@ Sleutal - As to your refusal to use an Authenticator because you loose stuff, that is not a valid reason by any stretch of the imagination. Get one, keep it safe, know where you keep it. You loose it, that is in no way the fault of Blizzard, which you are trying to imply.Second, if you are not using an authenticator at this point in time you are on borrowed time. There are just too many 0-day exploits that can pop up that no virus/malware/trojan scanner in the world is going to be able to find on the day they come out.As to the paranoia about being able to see the Friends of Friends, it is ONLY those that are your RealID friends and NOT your regular friends list.It also boils down to, you are NOT FORCED TO USE REALID. It is an option. It is meant to be used with people you know and trust, not to that person you pugged at the last minute just to get a full raid.I do agree that using your battlenet ID for RealID does seem like a security risk, but a) You don't have to use it and b) it is not giving out your password with RealID, and honestly c) you should have an authenticator by this point, there really is no reason not to.
