@ Koskun"So, when you go out in the world and introduce yourself to someone you believe they will never mention you to anyone else ever? When you go for a job interview you believe the person that interviewed you will never talk about you with someone else?Why is it that someone knowing your real name in a virtual world is so much worse than someone in the real world?"Because if someone who interviews you were to do this, that would be an automatic lawsuit if it was discovered. There are legal and ethical ramifications to it.If you don't know the difference between what goes on on the internet, the "virtual world" and the real world, well, you must be new to the internet. You also must of ignored my post further down about a girl who already has had her address and phone number posted in trade chat on her server because someone who was on her friends friends list, not on hers, saw her real name and did a search on it and got the information. That one incident at the very least should prompt Blizzard to scrap friends of friends. There is nothing that is useful for. Why are people opposed to something that would allow more people to enjoy this service and not ruin the enjoyment that those who don't care about privacy currently have.
