Sorry if this question is misplaced, but I could not find the bug reporting functionality.

I'm trying to change my display name, but I'm getting this error:

Oops! There was a problem updating your profile: Display name may only be changed once every 30 days; you may change again on Jul 23 at 17:33

Is this intentional or a bug?

    If you need your name changed more frequently than once every 30 days just email the address at the bottom of every page. Commented Jul 1, 2011 at 21:43

It is very much intentional. The error message should make that clear. (:
