Re: Re(2): Beware the Trolls!
in thread Beware the Trolls!
I am unhappy with the idea of associating people and email
addresses publically and often.
Fair enough(though e-mail itself does that by it's very nature),
but the person could enter some other identifier.
Their real name, SSN, or perhaps Bob forbid
the address for a non-primary email account ;-)
And then perhaps the firendly message would say
"Would you like to register an account with this username?"
Presenting a few radio button options:
the entered string,
$username = $1 if $username =~ /^(.*)@/,
and an input field to enter a different username;
filtering out any options that match pre-existing usernames.
