    Poor GM who posted his real name, is now in hiding after 11.4 million threats against his life.

    I think it's a bad idea but I never posted on the forums so couldn't give a fig.

    I'm all for getting rid of the trolls who post under an alt.

    But real names? Why?

    This forum along with every other doesn't display your real name unless you choose it to.

    I don't really see the problem with it but I think the forums will have to be private if they contain personal details so that guy on the BBC news article doesn't get stuck being the tea boy for the rest of his gaming days...

    Wow, dont think i've ever seen such an overwhelmingly negative response to an upcoming change before. Will be interesting to see if anything changes as a result of it.

    There is an article on Wow.com saying that Blizzard employees will not have their names on the forums! All rumor and scuttlebutt at the moment but...

    Haha, so they've already back-tracked on this! Although, probably not surprising after reading the BBC article Del posted

    Did you really expect the age of anonymous to last forever? This is the beginning, and the end mortals.
    A great many big businesses and probably a few legal types would be very interested in wiping anonymity from the internet. And net neutrality. We shall see how long it takes them.
