars.
Or, more specifically, we don’t want some random griefer to start publishing comments as if he were Mosseveno Tenk.
With Display Names being A) non-unique and B) optionally private, it seems we may have difficulty with our policy going forward. Any ideas?
