What should I do with my username?

Back when I created my LJ, I chose Wlonkly as a username
because Rich was deleted-and-purged. I didn’t realize
at the time that I could rename
to a deleted-and-purged username, and now it’s sitting there tempting
me to do so now.

Background: I’ve used “mendel” on IRC for about eight years now. I
started using “wlonkly” as my alternate nickname on IRC after
Mark-Jason Dominus was
talking about “wlonk” on IRC one night, but it’s rare that I use
it for any long period of time. It’s also my AIM/YIM/MSN username,
but that’s because it was available on all of them.

So in short, the advantage of Rich is that it’s what I
use on IRC, and the advantage of Wlonkly is that it’s a lot
more unique
than “mendel” is and it’s what I’m already known as here on LJ, both in
my own journal and in the support area.
