As somebody that has been permabanned from the forums for posting "I chuckled" in a 2 year old thread about warrior pvp gear...let me just tell you that they aren't giving up on policing the forums. While I'd rather the forum accounts be tied to one singular persona, I too feel that giving out my real name online is a bit... much. World of Warcraft has some of the most dedicated trolls, and some of the most dedicated black hatters on the internet trying to get your account info, your credit card info, your home address, and any information they can about you...So I see it as a bad idea. That is the bad part.On the plus side though, it will escalate account thefts to full out identity thefts, which does in fact make it the FBI's problem. That is an interesting tidbit that I don't believe you guys have brought up yet. That is the good part.The ugly part is the people. I don't WANT to know everybody's name. this isn't Cheers, this is the World of Warcraft.
