I think that the money component of this feature is to discourage "casual renaming". It's not a *ton* of money, but enough to make (particularly kids) think twice. I really don't see it as a greedy move by blizzard.That said, I agree with the comments of many of the posters above -- names in online communities should not be changeable because you get into the problem of accountability. Be a dick and then change your name. Yes, if you *happen* to have that player on your ignore list that's great, but what about everyone else? Chances are many people will be unknown by their new names due to poor transmission of information. I think this is a bad move for the community even though I like the convenience of it.
