Just create a new account and abandon your old one. Or ask Jeremy. BTW we've got a forum for such meta questions: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nd-feedback-7/. (Not that you should go an re-post your question now: that would be cross-posting.)

Interesting. You know, that's one thing which no bit of forum software seems to support: changing your name. Wonder why? It ought to be a fairly routine thing to do... If the desired new-name isn't taken, why is it so impossible? (That's a pure-thought question... Surely there must be a reason.)
