 Hi boonebgorges

 Thanks for the explanation. I suppose the reason why I think along those
 lines is I feel usernames in the context of an online comminity are more
 than just a means to authenticate. Why do we have usernames at all when
 authentication can be done via an email address or even a numerical ID? I
 think the @-mentions feature and having usernames in the URL are powerful
 features of BP - features that aren't necessarily critical to WordPress if
 you consider WP to be a CMS or blogging tool and not a platform to build
 an online community.
