Back when I was a regular on the #jeopardy IRC channel, I'd occasionally use the nickname a1exbot to cause confusion with alexbot. Oh, it was great fun. But efaper's attempt to create a straw man's troll for efader is less cool.
Probably no way to counter this. Maybe user profiles can have a born-on date like so many bottles of Bud? This way, old-timers can get the cred they deserve (teehee!), and it can be clear whether a username had been generated that morning for immoral purposes.
