    I recently changed my name, and it was reverted back to the original name by an administrator. Why was this done? I didn't violate any forum rules that I can see.

    This is why:

    Q. Can I change my username?
    A.
    Yes, this option is available to all Platinum members who have been registered for at least six months and have at least 50 posts. You can change your username once every four months. It can be done here. A name change can be denied if the username contains profanity, special symbols and/or characters, or is being used in a way to harass or mock another poster.

    Oh, really? So, is "harassing and mocking" other posters generally against the forum rules, or is it only prohibited in the form of a name change?

    Harassment is against the rules regardless of the method in which it is done. Whether it's flaming a user directly in a post or thread, using the name change feature to mock the user, or having an avatar/sig that attacks them.
