 The author link under post name in Twenty Ten theme is showing username

 Mouseover author name Denzel Chia and you can see the username for login
 in the link at the browser status bar.

 Perhaps this can be changed to use author ID?

 Anybody can get the login username this way and what is left is the
 password to guess. This also defeats the purpose of allowing to use own
 username instead of admin.
