please jeremy, can you change my username to "fbov" ?


Hello, I am removing anything on the internet that connects me to the username "<old_username>". As you can see I have changed my email and even deleted the previous one (and even renamed my machine and not renewed my historical domain name). I don't want to re-register since I have already setup my LQ in a fancy way, subscribing to threads and so on.
Would you please change my username to "fbov"? That'd be great.

Kind regards,

fbov

I suggest, then, that you edit your original post in this thread as it nicely ties the new name you want and your old name together in the same place. So, anyone googling your present username would find this thread pointing to your new one and could follow on from there.
If you're serious about anonymity never mention one username using another.

You're welcome. It's an easy thing to overlook and I've seen a few instances of people's other internet accounts being found due to somebody managing to make a link between usernames.

"fbov"

You forgot to use quotes. Now the user name is just fbov.
