Well, I guess, Naming policy is strictly monitored by bartenders and every second thread comes with a warning for the members to change their name.
Will it not be better to write a 4 line JavaScript function, not allowing any member with wrong name to subscribe.

Here's a few places, just for starters
But, wait a minute...
What? Give up this extra special service offered by JavaRanch for *free*?
We get, *absolutely free*, the chance to practice reading instructions and then following them. This can come in really handy for future professional experience, such as understanding application requirements, user cases, etc.
Not only that, *at no extra cost*, we get exposed to other useful exercises such as agreeing to and signing a contract. Where else can you get this kind of preparation for real life business situations? Not only that, it's *free*!

The naming standard is actually part of a psychological study being done through Cornell University to determine if programmers are as smart as first graders and are able to follow simple, single-step instructions.
Indeed the entire JavaRanch site was built just for the sake of the naming standard test.
So far we have determined that the average first grader surpasses programmers in three areas: They are (1) better able to follow simple instructions, (2) more apt to accept correction, and (3) can eat their snacks without getting it all over their clothes.

We aren't picking on you Zeeshan. This has just been discussed to death. Besides if we change it soon we will have to come up with another way for the bartenders to get their post counts up

I thought that's what "Meaningless Drivel" was for.

Come on, I have the most fun when I get to post about someone bad name, and copying and pasting my post.
It really adds up on my post count.
It's a shame though that in the two forums I am moderatoring don't have as many name offenders as other forums.

Don't underestimate what all those congratulations posts in the Certification Results Forum can do for your total post count.
