Can I change my profile display name or un-register? Posting requires a part of my email address, or my full name. It is unsafe for me, and I don't want to share that information. If I cannot change my display name to my first name only or some other safe name then I do not want to participate. Please remove me or tell me how to remove myself.

Thanks Oscar, we don't allow spaces for nicknames, this is why it was rejected, you can try something similar such as:

Oscar_Martinez, Oscar.Martinez, OscarMartinez, etc.

Oscar,

You're having the same conversation in two places. Did you read my explanation from yesterday?

Michelle,
You might want to merge Oscar's two posts
