Any attempt to view the user page of this user results in a blank page. I suspect this is because the name s/he has chosen is identical to the name of a directory in some systems that one (usually, rightly) blocks public access to.

I suppose unless the user chooses another name, his/her user page will never be accessible.

    $\begingroup$ I am almost tempted to rename my user to /bin and see how that goes. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Sep 15 '11 at 14:10

    $\begingroup$ Searching "bin" in the user tab of Stack Overflow gives 3 users with that name, and trying to access their user pages has the same result. $\endgroup$ – Jonas Meyer Sep 15 '11 at 17:35
  • $\begingroup$ Suprisingly, meta.stackoverflow does not seem to have this reported (for username). Found one tag related one though: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/74842/…, whose fix does not apply to the username, as there is some auto-redirection going on. $\endgroup$ – Aryabhata Sep 15 '11 at 22:23

After the next deploy bin will no longer be subjected to the horror of being shunned by the man. Users named bin everywhere will be able to rejoice.
