All in favour of leaving it up to everyone how to represent
themselves, but I think it'd also be good if we encouraged proper
behaviour. Free-form *will* get abused and even though it won't
matter for the regulars (who'll get a laugh out of it), it'll
present a barrier to newcomers.

We've received a bit (not much) of negative feedback about the DC15
badge swapping that took place towards the end of the conference
— which was just a fun hack, and probably the people involved didn't
consider all consequences.

Let them write whatever they want on their badges, but please also
make sure they know that badges are primarily for others to identify
you, not for amusement purposes.
