So can we do something about profiles like this that use homophobic slurs?

Profile looks harmless to the site in the sense that the user hasn't done anything for at least a decade. However, I'm also all for prohibition of any homophobia here (I think it already is forbidden), and it should definitely extend to usernames.

Funny thing is, I actually exchanged a bit with this guy back in the day (his band Suffer the Silence is on the site, interesting atmospheric melodeath / doom). From what I remember he seemed to be quite cool, and I don't think his username revealed anything more than immaturity - he must have been in his late teens when he joined the site. Don't forget it all happened some 15 years ago, when such homophobic ""jokes"" were alas quite common in the metal world. I guess he'd be the first to be sorry about that if he ever comes back, which is unlikely to happen (think he joined the army, then I lost his trace).
