Let me change god damn username im getting spammed!


I have a very generic username on my account i get 5-10 DAILY **bleep**ING reset requests to reset my password its annoying and at first i thought it was based on that hackers had my email adress and tried to get me to reset this way but it seems they are spamming my username instead, either let me change the username or disable the ability to request password on my username its freakin crazy.


And no its not the username i put into the community profile because here i can change the username....

That's ridiculous answer.  Normally a database will user an incremented ID, or special string to identify a user record in the database, and then the username/email/password can all be changed.  We've been building applications that way for 25 years now, what's the problem here?
