RJ is a special case. He looks for ways to make a mess of his mother tongue, so I wouldn't use him as an example for anything regarding spelling of usernames.
Using real names?? Facebook seems to require it, Google has been trying to force people to use their real names (with rather debatable results if the You-Tube fiasco was any indication) and I think there's a couple of other sites trying it. Even then, I don't see how it guarantees the use of real names, only the forbidding of "handles" like asj938. I don't have to give my real name and might not if I have reason to suspect something's amiss. I'll make up something on the fly.

Look, here on a forum you're not speaking like you would face to face anyway. So, how hard can it be to copy and paste a username if you want to refer to that person?
Some might prefer to capitalise mjmsprt40, in other words Mjmsprt40, since it is a custom in English that names have an initial capital letter.
For all practical purposes my name here is Macallan...
It's not the name that appears on my passport but how in Cthulhu's name would that even be relevant?
People here are free to choose pretty much any nickname they want, and as far as I'm concerned these should be treated as their names.
What i have written, i have written.

'Weird' by what metric?
You can't enforce your preference on everybody else...
...so give up trying.
