Its a privacy breach, i'm surprised this is legal. I understand the logic behind the move and i feel that it will improve the forums by having people think before they attach idiocy to their names. Having said that, unless they only stick to new forums and posts i don't see how this is legal. They can't change established posts without our consent. So lets just hope they go about it the right way.I for one will be using the starcraft II and cataclysm forums and think it will be an improvement if handled the right way.

The problem is that people will basically not think more before they post.In my area we have a "local" kind of Facebook site. You should see the shit that's being posted in the forums there, ranging from simply stupid to verbal harrassments about other people's opinions and so on. And the best thing is that you can automatically associate the poster with his account and thus (if he shows this info) know his name, know where he lives and so forth. That's why I usually express my opinion in a moderate way, but it also shows that most ppl don't rly care about that.
