Could this ever happen? How could we solve it? (Inspired by Twitter Verified Account)
Applying for a job someone includes http://stackoverflow.com/users/22656/jon-skeet in their Resume/CV as proof they are 'mazing.
Granted it would be difficult to convince the employer you choose the username jon-skeet (plus the picture), but there are plenty of +20k users with odd usernames and no picture.
I know it seems a trivial matter but, Twitter probably thought the same 18 month ago. And as we know people are getting jobs off the back of SO.
