I have to agree that showing the names pushes the religious motif a bit too far. And I think moritz makes a great point regarding current level vs. the level someone was at while posting in Re: A request from level 21. And I know there is a way to turn it off, but I think displaying the level name (or number) should be opt-in, not opt-out.

Besides, someone's post should be voted on based on the merits, not what level they are at. And what does someone's level really mean? At best its an indicator of how long they have been here. For example, I'm a Priest but so is TheDamian -- and Dominus is just one level higher. Yet in terms of skills and knowledge I might as well be in a different universe compared to them.

Quite frankly I just do not see how shoving someone's level in everyone's face contributes anything positive to this site. A song about swallowing a spider to catch a fly comes to mind.... Maybe what we should do instead is just indicate if someone is new (i.e. joined within the past X number of days).
