I don't understand why the question about how many user names have been changed to support Monica was closed.
The reason given was that the question did not appear to be about the technology used to support this site.
But, just how does this question differ in that regard from the majority of questions about The Mess?
Motivation for the question about user names (both the question in question, and this question):
We have reached a point where almost everything that can be said about The Mess has been said, and said several times. Also, Monica has retained legal counsel. Both reasons argue for something like a cease fire on our part, but one where we keep the issue visible and maintain pressure in a way that is not counterproductive. Modification of user name is one way -- not the only way -- to maintain visibility. Data on this this point would be helpful in deciding the most useful tactics. I emphasize that this is not meant to be divisive; strong supporters of Monica have shown their support without adopting this tactic.
I added this paragraph to the question in question, but having fewer than 3,000 rep points, it probably is not yet visible to anyone but me.
