Why are you displaying my real name?

I was extremely angry when I logged on to TA this evening and saw my real name being displayed. I need to have this removed ASAP and for it to revert back to my username.

This is deal breaker for me!

>>>why it suddenly changed to show my first name and initial the other day.<<<

First name Last initial is your "Friendly name." You can read more about it by going to the Help Center http://www.tripadvisor.com/help

then type in "friendly name" in the search box. That doesn't really explain what happened, though.
