Censoring to work retrospectively on usernames

    Censoring currently works retrospectively on words in posts and thread titles, but not with usernames.

    I understand you may not want usernames such as **** or *******, so I would suggest that this is optional for those people who do want to be able to censor a username after the user has already registered with an offensive name.

    Of course you can stop them registering in the first place if you have a huge list of possible words in the censor list or disallowed usernames, but I have found that is not practical, and my censor list grows as I find more words that are not appropriate for our forum.
