Delicious sucks again...some more

Thanks to [personal profile] sineala's post here (and someone linking me via pinboard), I got a heads up that Delicious is displaying the full name in your account publicly.

For some people, its no big deal, since they entered a psued/initials/their username, but for others it looks like their RL name is now displayed for all to see connected to their delicious username (which is frequently their fandom psued) and perhaps their fandom presence if they've linked to their LJ or other website.

Make sure to check your delicious account, and ensure your privacy! From comments in the post I referenced, it sounds like you have to overwrite the current name entered with something else to remove the name.

Pondering more and more just deleting my delicious, instead of letting it stay to preserve the data. I already *only* use pinboard for my personal bookmarks (though still use delicious for a comm). Hmmm.
