Now, now: we've talked about this before. Tempting though it may be, I must decline. ;)

Just a hypothetical (so don't change me just yet or anything), but if a user wanted to change their forum name to "Biggus Dickus", would that be over the line?

I suspect so, but "Something Innocuous" is open.

How long can a username be? Is "Sir Richart Burton, the Eponymous Dick" too long?

It seems so. Empirically measured from the UI, the limit appears to be 40 characters so "The Artist Formerly Known as BoneKracker" would also work.

I would like to change my username to "Sir Richard Burton, the Eponymous Dick" please. :)

Edit: wait. Okay, how about just "Eponymous Dick".
