Looking at this question on SO I noticed that the user name in two of the answers ("William Bettridge-Radford") is cut off mid-character on the right hand side. It is quite a long user name but I still don't think it should be cut off mid-character - if truncated the truncation should preserve whole characters, and there should be some indication that it has been truncated, like "William Bettridge-Rad..." or similar.
I don't think this issue should be closed as status-bydesign - yes, I understand that if you have 26 characters and a proportional font, you are more likely to have to end up truncating something if it has "wide" characters in it, but there's no excuse for truncating it in the middle of a character, nor for failing to indicate visually to the user that they are looking at something that has been truncated.
So: how should I deal with this? If I open a new question it will just be closed as a duplicate. Is it OK to take the status-bydesign tag off the original question, effectively to "re-open" the bug?
