jsConnect sometimes causing email address to be displayed as username!

edited May 2018 in Vanilla 2.5 Help

If someone joins my website and chooses a username of a pre-existing forum account, when they inherit that account, their username changes to be their actual email.

I realise the inheritance issue is bad in itself and I'm going to eventually resolve that by preventing re-use of deleted usernames on my website but in the meantime, how can I stop emails showing as usernames? It shouldn't be possible with character limitations.

I've noticed this since the recent update and it's a serious privacy bug for me and I don't want to be sued. In previous versions, members would not inherit the old accounts and instead would be prevented from connecting to the forum. I was fine with this as they would complain and I would resolve.
