For the past two and a half years, I have had a female avatar named Clarity. For reasons of my own, I deleted that avatar today. Deleting an avatar, however, does not automatically remove that name from people's friend lists. So I probably should not have been too surprised when, just a few hours later, a friend of mine PMed me to ask: "If you deleted Clarity, why is she online now?"
Sure enough, someone has already used that name again. It's a great name, and I am sure that person has no intention of impersonating me. But I am posting this just to inform everyone that, if you do see the new Clarity, she is not me.
