It was a joke. You said "same here" and I was pretending to read it literally, since he asked to capitalize M and O and you have neither letters in your name. Get it? Haha. Ok, not funny after having to explain it :-)

@LaFawn: Yea, it's just the matter IF or WHEN. I would like to CAP my B and K just like CaptianAlbator 'cause his so cool right now. *lol* In all seriousness I wouldn't mine would be spaced.
@READERS: I discourage you not post your future PSN gamertag so it's doesn't get lifted by other readers. Keep it in your head.
@Eightboll: *lmao* Sorry.

@CaptianAlbator: So when you say "I'll be outraged" your really implying yourself 'cause you'll be outraged if they did. Microsoft does this for 1200 points which translates to 16 bucks. 10 bucks would be saving money. No.
@kythunder: God help us if they did it for free. THEN users would change their names at will, left and right, it would be chaotic. Thats why you charge people to discourage them to not make it a habit.
@Eightboll: I'm pretty sure he's talking about the M and O in ManOverBoard. It's just that I think he forgot to add the B as well.
@CaptianAlbator: When there's people against this practice there's also people that regret their gamertag and would want to change them. Look at Eightboll he/she has 812 it could mean something or not but if given the chance to change it to just Eightboll he/she would.The Last Lone Wolf Vandalier
You do realize that this practice falls right into line with Microsoft's business practice of nickel and diming you to death for everything, don't you? Why do you think they sell all the "extras" for the system as add-ons instead of including features like wi-fi, and a proprietary hard drive? They're not doing it to be swell guys, they're doing it because that's how they make money.

I'm all for the option to change our usernames. Millions of online users are stuck with names they aren't happy with just because they got tired of waiting to play their brand new PS3. I couldn't play my new PS3 for awhile because all the descent names I could think of were already taken. Now that I've been playing for a few years there are quite a few names I've rolled over.
My understanding is that Sony feels we will be more responsible online if we are stuck with the same identity for eternity. I'm not sure I agree with that though.

I have a feeling there's a different reason other than Sony trying to teach responsibility to gamers world wide.
Maybe it's for you not to spend money on name changes, and spend money on, oh I don't know, GAMES?

I'm talking about Sony giving PSN users an OPTION just like Sony gives PSN users an OPTION to purchase PLUS. Are you afraid of Sony charging for online? If Sony charged people for online they WILL LOSE. Which is why Sony made PLUS which is OPTIONAL. Hey I do my share of buying games only the games I buy are PLAYSTATION EXCLUSIVE GAMES. How about you CaptainAlbator? Thank you SONY for keeping your Online Services free.
