in thread Beware the Trolls!

Someone said:

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.
