Jul 8th 2010 9:22AM Yeah...so my really close RL friend that plays WoW who just so happens to be asian (MINORITY) a woman (PREY) and has a very unique last name that when googled only shows her parents last name and etc. and yes, shes shown me how dangerous it can be for her future also.
She said that being asian, female and having a unique last name, an employer can google her name just to find it on a gaming website, which is frowned upon by employers and can risk a job application being denied.
I am AGAINST this idea to the max, just because some "white people" with similar names think its fine doesn't mean the rest of the world with unique last names don't mind, right?
ps. i'm african and proud of it, my last name is also unique (when googl'd only shows me and my two sister's facebook accounts)
