While creating my account name I turned my back and a friend thought it would be funny to put a name in for me. I don't like the account name and would like to change it.
I tried this a few months ago, and no luck. I was told it can't be changed or deleted. This is a little hard to believe considering this is supposed to be a community of developers. How could a system be designed without the ability to change an account
name, or at least delete it?

I am sorry, but the earlier info you received is essentially correct. Account names here are not changeable.
The account names here are shared across several sites:
This means that the same login/password you use to login here will work at all the sites i listed above. Because the account name gets shared across multiple sites, changing it is not supported.
If you would prefer to create a new account, you can still do so. If you are using a Live ID to login to the site, you will need to disassociate your Live ID from your current asp.net site account.
You can do so by submitting a request here:
Once your Live ID is disassociated from your asp.net site account, you can then use your Live ID to create a new asp.net site account.
