Actually, as soon as I saw that there was a hole for creating spoofed names, I created the " neshura" account myself. Not that I think that someone is going to come in and pretend to be me, but just to see if it worked, and what the behavior was when I logged in using that account. I noticed some odd behavior, such as:
  • leading space is stripped some places (e.g. within the Other Users nodelet) but not in others (e.g. the Chatterbox, where the nick shows up as "< neshura>")
  • some pages logged me out when i was trying to use the new nick
  • node=neshura and node= neshura both go to my real home node
I didn't look too extensively to see what other things I could and couldn't do with a {space}nick, but I'd say based on this behavior that leading spaces should definitely be stripped.

e-mail neshura
