As you can see, I have a different twitter and github name than Chris, but my profile almost looks identical. If Chris didn't prove his site-ownership, users may easily confuse us, because my twitter handle and github handle look identical to his, due to the font chosen. I also attached some images so you can see what I mean.

I should note, I registered maigorithms by mistake on keybase, I could have registered maLgorithms, which would cause users expecting to find Chris at a consistent URL to find me (not Chris) but looking really damn close.
We're just addressing this. Our workaround for now is to present all names as lowercase. We're already dealing with the standard cyrillic homographs, but we missed this attack. Thanks for pointing it out!
can you change the name of that account to something other than "Chris Coyne" and my photo? I'd like to leave your demo account up while we explore presentation options, and I don't want it to cause confusion to users in the short run who are actually searching for me.
