When I use user names I don't pick very original ones, my birthday is not in May. You just proved that people will take the time to look others up. Granted for you it was making a point.
Yes I can be stalked in many ways, though I never put my personal information out intentionally it is there. When I google my name and see that my personal information is out there because of voter registration it is a bit surprising and unsettling. I do not give my name to random people I don't know in real life. So while I would normal find myself not interesting enough to be searched, I am a woman who plays wow, enough reason for many I have encountered in wow who have done just that to others.
And in a time where Blizz is having an increase in account hacking, I also don't think this is the brightest idea they have had.
If it wasn't for the Support forums that they prefer to be used and in some cases have said is the only spot for your problem I would just ignore that the forums existed and go on with my business. Hard to do that when it isn't much of an opt-in or out choice at that point.
Jul 7th 2010 8:59AM To the person who says are they going to know its you specifically on facebook.... Yes my name is that unique, and yes I have the extreme end of privacy settings on facebook. However, I google searched myself and found some very disturbing information about myself, all actually me in the first 5 pages. Things that are beyond my control.
As a woman playing this game I have been harrassed in game already. Yes Bliz helped to take care of those issues. Now they are making it so that I cannot post on their official forums for anything.
They say it has always been an optional service, so why is it that they have always encouraged the use of the support forums as the best and in some cases only option.
I am extremely against this in many ways.
