Pony: color-coded user names

Colored usernames. How about a per-user defined option to have usernames show up in custom colors to keep track of users I want to read (red) and users I don't (gray) and everyone else (default). Or some other way to highlight when a user I really like posts without having to memorize lots of names.

Similar usernames confuse some readers

On a recent MeTa thread, Vidiot got mixed up over crunchburger and crunchland. Earlier, someone else had done the same with specialk420 and dejah420. Obviously it's imperative that Matt immediately ban similar-sounding user names. [More inside...]

capitalizing usernames.

A minor etiquette question, really, regarding punctuation and capitalization. Join me inside, won't you?

Username embarrasses me

Would it be out of line to ask new member ( . )( . ) to choose another handle? It's annoying and embarrassing to type; vaguely sexist and makes it difficult to address his comments seriously because it's so graphically distracting.
Come on, Jason Kent, do yourself and all of us a favour and choose a sobriquet with some letters in it. It can be as juvenile as you like, but minimally verbal. You seem keen and have points to make. We'd appreciate the gesture, believe me.

What is the correct form of address here at MetaFilter? Real names or screen names?

What is the correct form of address here at MetaFilter? Or isn't there one? Real names seem to be used more and more. In this thread holgate and ljromanoff address each other as Lance and Nick. Can we use a real name when we know it - by exchanging emails with someone, for instance? Isn't it confusing for everyone else? Does it make others feel left out? (Examples inside.)

Usernames and user id numbers

Recently I've found myself passing the mouse cursor over usernames only to see their ID number. I was thinking for a bit as to why (Is it number envy? Is it newbie-spotting?) What if the user IDs were somewhat to completely hidden? What would be the pros or cons?

does MeFi have any policy regarding usernames?

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Fishfucker.

So my question is - and I'm not offended by this, merely curious - does MeFi have any policy regarding usernames?

I just think it's a bit unfortunate to see someone's rank being used to judge the usefulness of his or her argument.

Search feature to sort links/comments by username?

Is it possible to add a search feature that would allow someone to sort links/comments made by username?
