Are you able to name a profile the same on two accounts? (like account the account of dislekcia and the account of zeemeerman2 have both a profile named "Hello world") If so, I can understand for purposes of offline play, where you can't always check name availability. But the other way around, for online high score ranking purposes, you might not want to take the same name. Otherwise it might get confusing when looked up. "Now which of them is MY score? Hello world 2350 points or Hello world 2450 points, which was it? I only played once, that's true." Sorry if I'm not clear, but do you understand what I'm saying?
We'll probably differentiate a score for one of your profiles somehow, either that or use the email info before the @ sign as an identifier of sorts. Obviously we don't want to just give out email addresses, that would be irresponsible of us. It would also probably not make much sense to force players to have unique profile names, that wouldn't work so well for offline/online play. With Steam accounts it would obviously be a different story...
We have some basic protection in place to prevent a single account logging in from multiple locations, but beyond that who are we to say if you're playing the game you bought from a bunch of different machines? It's your game. I guess we'd like it if everyone that wanted to play went ahead to buy the game, but I don't think we can kid ourselves in today's game market
