    Well I may be in the minority on this one, but as a Server Owner I use the old names list to make my server safer.  We are whitelisted and take members by application only. We have had some Toxic Players in the past and they were banned, some them have tried to get re-whitelisted by changing their user names. If we no longer have access to the information of old names they could slip through and be re-whitelisted and start doing what they did to get banned in the first place. We do not ban at a whim,  but we do for Racial or prejudicial slurs, griefing , stealing and other inappropriate behavior. We were using the names to actually protect our player base.
