cokehabit had to run to a meeting, but he asked me to submit his request to have his name changed to "Butts McCracken" (per this thread).

Changing their user name seems to be quite a sport for some. Why is that so?

That question I wanted to ask for long.
Might be a sport in the fun chat forum.
Might be some people get upset just seeing your name. I had this experience: Then forum admins advised me to take a breather, which is the better alternative though.

Multiple user name change requests usually come only from people interested in serious discourse on a broad variety of topics, not mere myopic hobbyists that are enthusiastic only about a single topic (e.g., Gentoo Linux). We should give these folk the respect and deference they deserve.

Plus I had the same name with no change for 10 years... I think I'm allowed a change after a decade

And it came from a very funny thread: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-978526.html
