Actually, to preserve the case you can wrap everything in quotes:
CREATE ...
    "UserName" varchar(30)

Of course that means that now you have to do that in every statement
that uses that field, too...

SELECT username FROM badusers
ERROR

SELECT "UserName" FROM badusers
bad user

I suggest ditching the CamelCase and going with underline_seperators.
I'd also not use the bareword id, instead using bad_user_id. And I'd
name the table bad_user. But that's just me. :)
