change log in name

I wish to change my log in name.

How do I either change it or delete it and create a new name?
# 2  
You can just stop using this login and create a new one.

For an older user who has quite a few posts, and doesn't want to lose those by starting with a new id, we do change login names. But since that won't be a problem for you, I suggest going with just creating a new id.
