@Liam O'Connor I'm not agreeing with the Facebook thing or anything. I realize outside of the game that this pretty trivial. I'm agreeing that it's a good but bad idea. I don't really like people to know my real name unless I know them. It just feels too personal.My main concern is the point I made in my post. "Also, using real names won't always stop trolls. I mean, only my real ID friends know my real name. If I chose to post something along the lines of "NERF LOL WTF" a thousand times, to the readers I'd just be another guy." There is no way of finding some one called John Smith's character in WoW. So what does he have to fear by trolling?And it's not the constructive criticism I'm talking about. I'm talking about the people who roll a low level character and then just go to the forum and abuse posters. A lot of that happens, usually when someone cannot formulate a counter argument. But like I said, if someone's going to do that why should they be discouraged that they have a name someone can't possibly trace?
