Free StarCraft II Name Changes

The StarCraft II Website has an apology to players from Blizzard over their failure to live up to a promise for a paid service to allow name changes in StarCraft II, saying as a result of delays in rolling this out, they have added a free name change to everyone's account in the RTS sequel. Word is: "We’re planning to offer another free name change to all players when the new Clans feature goes live in the next couple of months, so don’t worry about removing your clan tag from your character name with this one. We will alert you to that when the time comes." There's no word in how much it is costing them to go through the vast expense of changing character names for nothing.

the cost is to prevent people from harassing others
Partially so. However, not when you have 1) Account Ignoring, and 2) Ban System.

You see, but Blizzard does not want to ban players. Otherwise, that would mean less monthly revenue $ for Blizzard.

astonished that there are people who are willing to pay for this "service"
Well, if you haven't learned by now; people are stupid. Younger people are more stupid, and are willing(or have no choice) to spend $10 to change their name because they had a temper tantrum.
