>I completely agree with you. Look at all the WoW insider article writers. Their real name is posted on every article. They publicly write their opinions of WoW (which are not always well received). I can guarantee that you would NOT be able to find who I am where I live my phone number just by my name.< That's you. Others are not the same. Also note how many of us choose not to be WoW Insider article writers. Some of us have reasons for it. Some of us may not, but we can choose to do so.>Also, why would you want to?Do you really need to know what people could do with that information?> I don't see how people can say it's illegal for Blizzard to post your name, when they are telling you up front that they are going to do it and you choose to. When you play you hit I agree with all the terms and conditions, there is no, I agree to only some of if. Thats like knowing that Blizzard is going to charge you $15/mo and then telling your bank hey I didn't authorize that. Yeah, I know they said they were gonna do it, but I don't accept that part of the agreement. <Actually, the people can say it's illegal if their local laws prohibit Blizzard from doing it. I don't know if it's actually the case in this particular instance, I haven't studied the laws of every applicable entity, but it is pretty common for portions of contracts and agreements to be null and void. There are some things you can't sign away. The TOS even acknowledges this in one the clause. Now in this case, I don't know if such protections apply to me, or anybody else but I'll gladly encourage my legislators to implement them, and if they don't, then I'll refuse consent to this further agreement with Blizzard, as is my right. I also have the right to say what I feel about it, don't I?Or do you think just because some people can agree with something, that I, or anybody else should be forced to do so, or even to simply abide in silence?
