    I'm sorry but there is absolutely nothing we can do about that. Unfortunately, you signed up for that account using your email address as your username and there is no way to change usernames. Even we can't do that.

    how about reporting it as a bug, where user cannot modify its displayed username?

    It is not a bug, so it cannot be reported as such. Profile/account names are used - not only here - but right across the whole complex of WPORG. It is this complexity that means we cannot amend usernames. With all due respect, it is not our fault that you chose to use your mail address as a username when you signed up for a WPORG account. All I can really suggest is that you consider obtaining a new Gmail address and let your old email address (and WPORG account) lapse.
