How can I administer 'Source Repository Aliases' in Bamboo

Some of my users have identified their own username as an alias for the source code repository in Bamboo (Administration->Security:Users)...or so it seems. Some users have an alias equal to their own username, others have none. A few have experimented with identifying users other than themselves. They have done this so that they are informed when that user makes changes to the code which prompt a build in Bamboo. The problem is that these aliases then skew statics in the Authors section.

Now, each time somebody adds a user as an alias (spelled correctly, misspelled, obsolete or otherwise) it gets added to some mystical list deep in Bamboo and becomes an option in a choicelist when other users edit their profiles. This leads to more usage of this field and a viscious cycle.

Does anyone know how I can remove alias options from this list?

Does anyone know how I can prevent users from editing aliases, even on their own accounts?

This is very related to another topic in this forum: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/16701/how-to-delete-a-user-alias

...but the answers there just skimmed the surface.

Bump... anyone have an answer for this?

I to am a little dissappointed in the documentation on how to admin these 'aliases' and what they may or may not be doing for cross-user functionality.
