Re: Outing of renamed pirates is prohibited.
 
If they really cared about hiding their identity they would just delete their old portraits though.

You don't have to delete the portraits, moving them to an alt works too.

Personally, I think that renames should be public information, recorded by the game and that old names should be held in reserve for at least 60-90 days.

I can understand not allowing people to out alts, but trying to stop people from outing renames is going to be a much larger problem for OOO. Not only are there things like portraits, but you can also get a clue via renames in hearties, roommates/managers, stats/standings, appearances/clothes, etc. In most cases, it will be easy for certain people to know when someone has changed their name, so easy that they won't see anything wrong with casually revealing the information. OOO could end up spending a lot of OM time trying to whack people for outing renames, time that could be far better spent doing other things.
