Keep Usernames case sensitive

Rather than strip all capitals from Usernames with strtolower() - it would be great to keep them case sensitive as intended and entered by the User.

This would not only cause less confusion for Users/Amins but would also enhance security and allow Users to use proper titles they way they were designed.

It also leads to potential issues like this: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4530

Personally, I can't see any benefit in converting Usernames to lowercase? It can/does cause confusion and likely requires more code to add that function that it would to leave it out?

If there is a benefit, I would be interested to know what that may be?

Just my thoughts.....
