I remember discussions, but a quick google didn't give me an answer to how to flag names that should be changed. In any case, a mod probably wants to have a look at this one.

    $\begingroup$ Be prepared for the moderators rejecting your flag, though. It might happen. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila: I'm not too invested (user is screaming for attention which I guess I gave him), but would have thought that this is solidly beyond what's ok. As I said before though, I would never want to be a mod and have to deal with this kind of stuff. $\endgroup$ Jul 7, 2014 at 1:37

    $\begingroup$ The comments there by this "I am so cool" user are even more repulsive than the name they chose, if you ask me. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Did: I feel the same way. I had a reply to the "comeback" written and was on the verge of copying it in...when my phone died (batts). Probably for the better. :) $\endgroup$ Jul 7, 2014 at 7:54

  • If the user has $>0$ posts, flag one of their posts and explain the problem.
  • If the user has $0$ posts, flag one of your posts and explain the problem.
  • If you also have $0$ posts, flag any post and explain the problem.

    $\begingroup$ What if the user and oneself have 0 posts? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @quid I originally thought that could not be the case, seeing as one needs 15 points to flag. But with the association bonus... edited. $\endgroup$
