That was well said, and although I'm not 100% decided yet, I think I agree with all you wrote.
I'd like to add to your list the reason that some posters use only public computers, or share with others even in families, and have serious IRL concerns when their name is discovered, or they believe it may be about to be. It becomes a safety issue right at that point.
If something as simple as a name change helps some so much that they wish/need/want to do it often, I have no problem with that. There have to be ways to cope with the disconcerting feelings that can result for the rest, guess we could just help each other find those ways.
