Very funny Werewolf,
in all your comments you defend this display name "feature" like its your idea, thats ok.
But why you worry about my idea that premium members should get "special protection of their usernames". And why you complain "Basic account holders often have just as much to lose from being impersonated as premium account holders do".
Wasn't it you who teach us in all your comments that this display-name "feature" is not a problem.
Must be my bad english, or did i misunderstand you? You sound worried too now (smiles)
Anyway, i need no weekly L$300, i need no Linden-Home, i need a protected name, nothing else. And this blogs shows that many many others want to have their name protected from beeing misused by griefer, Linden want it too (but only protect their own names).
So again dear Jack Linden, i need no display-names in rainbow colors or hundreds of possibilities to find the username behind the display-name... i don't need this whole display-name nonsense.
But we all know you will do this mistake anyway, so please protect premium member names, same as you protect your Linden name.
