Hello all,

I understand the reasons for this first/last name requirement but what I don't understand is the two instances I've seen so far when forum members have taken it upon themselves to ask a user with a non-english name to change it to their 'real' name - either ignorant to the fact that it is indeed the users name (?) or worse, were they even asking them the anglicise it for ease of pronunciation ?

Scary stuff.

My suggestion is to leave that stuff to the moderation team.

Instances?

Not being awkward, just want to know who we're talking about.
