Yes it is allowed. When you check the user list there are a lot of very similar user names on this forum. With the number of users on this forum filtering to disallow similar names would make it a chore to find a name that was not taken.

I understand your concern but you are still new and only have 35 posts.

There are so many Bantymoms & silkiechickens here.

I think something should be done, diplomatically.

If someone created a new account as purple_chicken I would be VERY upset.

If that day ever comes when we have to ask 500 people or more to change user names because they are close to another one I will be taking a very long vacation.

That's too bad, espceially since Jolly Rancher is a rather uncommon name. But who knows- maybe you guys have the same name because you're so much alike and could be friends!
