I will wait a bit longer, but I think that the prompt will allow me to change my name without losing friends/rivals ... which is what I care about right now. If it doesn't clear up in a day or so I will change it (sounds like a STD)... but to what? Duh, duh, duhhhhh.
Also I copied my dug profile and made a new profile and I accidentally whooped up on some noobs. If it is a hacker that did this I hope they know that they are causing a lot of noob pain, because I cannot play against players close to my level.
