Ahh... the dreaded "by design" answer ;)
Hopefully, you folks can take a fresh look at this at some point, and consider a design change. I don't see any value added by the current approach, but I do see some shortcomings. I think that many people would consider that their first name and last name should remain private within the profile and the supplied nick name be used instead for any personal references that are publicly visible.
Thanks for your response.
