Dammit, the comment thing didn't put spacing in my damn comment. Sorry for the somewhat giant wall-o-text. I do hope people read it and take the time to consider what i'm saying.Also, i'd like to add, in regards to people saying that the anti-RealID people are the vocal minority, consider this:It's true that the majority of people with WoW accounts don't use the forums, so they don't matter in this. So we take them completely out. We don't count them then, since they have no stake in this, and thus, are not a part of this debate.This does however, affect the people who use the forums. Consider the survey on this website, and all the thousands upon thousands of responses on the official forums, and whatever other surveys or comments are out there on other sites. And consider that some forum users may not have gotten the news yet, or just have no idea any of this is happening.Among the ones that do know, I think it's pretty safe to say that an -overwhelming- majority of the forum goers are opposed to this idea. And do you think the people unawares would think too much differently? Or that their differing opinions would tip the scales in favor of the opposite side? I doubt it. What you have is a majority, who is very vocal, and very angry about the changes that are planned. Remember, you cannot consider people who don't use the forum, since they have no stake in any of this. But amongst the people who actually use the forums, I think it's safe to say that the majority -really- doesn't want these changes.
