I have the same problem. The thing is, in a Linux environment, the username IS the account. Everything is tied to it and capital letters makes it a
different account name. Although you don't see it in raw format, every user has a sub-directory on the filesystem. You can compare it to
"MyDocuments" on a Windows system, though the analogy is a bit off. If you were to create a new username, then everything associated with your old
account, from posts to points to stars, would be lost. It's technically possible for a sysadmin to transfer stuff over, but this is labor intensive,
so I understand why ATS has a policy not to do it. With as many users as they have they absolkutely must be as efficient as possible.
