I checked under inactive users, there is no names listed there, and they are having the same issues, Such as a friend tries to register with a username "Josh" and it says "This username is already taken" I'm not sure what's going on.

Hello,

Try this:
Admin Panel > General > Security:
Unauthorize subscriptions made with the most commonly used spam usernames. : Set it to Yes > Save

See if it will fix the problem, please take note that setting this option will make it an open gateway for spam usernames.
