What do you do when your desired username is taken on a site that you are trying to sign up for? I usually check to see if it's an active user and if it's not then I'll usually contact the site directly and ask nicely to have the account deleted so I can have the name. When they come back and say "Sorry but we don't ever delete accounts, even inactive ones" I get pretty annoyed. I hate thinking of new names and I really hate when the name I wanted is being wasted by somebody who has never done a single thing with it. Half the time they haven't even logged in since creating the account. Sometimes I will just refuse to register. So, what do you do when this happens? Do you get really annoyed or is it no big deal to just pick a new name?
