FAQ #127 - Why can't I have a particular username?

FAQ 127 is missing a big reason why people can't have a particular username, though it is covered in FAQ 25. Not having in FAQ 127 seems a bit silly, and with the recent purge, is likely to increase traffic to the support board.

Would it be possible to add another bullet item under Registered Accounts that reads along the following lines?

  • Redirected Usernames: Usernames that redirect to another account are not available for renaming, even if the account being redirected to is deleted and purged.

This should probably go just before the existing bullet item labeled Deleted and Purged.
