Re: (2) Is it possible for a monk to rename himself? (also consider responses/reactions by fellow monks)by ybiC (Prior)

Good monk Biker makes some valid points about one person using multiple PerlMonk IDs, and I'd like to add just one thought.
In addition to considering his own personal ethics (conscience?), brother vkonovalov should also weigh the likely or possible response from fellow monks. In the past, such actions have resulted in substantial ill will. Feelings have gotten hurt, and a monk or two have even left in a huff. I'm not saying that punitive reactions are necessarily good for the Monastery, mind you, just mentioning what I've seen in just over two years here.
Anyways, it looks to me like that's why Vadim asked. 8^)cheers,
